Re-Contracting may have just ended, but we are not finished yet! You have already signed your housing contract, now it is time to think about WHERE you are going to be living next year.
Today the Office of Residence Life sends out Room Selection Priority Numbers. This number includes both the date and time at which you can select your desired room for the 2017-18 academic year during the Room Selection Event on March 29th & 30th in the University Union Phoenix Rooms.
Many students wonder “What do I do with my priority number?”, “How was it assigned to me?”, or “My desired roommate has a higher priority number, what do I do?”, well you have questions and we have answers! Here is a quick breakdown of what your Priority Number means and how to use it:
Your priority number is assigned to you based on three criteria: 1) the number of semesters you have lived in housing, 2) credits earned, and 3) a random number system to provide quality service and minimize long lines and waiting. When arriving at the Room Selection Event all students MUST BRING with them their Room Selection Ticket which contains your priority number, the date, and time you were assigned to choose you room.
If one of your desired roommates has an earlier selection time, only one person has to show up at that time with ALL of your desired roommates’ room selection tickets to select the room. If not all roommates will be present at Room Selection (which is just fine) discuss ahead of time a second or third room option as your first may not be available.
If none of your desired roommates are available at the earliest room selection time please come to the Office of Residence Life Community Center between 9am and 4pm (M-F) by March 28th. There is a form that you will need to complete to allow Residence Life Staff to assign you to one of your desired housing options for 2017-18 based on availability.
With any specific questions regarding Priority Numbers, Room Selection Tickets, or the Room Selection Event, please contact the Office of Residence Life by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (920) 465-2040.
