Room Selection Information

Every student planning to live in a residence hall who does not have an assignment (in a suite, apartment or house) or who does not have off-campus approval for the coming academic year must draw a number and choose a room through the general numbers draw and room draw process. Students who are unable to draw a number may designate a proxy to draw a number. The proxy must have the ID (or a photocopy) of the student for whom he or she is drawing.
