Whether you want to stay in your current hall or select a new one, there are some things you can do to get prepared and make the process smooth and quick.
Make sure you know your dates and deadlines for room selection.
Room Selection Helpful Hints
Your process is based on your selection
Your room selection processes is based on your housing selection. The room selection process is set up in six distinctly different lotteries (processes). If you wish to return to your current room (in eligible halls/rooms only), you should participate in the Sourdough Lottery. If you did not get your first housing choice during Sourdough Lottery then you should select during the Stake Your Claim lottery (same hall/different room). If you want to buy-out your room (and we have buy-outs available) you will be placed in the Buy-Out Lottery (only applies if you answered ‘Yes’ to buy-out question on your Housing and Dining Application).
Make sure you know your requirements
Lock in your roommate
Lock in your roommate before you select your room. Make any additions and changes to your roommate requests in advance of your room selection time. You can make additions and deletions during the scheduled time of your selection, but using this valuable time when you could be selecting your room could result in another individual selecting the room that you want.
You can pull in roommates from off campus or new students. You may select a roommate who does not currently live on campus or is a new student. However, the potential roommate must complete and return a paper housing contract and have the housing deposit paid at least three (3) business days (M-F) prior to your selection date in order to be “pulled in” during the process. Remember that roommate requests must be mutual on each student’s self service page.
