Room Lottery: Second-Year Experience

Single suites and rooms in partially-filled suites will be distributed by the room lottery process for rising second-year students.

To participate in the room lottery process, select one person to be your group coordinator. Your group coordinator will need to submit a group application in MyHousing by the designated deadline below:

Size of Group Application Deadline Lottery Day Lottery Time
6 people in a suite (SRV) Friday, March 25 at noon Monday, March 28 3 to 6 p.m.
5 people in a suite (SRV) Friday, March 25 at noon  Monday, March 28 3 to 5 p.m.
4 people in a suite/apartment (Triangle/STJ) Tuesday, March 29 at noon Wednesday, March 30 3 to 5 p.m.
3 people in a suite (SRV) Tuesday, March 29 at noon Wednesday, March 30 3 to 5 p.m.
2 people in a suite/apartment (SRV/Triangle/STJ) Thursday, March 31 at noon Friday, April 1 3 to 5 p.m.

After the application deadline, your group coordinator will receive an email notification directing you to the MyHousing website, with the following information:

  • how many groups applied for that particular lottery
  • your randomly generated lottery number
  • the day and time you can access the online room selection system on MyHousing

Only the group coordinator will have access to the online room selection system. Make sure that person knows what specific bedrooms everyone in the group is interested in. If the group coordinator is not available at the designated time, they can log on later during the lottery time. Please realize that other groups will choose their rooms before you, and a suite or apartment will not be held for you.

If all suites/apartments/rooms are selected before your group's lottery time, your group will be allowed to participate in another room lottery for a different size group.

To participate in the lottery process, you must complete your individual housing application by Monday, March 21, 2022.
