Top 10 Things About Spring Room Draw

  1. HAVERTIME DOES NOT APPLY: In order to make the Room Draw process go smoothly and in fairness to all, deadlines and dates are firm and start times prompt.
  2. BE ELIGIBLE: Clear up Library and financial obligations by 5pm, Friday, March 20.
  3. KNOW YOUR CLASS YEAR FOR PURPOSES OF ROOM DRAW! If not sure, check with Registrar’s Office or if not sure of PE Requirement completion, check with the Athletics Dept.
  4. HOUSING WILL HAPPEN: All eligible students who want campus housing and follow all the steps and meet all the deadlines will get housing in the fall - either via Spring Room Draw in April or via the Deferred Housing Assignment process in the summer.
  5. KNOWLEDGE IS POWER: you, too, can have it! Read the Guidelines and follow the instructions, talk to people who've been through it, fill out the apps, meet the deadlines, sign up for the Rounds. Not sure of something? Ask the Residential Life Committee!
  6. BE PREPARED: Learn about the different housing options, think about what type of room you’d like to try for- AND have back up plans!
  7. PROXY UP: Not on campus or can't attend the necessary Room Draw events - currently studying abroad, off campus at a concert, or have another obligation? Name a proxy to act on your behalf!
  8. LEAVE NO FRIEND BEHIND: We're all in this together. Pull friends in, let friends know about open spaces, and think of many different housing options with your friends to make your housing work.
  9. RESPONSIBILITY: It's your responsibility to read the 2015 Spring Room Draw Guidelines in its entirety, understand, and abide by all policies and procedures in the Guidelines and the Honor Code.
  10. SIGNATURES: You may only sign your own name on all applications and forms
