Housing Selection is a process that happens every spring semester. In this process, students go through a process to choose their rooms for the following year. The following questions are ones that are frequently asked before the process begins.
WHEN DOES THE HOUSING SELECTION PROCESS START?
It already has! Applications are available now (see above). Students should begin the process of deciding what kind of housing they would like to apply for, as well as who they want to live with. More detailed information will be released at the beginning of Spring Semester.
WHAT IS A HOUSING SELECTION NUMBER?
Housing selection numbers are randomly assigned to each class cohort. Numbers truly are random; no priority is given based upon GPA, credits earned, or any other reason. Rising seniors do have priority in choice. Rising Seniors will have a number ranging from 1000-1999, rising Juniors 2000-2999, rising Sophomores 3000-3999. We recommend that transfer students confirm their class year before selection begins.
WHAT OPTIONS DO I HAVE FOR HOUSING?
Students have the option of the following types of housing: single rooms, double rooms, triple rooms, program and WVN houses, suites in the Schoolhouse, Language suites, C3 (Cross Cultural Connections), All-Gender Housing, and Greek Section Housing. There is a separate housing applications and processes for each type of housing option.
HOW DO MY FRIENDS AND I GET IN A HOUSE?
Most students who live in houses have a commitment to a service agency. Houses are available to two different types of groups: Wooster Volunteer Network (WVN) and Campus Programs. WVN house will work with an agency outside of the College of Wooster along with the Office of Interfaith Campus Ministry and do service in the community. Program Houses will provide programming to the College of Wooster campus community and work with the Residence Life Office. All students interested in living in a Campus Program or WVN House will need to complete the application above.
Senior students wishing to live in locations like the Fairlawn, Henderson and Kennedy Apartments, as well as some other smaller houses (3-6 students) may also apply for Senior Specialized Housing. This option is open to Senior students only.
HOW DO I GET IN A SINGLE/TRIPLE ROOM?
Students express interest in a single or multiple room by application. Applications are put in housing selection number order and students will be invited to the selection process based upon available number of rooms.
DO I GET TO PICK MY OWN ROOMMATE?
Absolutely! After your first year, you get to choose you who live with. If you don't have a roommate preference, that is okay too- a roommate will be assigned to you.
WHAT SHOULD I DO IF I HAVE MORE QUESTIONS?
Your Resident Assistant (RA) can be a great resource for you! Reach out to them and ask your questions! You can also feel free to stop by the Campus Life Office (Lowry ground floor) and talk with any Residence Life staff member.
