If you have completed the application successfully, you will receive an email on or around March 3 from the Residential Life Office with your Housing Lottery selection time.

If you have created a roommate group, the individual with the earliest lottery slot can select a townhome or suite for their roommate group and will be asked if they would like to assign their entire roommate group to that particular townhome or suite.

If you have not created a roommate group, when your housing lottery time becomes available, you will be able to select from any available bed and would be living with people in your suite or townhome at random.
