Housing & Residential Life encourages all upper class students, who want to live in the residence halls, to participate in Priority Room Selection The advantage of participating in Priority Room Selection is that students have the opportunity to pick the exact room they want to live in, and, if a student knows who they would like to live with, they can sign up with their roommate. If you choose not to participate in priority room selection, don’t worry! Individuals can apply online! Remember, apply early as there is a limited number of spaces available on campus. The dates of Priority Room Selection vary by year but normally occur in late February or early March. If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 313-577-2116.
