Here is the schedule for when your Room Selection Number is eligible to select: 2015-2016 Lottery Schedule
Here is the list of rooms that can not be retained for next year: Nonretainable List
PLEASE NOTE: Due to unanticipated demand, all of Evergreen Hall will be considered "Quiet Housing" for 2015-2016. Subaware Housing will be in Hickory Hall.
The room selection site is currently closed. It will not be accessible until late March.
***Please visit the How-To page for videos and PDF guides on the room selection process! The software has changed since last year, so all students will need to learn the new system!***
ROOM SELECTION SCHEDULE OVERVIEW
February 13 - The deadline for ADA applications has passed. Students interested in ADA Accommodations for the 2015-2016 academic year need to follow the ADA procedure listed here.
February 17 - March 4 - ***Any prepayment made after March 4, 2015, 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.***
Housing Prepayments accepted. This involves submitting a $200 non-refundable housing prepayment. Prepayments can be made using a credit card online through the portal. Housing prepayments can be made at the University Enrollment Center located in the Foster Administration Building. Please do not mail in your Housing prepayment check. The Enrollment Center does accept credit card payments via the telephone (508-999-9129). The credit card line hours are 9:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Monday and Thursday, and 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. The prepayment does not guarantee a student an on-campus room, but does ensure inclusion in the Participation Lottery. Please note: students with a balance of $500 or more will not be allowed to participate in the room selection process - any prepayments made could be applied to the student's outstanding balance rather than Fall 2015 housing.
In addition, students who are in the College Now program, Endeavor Scholars, Commonwealth Scholars, or Pell Grant recipients receive a deferral and should NOT pay the $200 prepayment. These students should 1) make sure their account balance is less than $500. The student then needs to come to the housing office in Oak Glen Hall (bring your student ID!) in order to be placed on the list for Room Selection.
March 5 - 13 - The deadline for Thematic Housing Applications has passed, and applications for thematic housing will no longer be accepted.
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 17 and March 4. They then need to fill out the Thematic Housing Application between March 4 and March 13. If the thematic application is not completed by Friday, March 13, the student is not allowed to participate in thematic selection, retention, or pull-in. These students will participate in general housing selection.
Students wishing to take part in Upperclass Quiet, Substance Aware, Nursing/Engineering, or Grad/Law housing need to put in their prepayment appropriately between February 17 and March 4. They should then fill out the Thematic Housing Application by March 13. If the thematic application is not completed by Friday, March 13, the student is not allowed to participate in thematic selection, retention, or pull-in. These students will participate in general housing selection.
March 25 - Room Selection Ranking numbers are assigned. Again, students MUST put in a prepayment (or process a deferral) between February 17 and March 4 in order to receive a room selection ranking number and participate in ANY section of room selection, INCLUDING BEING PULLED IN by another student.
Monday, March 30 - (1:30 pm) Students are now eligible to set pull-in passwords/pins. This is for students with an assigned room selection ranking number. Your pull-in password needs to be set before the person pulling you in logs in to select a space.
Tuesday, March 31 - Students who currently live in thematic areas AND who have filled out the thematic application for next year may be eligible to retain their rooms and pull in other thematic students. These thematic areas include Grad/Law, Honors, Nursing/Engineering, Substance Awareness, and Quiet Housing. Students who are eligible to participate in thematic housing have received a separate email informing them of their status.
Wednesday, April 1 - Students who filled out the thematic application for next year are eligible to select rooms in approved thematic areas. These thematic areas include Grad/Law, Honors, Substance Awareness, Quiet Housing, Sophomore Nursing/Engineering, Sophomore Substance Awareness, and Sophomore Quiet. Students who are eligible to participate in thematic housing have received a separate email informing them of their status.
Thursday, April 2 - Students who wish to retain their bedspace may be eligible to do so. Please note that students are retaining their bedspace - if a student is in room 1441-A and wants to move to 1441-D, that cannot be done through room retention.
Friday, April 3 - Students who retained on April 2 are eligible to pull in roommates. The roommate(s) room selection ranking numbers must be less than 1800 to be pulled in to spaces in the Cedar Dell or Woodland apartment areas.

For the 2015-2016 academic year, Ivy 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 hall with full-size beds will be Aspen Hall. Every other hall will have extra-long twin beds.
