How the Lottery Will Work

Once you have paid your $50 deposit, you will receive an email containing your lottery number and your class status.  The lottery numbers are randomly generated by the computer. If you have not reserved your current room, you will attend the lottery at your class status time (date and time listed above).

The lottery will start with number 1. When your number is called, you can then make your room assignment. Please know that if your number is called and you are not there, we have to proceed with the next number. Please make sure your roommate(s) are present also.

If you are unable to attend the lottery, please see Denise Dyer, manager of housing, as soon as possible for an absentee form. Please make sure that you come to the lottery with more than 1 option in case your 1st option is not available.

ALL students must pay a non-refundable $50 room reservation fee before participating in the housing selection process. This deposit will be applied toward Fall 2014 fees and is not an extra charge. You will not be able to pay during the lottery. Deadline to pay room reservation fee is 3 p.m. on Friday, March 28.
