- Determine your desired roommates and building for next year.
- Complete all necessary forms, which include:
- Housing Application
- Room and Roommate Preference Form
- If you have roommates planned for next year, only one form is necessary for the room.
- If you do not have roommates planned for next year, please complete the Roommate Survey so we can find you the best possible roommate.
- Co-ed Policy Form
- This form is only necessary if you plan to live in a co-ed room next year.
- Over Occupancy Form
- This form is only necessary if you plan to live in an over-occupied room next year.
- Email all forms to email@example.com. Forms are accepted starting at 9 AM on April 13, 2020 and ending at 4 PM on April 17, 2020.
- Forms submitted before 9 AM on April 13, 2020 will not be accepted.
- Applications submitted after 4pm on April 17, 2020 will be placed after all other placements have been made.
- If you have roommates planned for next year, you may want to consider having one person email the forms for everyone in the room.
- The Office of University Housing will be placing all students based on the preferences indicated on the Room and Roommate Preference Form
- As applications are received, they will be timestamped.
- Applications will then be placed in order of class level
- Your class level is based on the credits you have earned as of now; credits in progress do not count.
- For example, if you have senior status and are the first person to email your application, you and your roommates will be placed first during the senior placement round.
- Students will be assigned during the placement round of the roommate with the highest class level.
- For example, if a junior, two sophomores, and a freshman are living together, they will be assigned a room during the junior placement round.
- The Office of University Housing will look at your preferences marked on the new Room and Roommate Preferences Form.
- For example, if you marked your first choice as a Donley 2-bedroom apartment, and put three specific room choices, depending on your timestamp, you will either get one of your room choices, or we will try to give you the same room number on a different floor.
- If none of your room choices are available, but the building is, we will try to place you in a different room within the same building.
- If all rooms are full in your first building choice, we will then place you in your second, or possibly third choice building, depending on spaces available.
- Please remember, the Room and Roommate Preferences form is a guide for us regarding your preferences. We will do our best to give each student the best possible rooming situation.
- Students with an approved medical accommodation through the Office of Disability Services will be emailed separately regarding their procedure. However, they should still email all forms during the week of renewal.
- Do Not contact the Office of University Housing in regards to where you were placed once the week of renewal is over. All students will receive their placement via email in July. We will not respond to any email inquiries about placement.
- Wait List Procedure
- If you receive your placement in July, and did not get your building of choice, you may then email a Waitlist Form to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will not accept wait list forms for a different room number within the same building you were assigned.
