Each year, the Residence Life Office conducts a process called “Room Lottery" for all students currently on-campus wishing to return to on-campus housing for the next school year.
This process, traditionally begins at the end of February and concludes with room selection starting the 2nd week of April, allows students to choose their roommates and the place they wish to live from a list of available campus housing. Once students choose their space through this process that is where they will live during the following school year.
Room Lottery begins with students completing a Campus Housing Agreement for the next academic year. Once students have turned in their Campus Housing Agreement to the Residence Life Office, they are eligible to select a room.
Order of room selection is determined by your class status as determined by the university according to how many credits you have earned through the Fall of that academic year. Each class is randomized by a computer system with Seniors going first, Juniors second and so on.
Room Selection will take place online. Specific lottery and room selection instructions will be sent via email to students who completed a Campus Housing Agreement and turn it into the Residence Life Office by the assigned date. Students will also select their meal plan for the next year during the online room selection.
Following Room Lottery, students must update their health records utilizing an electronic site which students will be notified of.
