Housing Lotteries and Blocking Process for 2018-2019

Housing Lotteries

***New for 2018-2019***

  • If you are interested in living in the PPR Apartments, you must visit and fully read the PPR Apartments Website, which explains all requirements and expectations.  Students will be asked to complete a PPR Apartments Agreement Form, which explains the expectations residents who live in that community must agree to, as well as attend a mandatory meeting in April or May (Fall for current abroad/on-leave students) to learn more information about apartment-style living and expectations.  The PPR Apartments serve as three individual complexes that are interconnected on floors.  Each apartment offers a living room and small kitchen, refrigerator, microwave, bathrooms, and all single occupancy rooms.  Dining Services will continue to provide an "apartment meal plan" that residents will be able to choose.  The majority of the apartments will be offered as blocking options for rising juniors and seniors, and all blocked apartments are gender-inclusive. Additionally, to continue to meet the needs of students requesting gendered housing options, two apartments will be designated as female-only and male-only, and students will be able to select into these spaces at the senior and junior lotteries.  At this time, only rising juniors and seniors will be permitted to live in the PPR Apartments.  Feel free to view the PPR Apartments Floor Plan to get a better sense of the community.
  • The 2018-2019 Bathrooms List contains a comprehensive list of bathroom gender designations.
  • Woolman House will undergo a renovation for the Summer of 2018 to improve student space.  Some of the features to be included will be updated kitchen and lounge spaces.
  • Due to the continued interest in Substance-Free Communities, next year's community will continue to be located on 3rd Hallowell Hall.  
  • Kyle House, and Lodges 3 & 4 will continue to not be available for the 2018-2019 year.
