Current Seniors and Fifth-Year Residents

Current seniors (class 4) and fifth-year seniors (class 5) are not automatically eligible for Room Selection.

However, current seniors or fifth-year residents who will continue to be registered as full-time undergraduate students for the Fall 2017 semester and wish to reside in university housing should send a request to prior to February 1, 2017, explaining why housing is needed for an additional academic year.

Requests are reviewed on a case-by-case basis and residents will be notified via email regarding about Room Selection eligibility. Priority is given to those students who will be here for the entire academic year.

Residents who are approved can participate in any phase of Room Selection for which they are eligible. Approved seniors/fifth-years who participate in General Room Selection will be part of the current Junior+ class pool.

Notice to seniors graduating in December:

Any resident who is graduating in December and requests to cancel his/her agreement for the Spring semester will be responsible for paying a $200 Housing Cancellation Fee, which will be billed to their Fall semester student account at the time of cancellation.  Students who need to have transcripts released quickly following December graduation to make arrangements to pay this fee as soon as it is assessed.
