Fall Housing Scenarios

I'm a rising senior/junior and my first choice is a single, pretty much anywhere on campus.

  • Unless you apply and are accepted to an LLC, you will be choosing a room within the residence halls that make up your House Community.
  • You do not need to create a roommate group as your first choice is a single, you are flexible as to the location, and singles are generally available in the fall for all seniors and juniors who want them.
  • You need to register for Room Draw by Monday, May 2nd.  You will receive your time-slot the day prior to your House's selection day and at that time you log-in to BannerStudent and select your room!

I want to apply to an LLC; where is the application and when do I have to have it done?

  • The applications for all the LLC programs are within the Room Draw Registration application on BannerStudent.  The LLC portion is due by Wednesday, April 6th and you will find out if you are accepted by April 29th.

I am accepted to an LLC and will go through LLC Room Draw. How does that work?

  • When you register on BannerStudent be sure to answer "yes" to the LLC question. If you are part of a roommate group be sure all your members have applied to the LLC, completed their registration and that the student with the best priority number creates the roommate group. You will get your time slot on Tuesday, May 3rd for LLC Room Draw on Wednesday, May 4th.
  • If you are part of a group and you are able to get the room type you want when your group leader's slot comes up, then you and your roommates will all be housed and you'll be set!  Please note that all members of your roommate group must be accepted to the program in order to participate in LLC Room Draw.
  • If you are part of a group and not able to get the type of room you want, you can dissolve the group and either regroup for another room type, or try for an individual space in the program. You will all have your own time slot so you can use it if necessary, or if you get housed through a roommate group, you simply don't use the slot you were originally assigned.
  • In the event you do not select a room at the LLC Room Draw you will be assigned to a vacancy in the program and emailed on Thursday, May 5th with the details.

I want a double with my friend but they are a member of a different House.  How can we live together?

  • If you apply and are accepted to the same LLC you can create a roommate group and go through the LLC Room Draw together.
  • If you have two other friends and want to try for the senior apartments, you can create a roommate group of 4 by May 2nd go through the Senior Apartment Room Draw on May 5th.
  • If you are members of the same Greek/Co-ed Organization you can try to live in your House together (rosters due April 18th).

My first choice is a double with my friend who is in the same House as me. My priority number is the better one so I want to pull in my friend.

  • You need to register for Room Draw by Monday, May 2nd and create a roommate group.
  • Forward your friend (make sure they have time to register by May 2nd) the "Roommate Group" confirmation page so they can register and join your group.
  • You will receive your time-slot (your roommate will receive a slot as well, but won't use it if they are being pulled in by you).
  • When your time-slot begins, log into BannerStudent and select the double for you and your friend! Both of you will be housed for the fall!

My first choice is a single in my House, but only if it's one of a few singles I want. If I can't get one of those singles, then I want to live with my friend in a double. My priority number is better than my friend's and we are both part of the same House.

  • Our advice is to have your preferred roommate with you when your time-slot occurs so they are fully aware of what you are choosing and how it impacts their housing.
  • OPTION 1: Register by Monday, May 2nd  and create a roommate group.
    • Forward your friend (make sure they have time to register by the May 2nd deadline) the "Roommate Group" confirmation page so they can register and join your group.
    • You will receive your time-slot (your roommate will receive a slot as well, but won't use it if they are pulled in by you).
    • If one of the select singles you want is available and you want to take it, go back and dissolve your roommate group, then go and select your single.
    • Your friend will then use their timeslot to select a room for the fall, or create/join a new roommate group with someone else and chose a room.
  • OPTION 2: Register by Monday, May 2nd.  If the single you want is available when your time-slot opens, select the room.
    • If there is no single open you want to choose, create a roommate group.
    • You will want to have your friend's ID number to add them to your group immediately (remember, your friend must already be registered for Room Draw to be added as a roommate).
    • Once the roommate group is created, you can select a double for the two of you and you will both have fall housing!

My first choice is a double with a friend of mine who is in the same House, and it's my friend who has the better priority number.

  • Make sure your friend registers by the May 2nd deadline and creates a roommate group, and sends you the roommate group name and password.
  • You will then register and use the name and password to join your friend's roommate group.
  • Both you and your friend will be sent time-slots. Since you are being pulled in by your friend, you won't use your time-slot.
  • When your friend's time-slot opens up, he/she will choose the double for the two of you to live in next fall. You will both be housed through your friend's time-slot.

I am doing an internship and am not on-campus this spring. I'm a rising senior and want a single in my House.

  • If you have access to BannerStudent, you can select your room from where ever you are!
  • You need to register for Room Draw by Monday, May 2nd.  You will get an email the day before your House's Room Draw with your time-slot.
  • If you cannot access BannerStudent, you can contact the Housing Office and ask us to be your proxy by 9am on the day of your Room Draw.
  • You can also ask a friend to be your proxy by sending your friend an e-mail with your ID number and the statement that you want him/her to choose for you. Your friend will then come to the Housing Office 15 minutes before your time slot and get set up to choose your room.

My friend and I are members of two different House Communities, can we still be roommates?

  • If you both apply to the same LLCs and are both accepted, you can create a roommate group together for LLC Room Draw.  Whoever has the best number will create the group and the other will join the group.  The LLC application deadline is April 6th and you will want to finalize your roommate group once you know if you are both accepted, which will happen by April 29th.
  • If you have two other friends and you want to try for a senior apartment (Maxwell, Channing Cox, Ledyard or North Park) you can register for Room Draw by May 2nd indicating that is your first choice process and whoever has the best number will create the roommate group and all must join the group by Apartment Room Draw on May 5th.
  • It is not possible for you to live in your House Community with someone from another House Community, or for you to be the roommate of someone in their House.

I'm off-campus this spring and want to live with two friends who are on-campus. My priority number is better than my friends' and we are all part of the same House.

  • If you have access to BannerStudent, you can select your room from where ever you are!
  • Make sure the residence halls in your community have triple rooms; if not you will need to revise your plans.
  • Register for Room Draw by Monday, May 2nd and create a roommate group.
  • Forward your friends (make sure they have time to register by Monday, May 2nd) the "Roommate Group" confirmation page so they can each register and join your group.
  • You will receive your time-slot (your roommates' will each receive a slot as well, but won't use them if they are pulled in by you).
  • When your time-slot begins, log into BannerStudent and select the triple for you and your friends! All three of you will be housed for the fall!
