Although the 2012 fall semester is at the halfway point, students should begin considering their on-campus living options for the 2013-2014 academic year. Housing and Dining’s online room selection process will be available Nov. 5 for returning students.

Students interested in keeping their current room will need to sign up between 10 a.m on Nov. 5 through 4 p.m. on Nov. 6 to guarantee their accommodations.

Those looking to select a new room or to change buildings can do so starting Dec. 3 during the general room selection process. Residents who are not yet prepared to commit to a contract will have another opportunity to participate in room selection activities during spring semester.

All on-campus residents should receive a letter in their campus mailboxes with information about the general room selection.

Students currently living off-campus, but interested in participating, should contact Housing & Dining’s Residential Administration.

New living options will be available beginning in the fall of 2013 with the reopening of Grant Tower D and Gilbert Hall. Both residence halls will feature state-of-the-art amenities.

Housing and Dining cautions that students who are uncertain about their 2013-2014 academic year should refrain from selecting a room until they have made a firm housing decision. The selection of a room is a binding agreement for the entire academic year.
