Place a deposit to be added to the housing priority list. If you are currently living in the house, you do not need to place another deposit.
*Your deposit does not guaranteed a space in the house.*
How is priority determined?
Priority is based on the order deposits are placed, with the following exceptions:
- Members currently living in house are given higher priority than other members
- Members who only plan to live in house for one semester (spring or fall) are given lower priority than members planning to live in house for a full academic year
- Members with outstanding debt of $600 or more are given lower priority than other members
How does room assignment work?
There are two stages to room assignment. Both stages assign rooms starting with the first deposit placed and working towards the last, with any listed exceptions.
First, double rooms are assigned in the following order:
- Any members who made a double deposit will be given the choice of any open double rooms
- If two members who made double deposits both listed each other as preferred roommates, they will be moved to the top of the priority list for doubles assignment
- The first member in the priority list will also be given the option to choose their roommate from any other members who made a double deposit who have not yet been assigned a room
- If a member cannot find a roommate after 3 days, they will be assigned a roommate from the viable options
- If no more options remain for roommates, the Outer Guard will reach out to anyone else on the priority list if they would be willing to live in a double and assign roommates based on priority
- If a double room cannot be filled, it will be left empty until all single rooms have been assigned
After double rooms are assigned, single rooms are assigned in priority order. Members who made a double deposit who did not get a double room are placed into the priority list based on when they made their deposit.
Once all single rooms are assigned, if there are any empty double rooms, members who still don't have a room will be given the option of living in the double based on priority. If a member chooses not to live in the double room at this point, they will not have another chance to choose a room unless one becomes available at a later point.
- Standard Deposit: placed into priority list normally. Only given the option to live in a double if no other rooms are available
- Double Deposit: placed into priority list normally. Given a chance to live in doubles before any singles are assigned
