Graduate Apartment Pre-Draw Retention
PRE-DRAW RETENTION is available to all first and second year graduate students currently living in an apartment. Under this policy, you can retain your current apartment for the next academic year. If you choose this option, you do not have to move out and you do not have to enter the room draw process. For first and second year graduate students living in a two bedroom apartment, you can retain your apartment, even if your current roommate does not wish to retain with you. In this case, you can pull in any other student (as long as they are a current first year through third year). You can also retain a two bedroom if your current roommate moves out and you wish to have a domestic partner, spouse or family member move in with you. WE STRONGLY ENCOURAGE ALL FIRST AND SECOND YEAR STUDENTS TO PARTICIPATE IN PRE-DRAW RETENTION. Students who decide not to accept the Pre-Draw Retention option will still be eligible for the regular Room Draw but risk being placed on the wait list. All other students (those housed in the GC/Annexes, and those in their third year and above) should enter the regular Room Draw process.
If you have any questions, please be sure to view our Pre-Draw Retention Frequently Asked Questions or please email the Graduate Housing Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
