Lottery is a procedure for returning students to select rooms by class rank and random number draw with provisions for options such as special interest houses, fraternity/sorority houses, friendship groups, townhouses, doubles/singles, and keeping one's room. This allows students to choose a room closest to their preferences from rooms that are available. A student's room choice is self-determined within a fair and equitable system.
The lottery process takes place each year for our rising sophomores, juniors and seniors during the middle of April. Shortly before that time a Lottery Booklet with complete information is posted to this page. The 2017-2018 Lottery booklet is now accessible.
