Room Draw : Dates coming soon.

  • Students must complete the Room Squatting & Room Draw Participation Form to participate in room draw.
  • Students interested in living in a single-occupancy room (not a double held as a single) or triple participate in a preliminary room draw process due to the limited availability of these types of rooms. If a student does not get their desired room, then they will attend Room Draw the following night.
  • Room Draw for all residence halls will be held 9:00pm in the Chapel.
