Current Sophomores, Juniors, & Seniors - Housing Lottery Information

Upperclass Lottery Information

Rising junior and senior students are not required to live on campus. Rising juniors must obtain permission through the Off Campus Application Procress to live off campus during 2017-2018. Students that submit a housing deposit by Friday, February 3, 2017 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 conact the Office of Residence Life ( as soon as possible. Students participating in the lottery are provided selection times randomly and will choose housing in groups of 2, 3, 4, or 5 based on the best selection time of students in the group. Most upperclass housing is in groups of 4.

All rising junior and senior students will select from the following halls/buidings:

  • Montrone and Pilarz Halls (apartments)
  • Mulberry Plaza and Madison Square Apartments
  • Linden Avenue Apartments (Dorothy Day, Katharine Drexel, and Elizabeth Ann Seton)

Information Sessions and Additional Information

At the beginning of the Spring 2017 semester, we will host lottery information sessions for students to see a live demo of the housing lottery process. Information sessions will be held in large common areas of the residence halls or in the DeNaples Center. Times and dates will be published in Februrary 2017. While upperclass students are not required to attend information sessions, we strongly encourage students to ensure they understand the system and process by asking questions of staff or attending a session.
