Briscoe, Constitution and McCorkle Halls (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.
Applications for the traditional and co-ed suites will be available in the office for Student Affairs on Friday, April 1, 2016. Applications are due Friday, April 8, 2016 by 5 pm. Each resident applying to live in The Suites will need to enrolled in fall courses. Suites will be awarded using a point system. Notification of suite assignment status will be given on April 13, 2016 via email.
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. A signed housing contract for each resident in the suite must be on file with the office of Residence Life by Wednesday, April 20, 2016 at 5pm 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 Sunday, April 24, 2016 needs to contact the Director of Residence Life as soon as possible to request housing for Fall 2016.
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 BVU email on a daily basis.
VACANCIES: Any vacancies that occur in suite groups prior to the end of the first week of classes, Fall 2016, 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 2016, may result in the application being ruled ineligible and removed from the process.
