Singles Room Draw
Individuals choosing to live in a designated single on campus can be selected during Singles Room Draw starting at 5:00 pm on Sunday, April 21st, 2013 in Dows Conference Center. Single rooms are available in all residence halls with the exception of Constitution, Briscoe, and McCorkle (the Suites) and Pierce Hall. However, single room availability is limited and varies in size and furnishings in each residence hall. Single rooms will be given out based on class standing (starting with Seniors) and to students with the highest to lowest calculated point totals. Individuals currently living in single rooms will not be given additional priority in selection.
Any student (with the exception of any incoming first-year or transfer student) who does not participate in the Room Draw process by the completion of Single and Doubles Room Draw on April 21st, 2013 needs to contact the Director of Residence Life as soon as possible to request housing for Fall 2013.
Room cost for single occupancy rooms in Grand, Liberty, and White Halls for the 2013-2014 academic year will be an additional $250.00 per academic year. These rooms are considered modified or medium single spaces. Room cost for single occupancy in a double occupancy room for the 2013-2014 academic year will be an additional $500.00, however this option is only present once the academic year begins and is subject to availability.
New for the 2013-2014 academic year, all rooms in Swope Hall will be singles. Swope Hall offers three types of single rooms.
Structural Single room- These rooms are located in the center of the Swope Hall and are small because they are designed for just one person. These rooms include a standard twin size bed (not a twin xl as located in all other rooms across campus). These rooms do not cost anymore extra than the standard room and board rates at the University.
Medium/Modified Single room- Medium/Modified single rooms were built in Grand, Liberty, Swope, and White Halls. These rooms are popular because they are larger than a structural single room but smaller and cheaper than a double room. The cost for this room is $125 extra for an academic year along with standard room and board rates.
Super Single room- Super single rooms are rooms that are traditionally designed for two people but only house one person (i.e. a standard double room that most people live in). These rooms are the largest single option available on campus. Although the room is large all of the furniture must stay in the room. The cost for this room is $500 extra for an academic year along with standard room and board rates.
