Students who want to live on campus or in campus village next school year will have until midnight on Feb. 23 to register for housing.

In order to register, students have to pay a deposit of $100. The amount could be paid either at the Student Accounts office in Russell Hall or at online at the ‘Student Finances and Aid’ tab of MyHaven. However, paying online involves an additional fee of $2.

After paying the deposits, there are designated times for students to choose a lottery number and sign any additional forms. If a student ID number ends with an odd number, the selection frame is on Feb. 24 in PUB room #4 between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. Feb. 25 is for students whose IDs end in an even number and sign ups are at the same time as the day before.

If, for some reason, students miss those two time slots, there will be additional times for them to go between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. on February 26, 27 and 28.

“Lottery numbers on catch up days will be in a higher range than those drawn on regular days,” warn Michael Heck, the Interim Director of Housing Administration and Operations, in an email sent to students.

The process for actually selecting where students will be living varies based on where they want to reside. All selections are done in the order of the individual’s lottery number, or that of their roommate’s.

A person wishing to remain in Campus Village should be at the Lobby at 7 p.m. on March 3, but somebody who wants to move there should be there March 4 between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m.

However, for people who want to stay in either the traditional dorms or Fairview Suites, the times will vary. Remaining residents should sign up at 7 p.m. on March 6 in PUB Room #4 and those desiring to switch buildings should be at the same room on March 7 between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m.

No matter where an individual is staying, however, they are required to bring their Housing & Food Service License Agreement with them. These forms will be given to students at when they draw their lottery number.

If all available rooms are filled during the returning students portion of sign ups, students should come to room selection process with the remaining time slots. When their lottery number is called during open selection times, roommates will be able to choose from the remaining housing options.

It is important to note that students must have a roommate in order to choose a residence. If students do not have a roommate, he or she may only select a Double as a Single, an Efficiency Apartment or a Hall. If a Hall is selected, single students will be assigned a roommate and room later.
