Going abroad?

If you will be abroad or otherwise unable to participate in the housing selection process, you will need to fill out the housing proxy form.

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 with the registrar before selection begins.

What are my housing options?

Students have the option of the following types of housing: single rooms, double rooms, triple rooms, campus program houses, suites in the Schoolhouse, Luce World Language and Culture suites, All-Gender Housing, Senior Specialized, and Greek Section Housing. There are separate housing applications and processes for each type of housing option.

How do my friends and I get a house?

Most students who live in houses have a commitment to a service agency through Wooster Volunteer Network (WVN) and Campus Programs. Read more about Campus Program Houses and the application process.

Senior students wishing to live in locations like the Fairlawn, Henderson and East End, and Helms, as well as some other smaller houses (2-10 students), may also apply for Senior Specialized Housing.

How do I get 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 choose my roommate?

After your first year, you get to choose you who live with. If you don't have a roommate preference, a roommate will be assigned to you.

How can I receive additional financial assistance?

Please contact the Financial Aid to see if you are eligible for additional financial aid (grants or loans) for premium housing rates.  Financial aid can be reached at (330) 263-2317.
