Housing Selection Process

In order to give students the opportunity to make plans that best fit their needs for the spring semester, students are required to complete a new and revised housing contract, which will reflect the new dates and terms for the spring 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.

  • Monday, November 16th - 2 separate items, the College's Statement of Intention and the Spring 2021 Housing Agreement available to be completed.
  • Monday, November 16th-27th - Students who intend to live on campus will gain access to roommate selection after they complete the Housing Agreement. Complete the housing contract on The Housing Director (THD) – Self-Service.
  • Friday, November 27th - 2 separate items, the College's Statement of Intention and the Spring 2021 Housing Agreement are each due. Students who plan to live on-campus must complete both items by the deadline.
  • Friday, November 27th - Last day to complete the Housing Agreement and select roommates. Late submissions will not be permitted to participate in room selection and will be assigned housing after all other students have selected a room according to whatever housing is available at that time.

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. First-year students do NOT select their own room, first-year students are assigned a room through an automated process. The order for returning student 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. This means that students who select a roommate from a later class year will select a room at a later time than everyone in their own class year.

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

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. Dates below are tentative, finalized dates will be announced later in the fall semester.
