Housing Selection Process for the 2013–2014 School Year
IMPORTANT: CHANGES HAVE BEEN MADE TO THIS PROCESS. PLEASE READ CAREFULLY!
This year the housing process for non-apartment buildings will be done in three stages. The process will proceed as follows:
1. Room Reservation (also known as squatting): You can reserve the room you live in currently, as long as you have a designated roommate to live with you. Suites (Chase or Fulton) can only be reserved one room at a time. Suites and singles in the HUD halls, Ferrin, and Nyland cannot be reserved during this stage. Current room reservation will occur on May 6th with your current Resident Director (RD). You and your roommate(s) must be registered for classes to participate.
2. Reserve and Appeal: After you and your roommate(s) have reserved your current room (i.e. squatted), you may submit an appeal with your RD for another room or floor in your current building. This is in place of room trade. Appeals will be granted at the discretion of the RD and the housing office. This will take place during room reservation on May 6th. You and your roommate(s) must be registered for classes to participate.
3. Lottery: All students who do not participate in room reservation or "reserve and appeal" will be required to attend the lottery night. Each student will be assigned a random number and will sign up, with their roommate, for any open room on campus (except for apartments and living/learning centers). This will occur on May 8th.
*Those who cannot attend the lottery night must assign someone to be their proxy. You will need to fill out a proxy form, available in CSD, by May 6th. The proxy will be authorized by CSD to act on your behalf in picking your room.
In preparation for the lottery night, you need to do the following:
1. Make sure your housing deposit is paid to Student Financial Services.
2. Figure out with whom you are going to room (check out the Gordon Roommate Search 2013 facebook page).
3. Have in mind the halls/rooms you would like to live in next year.
4. REGISTER for your Fall courses.
