Residential Life Policy: Summer Assignment Process

The summer assignment process will be treated as a second, paper-based Lottery. Therefore, students who select housing during the Lottery will not be eligible to enter this process. Only students without housing at the conclusion of the final night of the Lottery will be eligible to file a Housing Preference Form. Students who selected housing who wish to find alternative housing may enter the Room Change Request process.

Assignments will be made in the following priority order (with 1 being first):

  1. Rising students unable to select housing at the Lottery based on 1) there being no room inventory left to select; or 2) there being only one room triples or quads remaining at the time of their Lottery number being called) and who submit an application by the stated deadline (see the Residential Calendar for exact date). These will be processed in order of priority number (see Priority Numbers and Lottery Numbers) without regard to the date or time in which the application was returned, provided it was returned by the deadline stated above.
  2. Incoming transfer students. These will be processed by semester level.
  3. Rising seniors who did not select housing at the Lottery by choice (eg, abroad with no proxy, passed at the Lottery or no show) who submit an application by the stated deadline (see the Residential Calendar for exact date). These will be processed in the order they are received.
  4. Rising juniors who did not select housing at the Lottery by choice (eg, abroad with no proxy, passed at the Lottery or no show) who submit an application by the stated deadline (see the Residential Calendar for exact date). These will be processed in the order they are received.
  5. Rising sophomores who did not select housing at the Lottery by choice (eg, abroad with no proxy, passed at the Lottery or no show) who submit an application by the stated deadline (see the Lottery Residential Calendar for exact date). These will be processed in the order they are received.
  6. All other students who did not submit a housing preference form or missed the deadline (see the Residential Calendar for exact date). These will be processed in the order they are received (then by semester level for all students who did not submit a preference form).
