Room Selection 2016

Room Selection News


The Usen Castle will be closing at the end of the Fall 2016 semester.  Anyone who selects housing in the Castle through room selection should be aware that this housing assignment will only be for the Fall 2016 semester.  At the end of the Fall semester DCL will work with students to place them in new assignments for the Spring 2017 semester.  Assignments will vary based on availability but many students will live in Ziv, the Village, and rooms in East. Additional spaces in other areas may become available, these spaces will also be offered as options.  DCL has made arrangements with Facilities Management that will allow students living in the Castle for the fall one of two options. Option 1: You can leave all items in your room and move to your new space when you return in January. (All items must be removed from the Castle by January 13th 2017) Option 2: You can take all of your items home with you when you depart in December and move into your new room when you return in January. DCL will work with each student to ensure a plan is in place for their relocation in the Spring 2017.


Room Selection Info Session - Tuesday 3/29 at 12pm in the International Lounge in Usdan.  Come get all your burning room selection questions answered!


Upperclass room selection will now choose different housing configurations on different days.  One challenge students had in the past was adjusting their roommate group when one type of housing ran out.  With this change when one configuration of housing is gone there is time overnight to adjust your roommate group and be ready the next day.  Upperclass students will pick housing on these days:

April 11 - 6-person Ridgewoods and 6-person Foster Mods

April 12 - 4-person Ridgewoods and 4-person Foster Mods

April 13 - Efficiency, 3-person and 5-person Charles River apartments

April 14 - Ziv suites and 2-person Charles River apartments

All selections will remain open until 5:00pm on April 15 or until there is no more housing available in that category.


Room Selection numbers are not transferable.  If a student uses their number to pull in a suite or apartment and then withdraws from housing for any reason the entire suite/apartment will be removed from housing.  Please contact Community Living if you have any questions about this policy.
