About the Assignment Process
The housing assignment processes for winter and spring terms are identical. For these two terms, you must apply using the housing application on BannerStudent. There is usually no waitlist, and there is no room draw process for these terms. Housing assignments for the fall or winter term automatically carry over to the next term if your D-plan is an “R” at the time of that term’s housing application deadline.
Because the majority of students remain in the same room for the consecutive terms in which they are enrolled, most of the spaces that become available for winter and spring assignments are those vacated by students who leave campus after fall or winter term. As a result, the majority of applicants will fill individual vacancies in double or triple rooms. Though single rooms are the most commonly requested room type, normally only enough singles become available to honor approximately 25 to 30 percent of the requests. This means that of the juniors who apply, the greater part of the class will be housed in doubles or triples.
