FAQ's

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?

In mid to late February, detailed information about housing selection will be released and students will receive a housing selection number. Watch for an email with more information!

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 senior do have priority in choice. Rising Seniors will have a number ranging from 1000-1999, rising Juniors 2000-2999, etc. 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, multiple rooms, houses, suites in the Schoolhouse, Language suites, C3 (Cross Cultural Connections), Gender Neutral Housing, and more. There is a separate housing application and process 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 apply through the Office of Interfaith Campus Ministry and do service in the community. Program Houses will apply through the Residence Life Office and do service in some capacity on campus. Program and Charter Houses will need to complete the Program House Application. WVN Houses will need to complete the WVN House Application.

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. If you are invited to the process, you are guaranteed a room!

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, there will be a roommate finder program closer to housing selection to help you meet a potential roommate. 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.
