Housing Applications refer to the processes by which eligible individual students or groups of students secure housing through an application or group roster.  Students who are assigned housing through a Housing Application process may not participate in a Lottery Event or be assigned through any other assignment process.  Students who withdraw from an assignment made through one these Housing Application processes will be reassigned over the summer through the wait list.  Students who are not accepted into a process will be able to participate in subsequent Housing Application Processes or the Lottery.

6+ Suite Housing

6+suites are self-contained living units that include a mixture of doubles and singles, a common space, bathroom, and a private kitchen. Offerings include 7-person apartments in Fisher East (may be Gender-inclusive), the 6-person female unit in Marquis Hall, and the 6-person house at 421 Hamilton (may be Gender-inclusive).

  • All group members must complete the 6+ Suite application in MyHousing by the deadline (see Timeline below).
  • Applicants must have the number of fully-matched roommates in their group to fill the requested unit to capacity (see Roommates below).
  • Availability is limited and assignments are based on class year seniority.

Block Housing

A block is a section of a larger floor community within a residence hall.  Blocks are primarily comprised of double rooms though some include one single bedroom or a triple.   Block size may range from four to eight persons and may be co-ed including mixed gender bedrooms.  (Due to the limited availability of gender-inclusive suites, we encourage rising sophomore students to use the block housing option to live in a mixed-gender living situation.)  Assignments are not based on building preference but applicants may request a housing rate tier.

  • All group members must complete the Block Housing application in MyHousing by the deadline (see Timeline below).
  • Applicants must have the number of fully-matched roommates in their group to fill the requested Block size to capacity (see Roommates below).
  • Submission of an application indicates each student’s willingness to accept an assignment in any of the buildings designated for Block housing.

Block Housing for the 2020-21 academic year may be located in Easton (doubles, singles), Farber (doubles, singles), Keefe (doubles, singles), Kirby House (men only; double rooms only), March Hall (double rooms only), McKeen (single gender groups: double rooms only for women; triple, doubles, singles for men), Ramer (doubles, singles), Rubin (doubles, singles), Soles (suites for 6 women –  single and double bedrooms), South College (double, triples), and Watson Hall (double rooms only).

Gender Inclusive Housing

Students interested in living with friends in a mixed-gender unit can participate in the Gender inclusive process.  Gender inclusive units will be available in the Fisher East and West, Watson Hall, and Watson Courts.  Applications are also accepted for mixed gender double rooms.

  • All group members must complete the Gender Inclusive application in MyHousing by the deadline (see Timeline below).
  • Applicants must have the number of fully-matched roommates in their group to fill the requested unit to capacity (see Roommates below).

Note: Students who wish to live in a mixed-gender arrangement are not limited to the housing options available through the Gender Inclusive application.  It is also possible to establish a mixed gender group through other housing application processes:

  • Eligible rising seniors may select gender inclusive off-campus apartments through the Priority Lottery
  • 6+ suite and Block housing applicants can request mixed-gender groups through the roommate matching process.
  • Rising sophomores are encouraged to use the Block housing option to live in a mixed-gender living situation because assignments are made in class year seniority order and availability is limited.

Grossman House for Global Perspectives

The Grossman House community is comprised of 25 citizens representative of international students, domestic students that have studied abroad, and domestic students that have a strong interest in globalization but have not studied abroad.  This combination of backgrounds brings together students who have had different experiences but who share a common interest in understanding globalization.

Grossman Citizens represent a variety of academic majors and application is open to currently enrolled rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors.  The Grossman House Application must be submitted through the Residence Life OurCampus group by the deadline.

After acceptances are finalized, Residence Life will manage room and suite assignments using the same class-year priority system as the regular room lottery (rising-seniors have preference, etc) and giving preference to returning citizens.  While applicants may specify a preferred roommate on the application form, apartments will be filled to promote the integration of students from different backgrounds and experiences.  Apartments and bedrooms within Grossman may be gender-inclusive.  Occupancy is primarily double bedrooms within five-, and six-person apartments which contain a private kitchen, bathroom, and furnished common area.

McCartney North and McCartney South

McCartney North and McCartney South are privately-owned and operated halls available as a housing option for students. The College is partnering with the property owner to provide a  living experience consistent with the college-owned halls.  McCartney North units are single bedroom suites; McCartney South units are double bedroom semi-suites.

Offerings in McCartney North are 1, 3, and 4 person suites (a majority of the suites are 4-person). The suites include student bedrooms, in-unit bathroom(s), and common area with refrigerator, sink, cabinets, and dining table with chairs.

Offerings in McCartney South are for groups of 2, 4, 6, or 8. These semi-suites are two double bedrooms connected by a shared bathroom.

  • All group members must complete the McCartney Residences application in MyHousing by the deadline (see Timeline below).
  • Applicants must have enough proposed roommates to fill the requested suite to capacity.
  • The group should also fully match as roommates in the McCartney Residences roommate group process (see Roommates below).
  • Assignments are based on class year seniority and availability of unit size.

Note:  Students who are placed in these halls will sign a contract with the owner.  Some terms differ from the College Housing Contract.  More information can be found in McCartney Residences FAQs.

The Monroe Neighborhood

Students interested in establishing a Monroe House will submit an application outlining a proposed topic of interest (curricular or intellectual) and supporting program ideas.   Applicants are expected to review the Monroe Neighborhood Expectations before applying.  A vital step is to obtain support from a faculty member or administrator who has an interest and/or expertise in your topic.  All houses in the Monroe Neighborhood are substance-free.

  • Houses must fill to occupancy with three students.  Groups of six are also welcome to establish two side by side Houses.
  • One application should be submitted for the group through the Residence Life OurCampus group by the deadline.
  • Eligible applicants will have a cumulative GPA of 2.80 or above and not actively on any level of Disciplinary Probation nor have ever been on Disciplinary Probation Level II.

Wellness Housing

This is an opportunity for students to live with fellow residents who share a focus on creating balance in their life and promoting overall well-being.  Members commit to maintaining a substance-free living environment.  Traditional upper-level wellness housing is located in Keefe Hall and Ramer Hall.  Groups may apply as a wellness block.

Self-Directed Wellness housing is located in off-campus apartments and is available for juniors and seniors who have previously lived in a traditional wellness community and wish to increase their independence and autonomy.  Off-campus eligibility guidelines apply.

  • Each student must complete the Wellness application in MyHousing by the deadline.
  • Assignments for applicants who are accepted will be processed giving priority to students with prior residency in a wellness community and then in class-year seniority order.

 

Housing Rosters

Several living groups manage their own occupancy.   These groups include Greek Chapter Houses, Arts Houses, McKelvy Scholars Program, Special Interest Houses, Hillel, and the Portlock Black Cultural Center.  Questions about residency in these areas should be directed to the leadership of the group.

Roommates

If you are looking to live with a roommate or group of people in an application process that runs through MyHousing, you will need to complete the roommate matching steps. Only fully matched roommate groups where each person has submitted a corresponding application will be assigned through this process.  Roommate matching is done through MyHousing.
