Undergraduate Room Draw Guide
Post Draw Information
Room Improvement is a post-draw process designed to improve the housing status of those upperclass students who had draw times in the bottom quarter of their respective class draw. Only these designated students (posted with the draw times) who choose a room during the Regular Upperclass Draw only, are eligible for Room Improvement. Dropping down to one of the groups in the bottom quarter does not make a student eligible for room improvement. By utilizing dormitory vacancies that occur after Room Draw and before July 1, students are moved from the rooms they drew to rooms based on specific requests submitted online.
When applying for Room Improvement, students can prioritize their dormitory preferences (i.e. single or suite). Notes about other choices and detailed preferences regarding specific dormitories and or square footage desired should be added in the comment section provided.
To apply for Room Improvement, you must complete a Room Improvement application located on the Undergraduate Housing website, before the deadline. Please complete the form carefully so that you clearly communicate your criteria for an improved room. If you desire a single and do not specify minimum square footage or location, if any single is available, you will be moved. Please be certain to list the minimum square footage you would accept. If square footage rather than proximity is your group's priority, you should complete four separate forms each listing your own requirements.
All Room Improvement applications are kept in original draw time order. The Room Improvement process is completed by the first week of July by matching requests to dormitory vacancies that occur between the end of room draw and July 1. If the criteria indicated on your form are met by one of the vacancies, you will be assigned to that room/suite and notified of your new address by e-mail in mid July. This assignment is permanent and you cannot choose to remain in your original room. If you do not receive notice from the Department of Housing, then your request could not be met, and you will remain in your original room. Assignments for upperclassmen will be made by the Manager for Undergraduate Housing.
