Spring Housing Selection Process and Guidelines
The Spring Housing Preference Form is to be completed and submitted via Google Form no later than November 30th at 5pm. This form should be submitted only by:
Students currently in campus housing who wish to make a room change from Fall semester to Spring semester
Students returning from study abroad and in need of a spring 2018 housing assignment
Students returning from a leave of absence in need of a spring 2018 housing assignment
Once all preference forms are submitted, participating students will each be assigned a random housing selection priority number by class year
Once room selection begins, students will be contacted in groups of 10-20 according to their assigned priority number and sent all room options available campus-wide at the time of their selection. Each group will have 48 hours to submit a list of preferred rooms before the rooms are offered to the next group of participating students.
The Spring Room Selection Process will continue in December until all available rooms have been selected OR all participating students receive a spring housing assignment.
Any participating student who does not have the opportunity to select a room in December (due to availability) will be contacted when additional rooms are made available for selection in the second week of January.
Students must be registered for spring semester classes to be eligible for participating in Spring Room Selection.
Students hoping to move from their current fall room to a new spring housing assignment will need to vacate their fall room by December 22nd at noon and can place their belongings in storage during winter break. Newly assigned rooms will be available when the residence halls open for the spring semester on Saturday, January 27th.
Submitting a Spring Housing Preference Form does necessarily require a commitment to a move. If the rooms available at a student’s time of selection do not match their preferences, they can decide at that time to remain in their current room.
If students are hoping to move for the spring semester, but do not receive a new spring room assignment prior to leaving for Winter Break, they will still need to vacate their current room before departing for the semester. Their belongs can be placed in storage, and they will be able to choose a new room in January prior to their return to campus
Single rooms assigned through this process will be assigned to Class of 2018 and Class of 2019 only, or to students approved for a medical single housing accommodation by Disability Services.
The deadline to submit the Spring Housing Preference Form is November 30th at 5pm.
