Anatomy of a Room Draw

How to apply for and choose a space...

All available spaces of all sizes will be offered in one draw.

  • There are 3 parts to the on-line draw:
    • An applications submission period (not 1st come-1st serve)
    • Then Timeslots are awarded
    • Participants choose spaces based on their Timeslot
  • Students may submit applications as individuals or in a group - but may only be in one group.  There is no preference given based on the size of the group when awarding Timeslots.
  • Students should submit an application with the members of the largest sized space for which they would like to be considered.  Follow the Roommate Group process- it is VERY IMPORTANT that every member of a group sign-on to their portal and join the group.
  • Whenever possible, applications should be submitted at the start of a draw's application submission period so should there be any challenges they can be dealt with in a timely manner. Please remember that the application part of these processes are not a first-come/first-serve process.
  • Pay close attention to the appropriate deadlines as noted on the Fall Housingcalendar.  Once a deadline passes students cannot amend or submit new applications or go back to choose a space in a draw which has closed.
