Briscoe, Constitution and McCorkle Halls (The Suites)
(A more detailed outline of the Suite Draw process is attached to the application. Other questions should be directed to the Director of Residence Life or your Residence Hall Director / Assistant Residence Director.)
Applications for suites will be available in the office for Student Affairs on Monday, March 11th. Applications are due Friday, March 22nd by 5:00 pm. Each resident applying to live in The Suites will need to include their deposit slip with application on Friday, March 22nd. Suites will be awarded using a point system. Notification of suite assignment status will be given no later than Friday, April 5th by 5:00 PM.
Suite placement will be done based on applications with the highest to lowest point totals. Group point totals are calculated by combining the point totals of all group members on the application. Please see the Points System section for further explanation of how individual points are calculated.All placements are done by the Residence Life staff based on the groups top preferences listed on the application. Once suite placements have been assigned and residents have been notified of their placement (no later than Friday,April 5th). A signed housing contract for each resident in the suite must be on file with the office of Residence Life by Friday. April 12th or the members of the suite will forfeit their placement in the suites and be placed back in general Room Draw. PLEASE NOTE: All suites are not alike. The type of furniture varies. 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 Singles and Doubles Room on April 21st, 2013 needs to contact the Director of Residence Life as soon as possible to request housing for Fall 2013.
SUITE REPS: All necessary communication, including group assignment status, is done ONLY with the suite rep. Groups should choose a representative that is responsible and checks her/his campus mail on a daily basis.
VACANCIES: Any vacancies that occur in suite groups prior to the end of the first week of classes, Fall 2013, will be the responsibility of the suite group to fill. Residence Life will give the designated Suite representative one week to identify a replacement. Suite group point totals will be re-figured at the end of that week, with or without a replacement. If the new suite point total is not within the point total range of accepted suites, the entire suite group will be assigned rooms in the traditional residence halls and the first suite group on the waiting list will be given that suite.
In addition, if a suite group falls below the required six members and is allowed to remain in their designated assignment, Student Services will consolidate members of the suite into the lowest number of bedrooms. Members of the suite will be given one week after their initial notification to consolidate - failure to do so will result in the entire suite group being assigned to rooms in the traditional residence halls.
***Intentionally falsifying any information on the Suite application, including knowingly listing a person who will not be a part of your group in the Fall 2013, may result in the application being ruled ineligible and removed from the process.
