March Room Selection

March Room Selection Timeline for 2020-2021

During the winter semester, most rising seniors, juniors, and sophomores will select their room for the next academic year. All students taking classes in the fall semester, whether they plan to be living off-campus, or on-campus in a theme house, suite, or any other type of housing must complete an application in HouseCat. The process begins with an application and ends with selecting your housing assignment during the room selection process.
