Class Year Expectations

Class Year Expectations

The Room Selection and Lottery process is designed to offer more increasing levels of independence and autonomy as students move through their four years.  Several processes are seniority-based.  Different options are recommended for each class year based on connections to other students, interests and available room configurations.  We encourage you to review the information specific to your class year so you can enter the process prepared and with reasonable expectations.

Information for Rising Seniors

Rising seniors have the most options related to their housing. Seniors are also the only students eligible to be released to live off-campus and have priority to select college owned off-campus properties.

Information for Rising Juniors

Many rising juniors plan to study abroad in the Fall or live as part of a Living Group or Fraternity/Sorority. For those that are participating in the General Lottery, there are still important considerations to make.
