Housing will be selected via online lotteries in the  MyHousing Portal . Lottery processes posted on the Overview screen of the MyHousing portal allow students to request roommates and then select a room.  It is recommended that all students enter lifestyle, building, and roommate (if any) preferences, so information is available if reassignment becomes necessary.  However, it is imperative that all students electing not to self-select a room enter preferences, so assignment can be made by Housing and Residence Life.  Preferences will be honored to the extent possible based on available space.  Deadline to enter preferences is on February 2, 2016.  

All returning student assignments will be posted online when completed.  It is important that students review assignment to identify any possible errors and to see changes necessary due to consolidation.    Incoming students will be allowed to select beginning March 1, 2016.
