Any prepayment made after March 5, 2014, is considered a late prepayment. Students with late prepayments are not allowed to participate in room selection, including being pulled in by students who DID put in on-time payments. Students who who pay late should initiate their housing prepayment, then come to the Housing Office with a copy of their receipt for further instruction. While students making late prepayments will NOT be allowed to participate in the online room selection process - once again, including being pulled in by other students - the late payers will go on a list to be assigned a space as one comes available after the online process is complete.
Thematic housing applications will be available in the Housing Office beginning Thursday, March 6. Students wishing to take part in Upperclass Honors Housing (in Hickory Hall) need to be current active members of the Honors program, and put in their prepayment appropriately between February 18 and March 3, and fill out the Thematic Housing Application by March 15 . Students wishing to take part in Upperclass Quiet, Substance Aware, or Grad/Law housing need to put in their prepayment appropriately between February 18 and March 3, and fill out the Thematic Housing Application by March 14.
For the 2014-2015 academic year, Willow Hall will be switching from full-size beds to extra-long twin beds. This is part of the Housingwide plan to use only one size bed, which will enable us to purchase mattresses and fixtures in bulk. The only remaining halls with full-size beds will be Aspen Hall and Ivy Hall. Every other hall will have extra-long twin beds.
Information about room selection will be coming out more rapidly in the next few weeks. If students are NOT participating in thematic housing, the next step is to receive a Room Selection Ranking number. This should happen on or around the evening of March 24.
NOTE: The deadline for requesting ADA Accommodations for returning students was February 14. Students interested in ADA Accommodations for the 2014-2015 academic year need to follow the ADA procedure listed here. Students who need accommodations should turn in ADA paperwork, then go through the housing room selection process as normal. If the selected room does not meet the need for accommodations, the student may be moved over the summer.
