Yes, there is a two year residency requirement at

Residents can select their rooms on March 5 and 6 from 6 -10 p.m.
in the Baran Great Room.
In order to select your room you will need to complete your housing
contract and roommate preferences online. The housing staff will then be
able to access your contract. You will also want to come prepared with
at least three different housing options that you would like to live in
next year. Space can be limited on-campus and being prepared with more
options will prevent from being caught off guard should your first
choice not be available. You will also want to bring your roommates with
you as all roommates need to be present for selection.
Typically residents can select their room type without restrictions.
There are only two room types that have specific requirements. Parsons
double rooms can only be selected by incoming first-year students.
Burton and Spangler apartments can only be selected by students who are
junior standing, not including running start credits, or over 21 years
When you arrive during your assigned selection time, residence life
staff will be able to tell you which options are available. We recommend
that you come with a list of at least three different living options.
Talk with your future roommates about what room types you prefer and
what you will do if your first option is no longer available.
Additionally, not only will you be able to select a specific room type,
you will also be able to select your specific room.
All of our on campus housing options provide a unique experience for
students. It is important to choose an option that is best for you. When
you select a room consider your experience during your time on-campus.
What did you like about your room? What do you wish was different? What
type of community do you hope to live in next year? Taking time to think
about these questions can help you select the best room and community
for you next year.
If you have a
roommate in mind, you are welcome to sign-up with them. You and your
roommate should sign up during the earliest time slot that you possess.
For example, if roommate one can sign up at 6:20 p.m. on March 5
and roommate two can sign up at 9:40 p.m. on March 5, you should
arrive at roommate one's designated time. If you do not have a roommate in
mind, you may select an open space and will receive a roommate based on

together, you may use the proxy form to sign up your future roommate.
Yes. While we strongly encourage you to come to room selection with
your roommate (unless they are studying abroad, have a class conflict,
etc.) you can serve as a proxy for your roommate. You will need to pick
up a proxy form from the Spangler or Parsons desk prior to selection. In
order to serve as a proxy for another student you will need: the proxy

housing for spring semester by completing the

all students their highest preference, options can be limited during
Before deciding who to live with next year, we recommend you have an
honest conversation with your potential roommate about how you will be
able to live together. You will want to discuss things such as when you
go to bed; when and how you study; how often you like to have guests
over; and the cleanliness of your room. You will also want to complete
your roommate agreements at the beginning of the year. If a conflict
does occur we have many resources, such as your RA, that can assist you
in resolving a conflict. While limited, we do offer room changes during
the 3rd week of each semester; however, room changes are not always

Spangler apartments. Apartment residents are also welcome to choose any
meal plan option.

from. To get the most current information, options, and pricing for meal
plans, you can review our
Meal Plan 101 document.
Since the meal plan options differ, you are able to select a meal
plan that best meets your needs. If you are a person who eats breakfast
and lunch on campus as well as makes frequent trips to the Parson’s
store or Monk’s Bean, a meal plan with more flex cash may be a fit for
you. If you are a person who eats dinners and eats regularly on the
weekends, a meal plan with more board credits may be a fit for you.
