Application Procedure

A. Housing Applications

Housing applications are sent each year to current faculty tenants and to new faculty when their employment contract is accpted.   An application must be completed each year.  Additional applications may be obtained from the Department of Housing and Transportation.  Completed applications are to be returned by April 15th.

B. Priority List

After completed applications have been returned, each applicant who wishes to enter Faculty Housing or move from one faculty residence to another is assigned a position on a priority list in accordance with a point system developed by the Faculty Benefits Committee.  The details of the system are explained under Eligibility.

C. Assignment of a Residence

1. In accordance with the priority list, each eligible faculty member is notified of the residence available at that time.  The applicant in turn notifies the College of her or his interest, if any, in a particular house or apartment offered. The residence chosen is assigned to that faculty member.
2. Once assigned a residence, the faculty member is asked to sign a lease and to return one copy to the Faculty Housing Office.  If it is not returned within 7 days, the offer is withdrawn and the residence is offered to the next eligible person.
3. The terms of occupancy set fourth in the Lease are important and binding, and should be read in their entirety.
