During Phase 1, students will also be able apply for Special Interest Housing, opt into Gender Neutral Housing, and/or create a Room Selection Group. These are optional and do not need to be completed to secure housing for the 2015-2016 academic year.
If you are interested in Special Interest Housing you will be able to submit a Special Interest Housing application during Phase 1.
If you are also registering a room selection group during Phase 1, please be aware that all members of the group must also apply for Special Interest Housing for your applications to be considered. If all members do not apply for Special Interest Housing, the entire group will not be considered for placement into any Special Interest Housing community.
Students accepted into Choices, Explorations, The Green House, The International House, The Residential College and The Senior House will be able participate in Phase 2: Room Selection. Students in these communities will only be able to select spaces allocated to these programs.
Students placed into Fraternity and Sorority Life communities will be contacted by the Office of Residential Life & Housing Services with specific information regarding room selection.
During this process, students may choose to form selection groups and/or select spaces without regard to legal sex by indicating a "gender neutral" preference. Students who choose this option must meet certain requirements intended to maximize the housing options available to all students (i.e. all space in the room/suite must be assigned to students who indicate this preference or the room will default to a legal sex designation). Please review these Frequently Asked Questions prior to selecting this as a preference.
A group may contain 2 to 6 group members. Students who wish to register for room selection as a group should be aware of the following information:
The Group Leader is the person who creates a group for others to join. The Group Leader will be able to select for the group in Phase 2: Room Selection process. If the Group Leader is unable to select a room for the entire group, each individual member may split from the group to select their own space.
Before registering, groups should discuss whom they wish to assume the responsibility of being the group leader. Do not select a group leader who may be studying away for the Fall 2015 term.
The preview of Phase 2 is available until March 27th.
