The lottery for dorm halls and Prescott Suite 104 will be on Thursday, May 2. All registration packets due by 1 p.m.
Hallways in Dakin and Merrill require a minimum of 5 students to form a lottery group. Any unfilled rooms on a hall will be assigned to new and continuing students by the housing operations office. Designations are pre-set in the dorms, and groups will need to adhere to those designations.
A designations sheet listing all halls available in the lottery. This will tell you what the hall's noise designation is, if it has a gendered designation, if it's substance free or not, which room the double is, and where the intern rooms are.
A room preference sheet. Your group will indicate room preference on each of your three top ranked halls. Choosing rooms proactively means you won't have to come back to the housing operations office to do this once your group has won a hall. This will also allow students to sign up for individual dorm rooms while ensuring you get the room you want.
Quirks of the Dorm Lottery
Merrill Halls: Short and long sides of a floor are considered separate hallways with seperate designations.
Merrill C-basement: You must have exactly four people in your group to bid for C-basement. This precludes you from bidding for other dorm halls.
Prescott Suite 104: You must have exactly 6 people in your group in order to bid for the suite. Groups bidding for the suite will also have the ability to rank dorm halls on their registration form. Like a dorm hall, the suite has a refrigerator but not a full kitchen. Students living in the suite are required to be on a full meal plan.
Dorm Room Sign-Up for Students Unhoused After the Lottery begins May 2 at 3 p.m. and ends May 10 at 4 p.m. All students not assigned to a mod must sign up for a dorm room in the HOO. Dorm rooms will be given out on a first-come, first-served basis. Failure to sign up for a space prior to leaving campus will result in a HOO-assigned room. Students can only get on the mod wait list once they have an assigned room on campus.
