Step 6 – Room Selection Nights


What is a Proxy?

A Proxy is someone who will choose a room in your place if you cannot attend your scheduled Room Selection Night. Proxy Forms will be collected from your Proxy at the night of Room Selection by one of our Residence Life Staff Members. Failure to have a completed Proxy Form when your Group is called will result in you/your group being passed over, and may forfeit your position in the  Selection Process.

**A student can identify a Res. Life Staff member to act as their Proxy, i.e.  Director of Residence Life**

Room Selection Nights- will be held March 2nd-5th in Fels Main Lounge

*Failure for a group to be on time and/or present at Room Selection Lottery will result in the group being skipped.*

The Process will begin in Fels Main Lounge (Fireplace Room) and each group will be called in order to go to Fels 301.

Room Selection Process

Students will select rooms in order of their Group Lottery Number.  The students Group with the lowest Group Lottery Number will go first.  Each student from the roommate Group that is listed will start in Fels Main Lounge and receive a copy of their printed Housing Form when their Group is called.  Please be prepared to indicate which room you wish to live in.  For example, if you are choosing Kuppenheimer or Remillard, be prepared to indicate who will live in Room A and who will live in Room B.

Reshuffling Process

Reshuffling happens when your Group is called and the type of room you wanted is no longer available.  If your Group remains intact, you may divide and pick a new space immediately. If you would like to add another person to your group, your new Group Priority will be re-considered, noting that seniority plays a role.

Choosing a Meal Plan

When you sign up for Housing for 2020-2021 you will also designate which Meal Plan you prefer for the academic year.  You are able to change your Meal Plan option through the Residence Life Office up until the end of the add/drop period at the beginning of each semester. All residents are required to have a meal plan. ​If a meal plan is not chosen during Room Selection nights, then the default Unlimited Plan will be assigned.

  • Option 2: Unlimited Meals with $150 Bison Bucks per semester
  • Option 3**: 10 Meal Plan per week with $250 Bison Bucks per semester
