Spring 2013 Study Abroad
Students who are abroad or on leave during the spring while the lottery process is taking place must select a room during the spring 2013 lottery process. In order to participate in room selection, these students must designate a proxy to serve in their place during selection. In order to designate a proxy, a student must e-mail Debby Harrison at email@example.com with the proxy's name.
Fall 2013 Study Abroad
Students who are going to be on leave in the fall semester, to study abroad or for any other reasons, should NOT participate in the room selection process in the spring before they go on leave. Instead students who will be on leave in the fall but should be returning to campus in the spring must submit a Spring Housing Application by the application deadline (application link and deadline will be e-mailed during the spring semester).
All students who apply for Spring Housing will be placed on a housing preference waitlist in lottery number order. Every effort is made to accommodate the requests of students with vacancies as well as returning students needing housing. Students returning to campus in the spring should anticipate being required to live on campus. It is not often that many students returning from on-leave will be granted off-campus permission.
Students who are requesting a leave of absence must complete the Online Application for Leave with the Dean of Students Office. In addition to this, all students must also have their on-leave form signed by a Residence Life professional staff member, and a copy of the on-leave form will be kept on file.
An information session for students who will be on leave in the fall will be held during the Lottery process. Further information can be gained by reviewing the Spring Housing Information sheet.
Please Note: During the lottery process, some students may finalize their fall semester plans while others are waiting to be accepted to programs through other schools. If a student secures a room for fall semester and then determines s/he will be away for the fall, the student forfeits any claims to the room, as well as a portion or all of their tuition deposit. A remaining roommate is allowed to retain the room, but will likely be assigned a new roommate for the year.
