A housing lottery is set up by the Housing Office in order to allow students to request roommates and select rooms. Incoming students are put into an incoming student lottery to allow them to request roommates. On May 15th a lottery will opened to allow students to pick residence hall rooms. However, students can request rooms and roommates before May 15th by submitting a paper application. Students must mutually match in the housing system or they will not be placed together by the Housing Office.
