Housing Selection

Residential Services | December 7, 2015

Housing Selection 2016-2017 is here!

Housing Selection Opens Today!

StarRez, where you will sign up for housing selection, has opened today. The portal will be open for signup through February 9th. It does not matter if you register first or last, you will still have the same opportunities to select housing as everyone else. This year you are able to sign up for the process and choose your groups any time between today and February 9th.

Housing Selection Process

Here are some key items to keep in mind, visit our website to read about all of the changes.

  1. We use an online selection process. This process to select housing will be conducted over a 1 week period (February 15-19th).
  2. You will form groups prior to housing selection and identify them in the system. Housing will be prioritized by space size and average group class standing (total number of credits divide by group size).
  3. Prioritizing by space size means that through housing selection we will be starting with the suite/apartment sizes that have the most students and working our way down to the spaces that are for only 1 or 2 students.
  4. Within each selection time, groups will be ordered by average class standing. This mean that class year is taken into account for all group members. Class standing will be determined by earned and currently attempted credits.
  5. We will be hosting Special Interest Housing on a floor of Founders Hall for students who would like to live in an upperclass wellness community. On the housing selection sign up you may indicate if you are interested. If there is sufficient interest, you will be able to bypass the housing selection process.

We will have a number of opportunities to learn more about the process. Please visit our website or an info session/table to learn more about housing selection.
