What does my priority number mean and how is my priority number determined?
Your priority number reflects the order in which you will be served to provide quality service and minimize long lines and waiting. It is determined by: a) your number of semesters in housing, b) your academic credits earned, and c) a random number system.
Is there a way to know what number is currently being served?
For your convenience you may check the priority numbers being served on your assignment day (April 17, 18 or 19) online.
Do all roommates need to be present at Room Selection?
For your convenience, only one person in a group of roommates needs to bring the groups’ Room Selcection Tickets when requesting your room preference. However, if your room preference is unavailable at the time of room signup, it’s important for you to know your roommates’ alternate room preferences or have them present for discussion and decision making purposes.
What are my housing options?
During your assignment time you will be given the opportunity to request your preferred housing type, space permitting. Housing types include: a) 11 residence halls; b) 9 apartment buildings with shared bedrooms (3312 through 3334); and c) 6 apartment buildings with private bedrooms (Harden, Robishaw, Thompson, Liebl, Haevers, and Pamperin halls).
