The housing lottery and assignment processes are open to students who are: 1) currently enrolled for the spring semester and 2) plan to be enrolled on campus for the subsequent fall semester.

If you are not currently enrolled or do not plan to be on campus for the fall semester, please review the appropriate eligibility guidelines below.

Currently on a Leave of Absence

If you are currently on a leave of absence (not enrolled), you are not eligible to participate in any housing process for the upcoming year.  You will be assigned housing over the summer after the currently enrolled students have been assigned.

Fall abroad

If you have applied or been accepted to study abroad for the fall semester, you are not eligible to participate in the housing assignment or lottery process.  Fall abroad students will be prompted to submit spring housing preferences prior to departure.  You may update your request through the end of the fall semester, when spring housing assignments are finalized.  Due to the high occupancy level during the fall semester, we cannot hold rooms open or pre-assign spring semester spaces.

If you anticipate having limited or no e-mail access during your time abroad, please contact the Director of Residence Life before you begin your semester abroad.


Planning to take a Leave of Absence or to Transfer

If you are are planning to take a leave of absence or transfer (i.e. not be enrolled on campus for the fall semester) you should not participate in the any housing assignment or lottery processes.

Students whose roommates withdraw from housing after the housing assignment or lottery process will be assigned a new roommate or may be relocated to a different room by the Office of Residence Life.
