Housing Selection Numbers
Housing Selection Process
Students who no longer need on-campus housing must cancel their housing applications. Housing applications can be canceled from MyHousing prior to March 9. After March 9, students must email email@example.com with the following information to be removed from the process before receiving a selection number:
Subject: Withdrawal from Housing
Body: Your name, Sage ID (20-xxxxxx), and housing assignment (if you have one). Please include whether you are withdrawing from the housing selection process or from your housing assignment.
You must withdraw before 11:59PM EST on May 1 to be removed from on-campus housing without being charged any fees. Please refer to the Housing License Agreement for more information on withdrawal dates and associated fees.
Students who miss the housing application will need to submit the Waitlist Application on Myhousing, which will open after housing applications close.
We cannot guarantee the availability of housing options or guarantee your first choice in housing. Forms with incomplete information will not be processed. It is important to note that students on the waitlist are NOT able to participate in the traditional online room selection.
Yes! You can designate Community Living or another student as a proxy to log in during your time and select housing for you. Please make sure you have a few backup plans so your proxy is able to select housing for you to the best of their ability.
Fill out the Proxy Designation Form
Students will be able to sign up for a meeting to speak with a Community Living staff member one-on-one about housing selection. Appointments will be available March 21 - 25 and March 28 - April 1. More information about these meetings will be provided in the next few weeks.
Numbers are not transferable, nor do we reassign unused numbers. If the student whose number is used to secure a suite/apartment withdraws from housing for any reason before move-in, everyone in the suite/apartment will be removed from the assignment and placed on the waitlist.
Students who do not select a space during the housing selection process are automatically placed on the pending assignment list in selection number order.
Students who did not sign up for housing selection but wish to live on campus will be able to apply to be on the housing waitlist through their MyHousing portal after the housing application closes. Students on the waitlist are not guaranteed an assignment, but we will work with you on a first-come, first-serve basis. Students on the waitlist who no longer wish to live on campus will need to email firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
Subject: Withdrawal from Housing
Body: Your name, Sage ID (20-xxxxxx), and housing assignment (if you have one). Please include if you are currently on the pending assignments list or waitlist.
Yes, transfer students who live on-campus and off-campus can participate in room selection. Transfer students will be counted as rising juniors or seniors, depending on class standing and expected graduation date. For example, a student graduating in Spring 2023 is classified as a rising senior.
Students planning to study abroad for the Fall semester who want to live on campus in the Spring (or for the full year if their study abroad plans change) should apply for Housing Selection. These students will participate in a separate housing selection process. Housing for these students will be in Village and a limited number of suites in Ziv 130.
Students returning to campus in the spring have the opportunity to be pulled into a space by non-study abroad students with a vacancy at the end of the Fall semester. Community Living will entertain pull-in requests but also reserves the right to place any eligible student in need of housing in that space. Information is provided to students with a vacancy in late Fall prior to these spaces being assigned to students returning to campus in January.
Students who apply to study abroad for Spring and then do not go abroad will have to change housing at the end of the fall semester. These students will receive priority for spring semester housing, but we cannot guarantee spring housing for students who remain on campus.
Students who apply to study abroad during the Fall semester but do not go abroad will receive priority for fall semester housing based on availability, but we cannot guarantee housing will be available.
Students should communicate with the Office for Study Abroad and Community Living if their study abroad plans change.
