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 or received an apartment or house assignment, 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 one option in case your first option is not available.


Room Reservation Fee
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 2015 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 Thursday, April 9.

Roommates and Reservations

Students must reserve a room with a roommate (if not living in a single room). Private (double rooms) will not be offered for the Fall 2015 semester (no exceptions).

Reserving Current Room (does not apply to rising sophomores currently living in Avery or Virginia)
You can reserve your current room from Tuesday, March 24 - Wednesday, March 25 from 9:30 - 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 - 4:30 p.m. ONLY (see Denise Dyer, manager of housing).
