Singles Room Draw
Individuals choosing to live in a designated single on campus should attend Hall-a-palooza (the singles/double room selection process) on Sunday, April 24, 2016 in Dows Conference Center. The process will begin at 6pm and should conclude by 9pm. The process goes from the highest to lowest calculated point totals until all point groups have been called.
Single rooms are can exist in all residence halls with the exception of Constitution, Briscoe, and McCorkle (the Suites). However, single room availability is limited and varies in size and furnishings in each residence hall. The selection of single rooms will be conducted based on the points system, 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 Sunday, April 24, 2016 needs to contact the Director of Residence Life as soon as possible to request housing for Fall 2016.
Room cost for medium/modified single occupancy rooms in Grand, Liberty, and White Halls for the 2016-2017 academic year is $274. This is an extra fee for the academic year along with standard room and board rates.
Super single rooms are available in all of the residence halls with the exception of the Suites during Hall-a-palooza (the singles/double room selection process) on Sunday, April 24, 2016 in Dows Conference Center. 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 for the 2016-2017 academic year is $548. This is an extra fee for the academic year along with standard room and board rates.
Although the option for super single rooms are not present during the Room Draw process for the Suites, residents in these buildings as well as all other residence halls could be given this option once the 2016-2017 academic year begins and they lose their existing roommate. This option is often commonly called "buying out" the additional spot of a former roommate. If an additional roommate is not added and the resident does not "buy out" the additional spot, then a roommate will be placed in the space or a consolidation will be made.
Please note that singles will be limited for the 2016-2017 academic school year. If your room draw number is called and there are no singles available, you will have the option of signing up on the single wait list during Hall-a-Palooza and will need to be assigned to a double room until your name comes up on the wait list.
