Current First-Year, Sophomore, and Junior residents

As long as you are:

Currently a first-year, sophomore, or junior class resident AND currently residing in university housing during the months of March and April of the Spring 2014 semester then you are automatically eligible to participate in Room Selection.  You can participate in any one phase of Room Selection that is available to you (see the Timeline for specific dates and deadlines.)  However, once you select a housing assignment through any one phase of Room Selection, you will no longer be eligible to participate in any later phases.

Your class standing for Room Selection is based on the class level listed in Student Information Online.  To view this in SIO, go to Academic Info, Enrollment Status, and then Class Level (see screen shot below.)  If the class level listed is something other than what you expected it to be, please talk to your academic advisor or department.  Housing Services is not able to change class levels.  The class level determines when you'll be able to select a room during Online General Room Selection so it's important that this be correct!

First-year residents and retention

Due to the majority of first-year students living in designated first-year living areas, current first-year residents are not eligible to retain their current housing assignments, regardless of building location.  This includes first-year students who are assigned to traditionally upper-class buildings or rooms.  This decision was based on the recommendations of the Room Assignments Task force - a group comprised of students, Housefellows and staff - in an effort to create a level playing field for all current first-year students and was first implemented during Room Selection 2010.
