Housing Contract Information

To complete the FHS process, you will sign the Housing Contract in the Black and White Lobby. Please read the Contract in its entirety prior to signing.  

By signing the Contract you are agreeing to:

  • Reside in the residence halls for the entire academic year, and be responsible for all housing fees for the duration of the academic year, whether or not you drop to part-time.
  • Abide by all policies in the Resident’s Guide to Community Living.

 

Important Information

  • There are limited spaces at each building, so it’s first come, first served.
  • Be sure you want to live in housing before you sign up. Once you complete all three steps, you’ll be liable for paying for housing for the entire academic year.
  • You are strongly urged to obtain renters insurance, or verify coverage with your family’s homeowners policy for theft, damage, loss, etc. of your personal belongings.  

 

Triple Lottery Information

Due to high demand, triple rooms will be assigned through a lottery. Any student interested in a triple must sign up for a double space at 1760 on their assigned day and then indicate that they would like to be included in the triple lottery.  Students will be contacted on Friday, April 11 if they have “won” a triple. When one person’s name is drawn, their selected roommates will also be assigned to that triple room, provided all roommates have signed up for housing by completing the 3 steps at the top of this page.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is eligible for Fall Housing Selection?

Any student interested in housing for the 2014-15 academic year is eligible and must participate.

 What do I need to do prior to FHS?

By April 7, pay the $500 non-refundable housing deposit and complete the Continuing Student housing application online.

What do I bring to FHS?

You don’t need to bring anything!  However, if you make your housing deposit on or after April 7, please bring your receipt, as it may not be posted in the system yet. 

What happens at FHS in the Black and White Lobby on my assigned day?

You will sign the Contract Signature Page, agreeing to the terms of the Housing Contract. You can also be placed on the 55th waitlist and enter the triple lottery.  

I know 1760 is for continuing students, but what if I want to live at 55th next year?

Because 55th is primarily for first-year students, there are a limited number of continuing student spaces located in rooms with Resident Advisors (RAs). During FHS, you will need to sign up for a room at 1760, and you can request to be placed on the waitlist for 55th Street. If a space becomes available at 55th Street, you will be notified.

What if I want to room with someone specific next year?

We do our best to honor requests for roommates, but we cannot guarantee your requests will be granted. One roommate turning in the application does not save a space for another roommate. Both (or all three) roommates must complete all the steps to sign up for housing. Spaces are given first come, first served.

1760: Roommate requests must be mutual. Your selected roommate(s) must also submit a housing deposit, complete the application online, and have a signed signature page turned in to the Office of Residence Life. For students interested in a triple at 1760, see the triple lottery information in the section above.
55th Street: Continuing students typically live with RAs at 55th Street. If you know of an RA who you want to live with, both you and the RA must mutually request one another on your housing applications.

What happens if I have paid my deposit but I do not sign up for any housing during FHS?

If you do not sign up for a space between April 8-10, you will lose your housing deposit and not have reserved a space in housing for the 2014-15 academic year.

What happens if I cannot pay the deposit now? 

When you are ready to pay the deposit, please call the Office of Residence Life to check availability.  

What happens if I cannot participate in FHS? 

If you cannot participate in FHS, please contact Residence Life to discuss your individual needs. 

What happens if I sign up for a room and later decide to live off campus?

If you are unsure about housing, DO NOT sign up for a space during FHS. By submitting your $500 non-refundable deposit, application, and Contract Signature Page during FHS,  you are contractually bound to the housing contract and are responsible for the housing charges for the entire academic year.
