Multi-Year Room Selection

Appointment Request: March 7-March 27
Appointments Post: March 28
Room Selection: March 31-April 14 at 1:59pm

This year, we have combined all multi-year housing options into the Multi-Year Room Selection process. The following assignment types will be available in this process:

North Apartments
The North Apartments offer students a more independent living style and are a short walk to the center of campus! Each apartment consists of four single rooms and offers residents a kitchen, two bathrooms, a living room, and air conditioning. Individual students and groups of up to four people are able to select into the North Apartments.

Sylvan Suites
Individual students and groups of up to eight people can select into a suite. Suites are available in Cashin and Brown Halls in the Sylvan Residential Area. Suites include single, deluxe single and double rooms with a lounge and bathroom to share. Rates for this area are lower than the North Apartments.

Single and Shared Rooms
All single, double, triple and quad rooms, including available spaces in SophoMORE experience halls, will be available to select in Multi-Year Room Selection. Spaces in Defined Residential Communities and CHCRC spaces will not be available in this process.

Students who have secured an on campus assignment and request and appointment for the Summer Apartment and Room Change process will receive the earliest appointments to select from vacant spaces across campus. Cancelled spaces will be made available for students to select as part of this process. Commonwealth Honors College students will receive a separate appointment to select from newly available CHCRC spaces and Sophomore students will receive an appointment to search for available spaces in SophoMORE communities.
