Areas of Study

Second year graduate students will have higher priority over first year graduate students (who are currently undergraduate students graduating in May 2021) when choosing rooms in the Graduate Community during the Room Lottery process.
Second year graduate students will be eligible to choose these options in the Graduate Community in Carlin Hall (6th, 7th and 8th floors):

  • Groups of 4
  • Groups of 2 (may obtain two singles in a suite)
  • Single rooms in a suite (pending availability and according to number of points each person has)

You may choose the Single Room Housing option when completing your Lottery Application.

Important Notes for Graduate Students

  • Complete the Course Registration, Housing Application and Lottery Application online by Sunday, June 20, 2021;
  • You will receive an e-mail notification from Residence Life and Housing if the application has been approved by your assigned day/time for Room Lottery; and
  • Room Lottery process will take place online via your BISON account on Thursday, June 24, 2021.


Students who have not participated in the Room Lottery process or missed the application deadline will automatically be placed on the waiting list. Residence Life and Housing reserves the right to assign students to vacant spaces.
Students who cancel the room assignment AFTER receiving their room assignments will automatically be charged the $500.00 cancellation fee.
