Undergraduate Room Draw Guide
Planning for Room Draw, Room Locations, Building Information and Floor Plans
Planning for the draw includes a knowledge of special room locations, building information and floor plans. A review of information contained here will result in the best room selection for your particular needs.
Floor plans for every dormitory room on campus by floor are available on the Undergraduate Housing Web site. These plans will indicate the locations of rooms. Common areas, bathroom and kitchen locations are also indicated.
You are strongly encouraged to visit as many rooms as you can prior to Room Draw. There is no substitute for on-site visits. Square footage measurements may be affected by renovations, and include all space including halls and closets so that relying purely on posted materials may be misleading. Please contact Dean Maria Flores-Mills in the Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Students if current occupants of a particular room do not allow access.
Available Rooms List
This list posted on the Undergraduate Room Draw Program website is a listing of rooms available for selection in every draw. The data contained on the list is based on preliminary occupancy ratings for the next academic year. The list can be ordered by specific dormitory and rated occupancy, i.e. the number of students who may be housed in the room. You may then sort the list by square footage, substance free room location, gender designated areas, general neutral areas, or residential college zones. When room selection is in progress this list will appear in real time, indicating which rooms are still available. Students are reminded to refresh this list often during the draw. The available rooms list will be available when draw times are posted.
Dormitory Fire Safety Exemption List
A list of dormitories granted life-safety variances by the New Jersey State Department of Community Affairs, Bureau of Housing Inspection, and Division of Fire Safety. A brief description of the regulation, the University response or the exception granted are provided.
Gender Designated Areas
Certain upperclass dormitories are regulated by gender, i.e. either one gender may live in a particular area or either gender may occupy an area but there is a limit to the number of men or women who may reside there. These areas are regulated because of the limited bathroom facilities located in the building.
Gender Neutral Areas
In addition to the Spelman draw, there will be mixed gender housing available to sophomores, juniors and seniors in the other draws. These rooms will show as mixed gender in the available rooms list.
Under Construction Alert (Possible Noise Nuisance)
Residents of both Scully and Bloomberg Halls may experience construction noise during the academic year due to the construction of the new Neuroscience and Psychology Building.
Substance Free Areas
Within each Residential College and in specific locations in Upperclass Dormitories areas have been designated to be substance free. Rooms within these substance free areas will be indicated on the available rooms list during room selection. If a substance free room is selected, a student will be asked to accept the Substance Free Agreement.
