Frequently Asked Questions

  •  

    What is the process for selecting a new room?

    Students will have a list of available rooms to choose from. When their lottery number is active, students will proceed with their selection based on available spaces.

  •  

    How are lottery numbers determined?

    Lottery numbers are based on your class standing and your GPA.

  •  

    Can I reserve a private room (a room meant for two people, but you are paying extra to keep the room to yourself)?

    At this time, we cannot accommodate private rooms. If space becomes available, we will open the option for private rooms after housing selection is over.

  •  

    I am struggling to find a roommate to go with me to a new room. What do I do?

    If you are struggling to find a roommate, please reach out to Director of Residence Life Erin Smith at smithe@lmc.edu. The lottery process will require spaces be filled to capacity. A roommate may be assigned if one is not previously selected.
