Housing Selection Process

The housing selection process for the 2020-2021 academic year has been delayed. Students will be notified via email once specific dates have been determined.

In order to de-densify the residence halls, the College will limit occupancy to two persons per room. We will also establish isolation and quarantine spaces for students. Together, these measures will likely require that we secure additional housing off-campus.

In order to give students the opportunity to make plans that best fit their needs for the fall semester, students are required to complete a new and revised housing contract, which will reflect the new dates for the fall semester. Students will receive a notice to complete the next steps in the housing selection process from the Office of Residence Life and Housing according to the schedule below.

  • Saturday, July 11 - Course schedule information will be available to students. Students will also receive a Preliminary Fall 2020 Guide, which will contain information about academics and student life, as well as the request for intentions about the fall semester.
  • Sunday, July 19 - Student Acknowledgment and Statement of Intention due back to the College. Complete the Student Acknowledgment and Election of Options Form.
  • Tuesday, July 21 - Students who intend to live on campus will gain access to the system to complete the housing contract. Complete the housing contract on The Housing Director (THD) – Self-Service.
  • Thursday, July 23 - Housing Agreement is due.

All aspects of the housing selection process will be conducted in online formats including roommate matching.

HSP is how current returning students select their rooms for the following academic year. The order for room selection depends upon only 2 things:

1) class year

2) a randomly generated priority number

Those numbers determine when students pick a room within their class year. When grouped with a roommate(s), the combined average of each student's number is used to determine the order of selection for all roommate groups.

Please follow the instructions below for navigating the housing selection process.

View the following video tutorials for demonstrations of each step of the online housing selection process.

For groups that include students participating in a single semester study abroad or away program, to request a "swap" of room assignments between students who will be away from campus during opposite semesters, please e-mail our office directly to make that request after your group has selected a room. The request e-mail should include the hall and room number selected by the group and CC: all of the students involved for both semesters.

IMPORTANT DATES

Specific requests for room accommodations related to conditions covered through the Americans with Disabilities Act should be submitted directly to the Office of Accessibility Services.

Housing Selection Process dates. Group room selection times will be determined and sent out in the days prior to room selection. Students should expect selection times to take place during the academic day. Only one person from each group needs to complete the room selection and the system is compatible with most mobile devices. We recommend accessing The Housing Director-Self-Service from the device you plan to use to select a room prior to your group's selection time.
