Housing Lottery Information (i.e. Housing Selection/Room Draw)

For Returning Students

Reminder for current freshmen: When you entered UR, you signed a two year housing agreement. The College has determined that living on-campus is important to the successful development of UR students. Residential Life does not anticipate releasing freshmen from the sophomore year of the housing requirement. We will review limited requests that have supporting documentation for financial or medical accommodations.

To request a release for financial reasons, meet with someone from Financial Aid.
To request a release for medical reasons, follow the information provided here.

For all students: Watch for the 2016-2017 Room Selection Newspaper for All Students! This will be available in mid-February, both delivered to your room and found on this website.

Each resident at the University has the opportunity to select his or her room and roommate/suite-mates for the following academic year. Dates and times of room/suite/apartment tours, paperwork deadlines, and other information will be posted here:
