Therefore, students are able to pull in other students to be able to meet this requirement as long as have a completed Upper-Level Housing Application.

    • The General Room Selection process involves students selecting their rooms at their assigned time. The selection order is based on a lottery number assigned to students at random based on the number of semesters they have lived with Campus Housing.
