Housing Lottery Requirements
Students participating in the Housing Selection lottery will be online through a system called MyHousing (available in OASIS2). To be eligible for Housing Selection, students must meet the following requirements by Monday, April 8.
- Enroll full-time for fall semester (12 credit hours)
- Clear all outstanding holds on student account
- Complete the online Housing Application and Contract (in MyHousing)
Students who do not meet the eligibility requirements by Monday, April 8 forfeit their early lottery time. If you qualify after the deadline, please contact the Campus Life office to ensure that your name is added to the lottery.
How Lottery Times are Determined
For students participating in the lottery, lottery times are automatically generated. First, students will be grouped by the number of earned credit hours they currently hold. For example, students with 90 credit hours will get to choose housing before students with 89 credit hours. Then, within each credit hour grouping, students will be sorted by GPA. Using the same example, the group of students with 90 credit hours is sorted so that the student with the highest GPA will be permitted to select first within the group. Lottery times will be posted in MyHousing in advance of Housing Selection, after Friday, April 12.
Complete Lottery Rules
A full listing of lottery rules will be sent to current students in March via campus e-mail and will be posted in each residence hall and on this website.
