What if I am studying abroad in the upcoming fall? Students studying abroad in the fall will not be eligible to participate in room draw.  If you will be returning to campus for the winter semester, you will receive more information about the winter lottery process from the Office of Residence Life in the fall.  You may not have a friend keep an open space in a double room for the first semester in anticipation of your return to campus for winter semester.

What if I have applied to study abroad in the fall or for the academic year but have not yet been approved to do so?  Students who plan to study abroad will not receive lottery numbers.  If these plans change, you should contact our office as soon as possible.

What if I am not able to choose a room at room selection? It is possible that not every member of the rising sophomore class will be able to choose a room during room selection.  Don’t worry if you are unable to pick a room!  We have a Summer Placement process, which you will receive more information about

What if I am not happy with my room? We understand that some students may be disappointed with the rooms they select through this process.  Participation in the Summer Placement Lottery is limited to students who were not able to choose a room during the spring room selection process, or whose roommates have cancelled their housing assignment and vacated a space in their rooms.  If you are not happy with the room you select in the spring, you will be able to add yourself to the Room Change Process on the first day of fall semester classes.  However, we encourage all students to give their housing assignments a fair chance – you may learn to love your new room!
