About Room Draw

The annual Room Draw process is an equitable means by which students choose their room based on class level. Housing is guaranteed for those students who have not yet moderated. However, moderated students participating in Room Draw are not guaranteed a housing assignment, as space is limited. Many of the frequently asked questions about Room Draw, information and applications for special interest housing, and important dates and deadlines are included on this website. Please review this information thoroughly.

Did you know roughly 300 of the 900 UpperCollege students living on campus live in Special Application Housing?  All of these applications are due April 5th at 1PM and are available on this page, scroll down for more info!
