In response to student requests for substance-free and quiet housing reported by the 2012 Social Life Task Force study, the College will be launching a new housing option for the 2013-14 academic year. Substance-free mean that all residents agree to keep the influences of alcohol, tobacco and illegal drugs out of their community. This means no alcohol is permitted in the community and students may not return to the community intoxicated or smelling of alcohol, tobacco, etc. In addition, due to the location of the house, the residence will maintain a quiet atmosphere with no loud parties permitted. For the 2013-14 academic year, Jewett House has been selected as the Substance-Free/Quiet house location. Should there be more interest than can be accommodated at a single location, other small house in the same area may be considered.
Bed assignments will be made by the selection committee. Students may request a double by listing the name of another student who is also submitting an application. Substance-Free/Quiet housing does not guarantee a single-room assignment. While there are some single rooms in Jewett House, double room assignments are the norm. Students who designate a roommate will be given greater consideration in the selection process.
Students who apply for the substance-free house are committing to the program and should a space be assigned may not participate in any further fall term room draw processes (i.e. SuperBlock or Off-Campus Housing applications, on-line or live Sophomore draws, etc.). Should they choose to withdraw from the House they will be housed by the Residential Systems Coordinator during the Summer Housing process. Students who are not offered a spot on the roster may participate in subsequent fall term housing processes.
Applications The deadline has been extened and applications are still being accepted.
Selection Committee Decisions will be made and Students Notified prior to other fall term housing processes.
