To reserve a room for the 2013-2014 academic year, all currently enrolled students go through the room draw process. Each student must have a receipt for their $25.00 Room Reservation Deposit from the Business Office in order to sign up for a room. No cash or checks will be accepted as rooms are being selected; only receipts from the Business Office will be accepted. All deadlines within the room draw process will be strictly enforced!
Tips to help make room draw a success for you!
Deciding where to live is an important part of planning for the upcoming year. A positive living experience is critical to your success as a student. For these reasons, the Office of Residence Life strongly encourages you to take some time to look over the information included on this site thoroughly. Only by understanding the processes completely can you ensure the best-possible housing assignment for next year. Here are a few tips to help you prepare for Room Draw 2013.
1. Read ALL of the information included on this site. Although at this very moment you may only intend to participate in one or two specific parts of room draw, plans do change. Be prepared for last-minute developments.
2. Put all deadlines in your planner system and mark them boldly! Put reminders to yourself a couple days in advance so you remember when things are due. Deadlines in this process are adhered to strictly so don't wait until the last minute to take care of details.
3. Pay your room deposit fee and keep the receipt in a very safe place. Know where you keep it! You can get a copy of your receipt from the Business Office, which is only open Monday - Friday 7:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Since many of our room selection times occur on the weekends, you will not be able to get a copy last minute.
4. If you are applying for a suite, be sure to select a responsible person to serve as your contact person. Information regarding assignment and room selection times from our office will be communicated only through your contact person. Therefore, it is critical that this person be VERY prompt and responsible. They should be someone who checks their campus mail and email every day!
5. Attend the floor meetings with your Resident Assistant. These meetings are designed to answer any questions you have about the Room Draw process.
6. If you don't understand any part of this process, be sure to ask the Director of Residence Life & Housing, your Residence Hall Director, Assistant Residence Director, or a Resident Assistant. Our staff is here to help you through the Room Draw process.
