Housing Selection Tutorials & Information
Residential Life offers several tools to help you with the Housing Selection process. Check out our video tutorials and/or attend an information session to get the most out of this process.
Buying/Selling Selection Times or Eligibility
Students who attempt to, or who buy/sell their selection time or eligibility, including offering to buy/sell the opportunity to be pulled-in to a room, are in violation of The On-Campus Housing Contract and may have their housing selection eligibility and/or on-campus housing revoked or changed.
Individuals who have knowledge of these types of transactions can report this activity to email@example.com.
Earned credit hours determines the order in which students select a room. Seniors select first, followed by juniors, then sophomores, and then freshmen. When more than one student has the same number of credit hours, students select rooms in random order. Class standing by credits is as follows:
- Seniors - 86+ credits
- Juniors - 54-85 credits
- Sophomores - 24-53 credits
- Freshmen - 0-23 credits
Class standing is determined by the number of earned credits at the start of the Spring 2014 semester (recorded by the Registrar).
Priority in Housing – University Scholars and the incoming Residence Hall Association (RHA) Executive Board receive priority in housing selection based on their academic status/ contributions to our residential communities. University Scholars priority has been given at least 15 years – RHA priority has been given the last 5 years.

Housing Selection Tips!
- Students can choose roommates of any class standing. As long as the student(s) is the same sex and eligible for housing selection, students can choose to live with whoever they want regardless of class standing. For example, a student with senior class status can choose a sophomore as a roommate.
- The person with the earliest selection time should pick for the group. Students picking with a roommate(s) should have the person with the earliest selection time enter the system to pick assignments for the group.
- Students unable to go online at their scheduled time have two options.
