Areas of Study

All current students may choose this option regardless of their class status. Students must complete the Housing Application and Lottery Application online via BISON.

Any students who do not have a roommate in mind can choose to be placed on the Waiting List. Roommates will be randomly selected by Residence Life and Housing. However, the room assignment will take place after the Room Lottery ends and it will be at Residence Life and Housing’s discretion.

Important notes for Students on the Waiting List

  • Complete the Housing and Lottery Application online by Sunday, June 13, 2021.
  • You will receive an e-mail notification from Residence Life and Housing with your hall/room assignment.


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.
