INFORMATION SESSION 2015-2016 APARTMENT SELECTION
AM I ELIGIBLE TO LIVE IN AN APARTMENT? Students must have junior or senior standing to apply for an apartment. Juniors: At least 16 credits and/or 4 semesters on campus Seniors: At least 24 credits and/or 6 semesters on campus Only the class standing of students occupying the apartment in the fall will be considered.
APPLICATION PROCESS NO LATE APPLICATIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED!!! Students must submit their online housing agreement before their application will be accepted. All interested students must submit an application, including those applying for a studio (1-person) apartment. Room selection time slots have no bearing on apartment selection. Student conduct records will be checked Ineligible if 50% or more of applicants have been on college housing restriction or above Ineligible if applicants have been involved in multiple incidents together Contact us EARLY if you have concerns about your group’s eligibility
LOTTERY NUMBERS Randomly generated based on class standings in each applicant group and whether or not housing agreements were turned in by 3/2 deadline Groups broken down as follows (from lowest, or best, lottery numbers to highest numbers) : All seniors w/ agreements in on time All seniors w/ 1 or more late agreement Mixed seniors & juniors w/ agreements in on time (Groups comprised of more seniors than juniors will not have priority over groups with an equal number of each or those that have more juniors than seniors. All mixed groups have equal standing.) Mixed seniors & juniors w/ 1 or more late agreement All juniors w/ agreements in on time All juniors w/ 1 or more late agreement Class standing is only considered for the students who will be occupying the apartment during the fall semester. The class standing of students who are away from campus for first semester and are taking the place of students leaving in the spring is not a factor in the determination of lottery numbers.
APARTMENT CONFIGURATIONS Decide what is most important to you Students can apply for more than one configuration (i.e., a 4-person and 2-person apartment) Students can only apply for one type of apartment – cannot be part of multiple groups of the same number Must accept or decline at apartment selection; we will not hold apartments An acceptance voids other applications of which you are a part Apartment options are on ResLife website
