All current residential students are able to select their housing for the upcoming year through an online lottery system. Students are given lottery numbers based on their total number of credits. Students log onto JayWeb at their designated time and select from the list of housing available at that time. Students must also select a roommate in order to choose housing.

A certain number of rooms within each residence hall floor community are dedicated solely to new students. Returning students may select any available room by following the room selection procedures. These procedures are reviewed and revised annually, and traditionally involve selection based on a random lottery system. All room assignments are made without regard to race, color, creed, or national origin.

Rising Junior and Senior students wishing to live in the Apartments or Quads need to register through JayWeb for ILU Selection and select three roommates. Preference for apartments and quads is given based on the class standing of each member of the group, and on the best lottery number for that group. Only Juniors and Seniors are eligible to live in the Apartments or Quads. Groups of less than four students or groups containing ineligible students will not be considered.

For more information on the LLCs available to upperclassmen for the 2017-2018 year, please visit the Living Learning Community page. Follow the above link to complete a housing request for an LLC.

Students wishing to live off campus for any reason must apply and be approved through the Office of Residence Life prior to Housing Selection. Please see the "Off-Campus and Commuter" webpage under "Info for Current Students."
