All undergraduate students who are in good standing with the College and have an "R" for their D-Plan for the term in which they are seeking housing are eligible for on campus housing. On campus housing includes residence halls, affinity programs and college or privately-owned GLOS facilities.
Students taking a fifth year to complete a Thayer BE degree are not eligible for on-campus housing in their fifth year.
Students seeking readmission for the Fall 2013 term may apply for fall housing, but are not eligible to participate in Room Draw or have a room held on their behalf through the proxy process at Room Draw. For the fall term, students seeking readmission who want on-campus housing must submit the Readmit Housing Application by June 1, 2013 wait list deadline. Students seeking readmission who have medical and/or disability-related needs that should be considered for housing based on those needs should submit their application and documentation by April 18, 2013. All on time readmit and wait list applications will be processed in priority number order, with first year and sophomore status students guaranteed housing if readmitted. Students seeking readmission who want to petition to participate in Room Draw should contact Rachael Class-Giguere, Director of Undergraduate Housing.
The deadline for students to change their D-Plan for the fall term 2013 is April 29, 2013.
Barring exceptions approved by the Undergraduate Housing Office, your housing assignment in a residence hall for the fall or winter term automatically carries over for the next term if your D-plan for the following term is an "R" at the time of that term's housing application deadline. Housing assignments do not automatically carry over from spring to summer or summer to fall or for those living in Affinity or GLOS housing.
4th Floor Gile, 4th floor North Mass and the Ledyard Apartments are substance-free housing options for upperclass students. If you are looking for a community where all residents agree that they and their guests will not use or possess alcohol, tobacco products, or illicit drugs in the building, the floors in Gile or Ledyard Apartments may be for you! These locations are subject to change for the 2013-2014 academic year depending on demand.
Gender Neutral housing refers to rooms where the specific gender of the roommates is not taken into consideration when the room is selected through one of the Room Draw processes. Rooms designated as gender neutral do not have to be selected by mixed-gender groups, but that option is available. In addition to the Maxwell/Channing Cox, & Ledyard apartments, selected suites in East Wheelock and the suites in Fahey/McLane and McLaughlin, all of the Lodge and Mid Massachusetts Hall and the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th floors of New Hampshire hall are also gender-neutral.
The Ledyard Apartments are located at 19 East Wheelock Street and while part of the East Wheelock Cluster, are not part of the program, so the East Wheelock application is not necessary to apply. Each apartment houses 4 students within a double and two singles (one apartment is for three people with a double and a single). Each unit has a living room and kitchen. All residents must be on a meal plan, just as in the Maxwell/Channing Cox Apartments. The Ledyard Apartments is a substance free community. Rent in the Ledyard Apartments, as in Maxwell/Channing Cox, is $2884 per term vs. $2684 in the residence halls for 2013-2014.
When talking with your friends and determining with whom you want to live next year, we suggest that you talk about your D-plans. If you and your chosen roommate have different D-plans in the winter or spring, you may want to talk to other friends to arrange to pull someone into the vacancy. Another option is to choose a roommate who has the same D-plan pattern as you so that your room will be empty for new residents when you go on leave or an FSP. For more advice or suggestions on choosing a roommate, speak with your Community Director (CD), Undergraduate Advisor (UGA) or a member of the Undergraduate Housing Office staff.
Members of the class of 2016 are guaranteed on-campus housing for their sophomore year provided they are enrolled in classes in Hanover (have a D-Plan of “R”) and participate in room draw/apply by the appropriate deadline. While all 16’s who participate in Room Draw may not receive an assignment at that event, those who submit a waitlist application by June 1, 2013 are still guaranteed housing for the fall term.
