A defining characteristic of your undergraduate life at Princeton is living as a member of a small residential community. Each year undergraduate students are assigned to a room for the following academic year. Your room assignment method depends on whether you are an incoming freshmen or a rising sophomore, junior, or senior.
Each member of the incoming freshmen class is assigned to a room within a Residential College and informed of their room assignment in mid-July. There is a method used for freshmen room and roommate assignment and assignment notification.
Rising Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors
Rising Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors make their own room selection by participating in a process called Room Draw.
Note: Rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors who plan to live in an eating club or another off-campus location, or who will not be on campus in the fall because of study abroad plans or a planned leave of absence, do not participate in the Room Draw process. If you are unsure about your arrangements for the fall you may participate in the process but are asked to select a single or place yourself on the waiting list. (See the Undergraduate Room Draw Guide for greater detail.)
