Current First-Year Student Housing Lottery Information

Current First-year Lottery Information

All first-year residential students are required to live on campus during their sophomore year. As such, each residential student will be provided access to the housing lottery system in the student's housing portal. Commuting students that wish to live on campus during 2017-2018 should contact the Office of Residence Life (res-life@scranton.edu) as soon as possible. Students participating in the lottery are provided selection times randomly and will choose housing in groups of 4 based on the best selection time of students in the group.

All rising sophomore students will select housing from Condron, Gavigan, and Redington Halls. These buildings are comprised of "quads" which are two double bedrooms connected by a shared bathroom.
