Singles: Draw a lottery number and pick from available rooms when your number is called. Have a backup double room in mind in case there are no singles left when your number is called.

Doubles: All doubles must be filled by two students. When signing up for a double please line up with your chosen roommate using the lowest lottery number you have.      

All Female Hall- Will be Porter Hall.

Gender Inclusive Hall- Will be Whitney Hall.

Apartments: Apartments must be filled at time of room selection.

Proxy: If you are unable to draw your number or choose your room, you may have someone do this for you. If you need a proxy, give your Beloit College ID or a note to your proxy at selection time.  Regardless of whether you want a room in a single room, double room or the same room for next year, you may have a proxy act for you, either in drawing a number or choosing a room.  You can also ask someone in Res Life to be your proxy.  A room selected by a proxy for an on-campus student will be held for 24 hours.  The student must come to the Res Life Office within 24 hours to sign the room agreement or the room will be returned to the lottery pool.

Waiting List:

If you are dissatisfied with the room you choose in Lottery, you may elect to participate in the waiting list procedure.  If you participate, you will then choose up to two (2) other residence halls in which you would rather live.  As vacancies develop, and after transfer and exchange students are placed, individuals on the list will be assigned rooms.  Ranking on the list is determined on a first come, first served basis.  The waiting list will be available immediately after Lottery on Monday, April 29th in the Res Life Office.

NOTE:  If you sign the waiting list, you agree to be moved to any open space that matches your request.  You will be notified of any such change over the summer.



Cancellation Policy: All Rooms must be cancelled by June 15th, 2019 or a cancellation fee will be applied to your account.

If you have insurance coverage you can take care of completing your insurance waiver while participating in room lottery by completing the waiver form on the Portal.
