Housing Over Assignment
Occasionally there are times when there are more students guaranteed housing than spaces available in the residence halls. In the event this does occur: double rooms that were previously triples (or rooms that can accommodate three people) will be converted to triple occupancy; single rooms that were previously double rooms will return to double occupancy; and, designated floor lounges will be converted into student rooms. Room rent charges will be adjusted for those students whose room occupancy changes due to an over-assignment situation.
Your priority number determines when you are allowed to log on and select a room and dining assignment.
- Priority numbers are randomly generated based on the number of semesters you have lived in campus housing.
- The larger your number, the sooner you are allowed to participate and the more room options you will have.
- Separate priority numbers are issued for each gender.
- Numbers begin at the high end of the range and decrease to the total number of residents eligible, by gender, in that range. For example: if senior male numbers start at 6999 and decrease to 6698 then 301 rising senior males are eligible for housing.
- If you believe your priority number is incorrect, please contact Residence Life and Housing immediately. Changes to your number cannot be made once selection begins.
- Non-resident students will not be issued a priority number and are not eligible to participate in the Room and Dining Selection Process.

You will receive a very important email from Residence Life and Housing the week of March 1, 2013 communicating the following:
- Your username and password – this will allow you access to the new online assignments website.
- Your priority number and log on time – your log on time is based on your priority number. Log on times range from 04/22/13 at 8:15 a.m. to 04/26/13 at 4p.m. The higher your priority number, the sooner you are allowed to log on and self select your room and dining assignments.
- Your roommate pin and password – this is your personal authentication code in order to give another student the ability to pull you into a room/apartment.
