Mixed Point Groups
Mixed point groups refer to groups that are comprised of students from different classes. Groups are assigned a single point value based on the average point value of all individual group members. As mixed point groups have members with different point values, the group's point value falls between the assigned values for each class.
After the registration period is over, each individual or group is assigned a randomly selected, computer-generated lottery number. Groups receive one lottery number. Individuals or groups with lower lottery numbers will have appointment times towards the beginning of Room Selection, whereas higher lottery numbers will have appointment times towards the end of Room Selection.
Lottery numbers are typically assigned as follows:
Seniors (40 points): Lottery numbers 1- 1000
Mixed-point groups of seniors and juniors (30.1 – 39.9 points): Lottery numbers 1001 – 2000
Juniors (30 points): Lottery numbers 2001 – 3000
Mixed-point groups of juniors and sophomores (20.1 – 29.9 points): Lottery numbers 3001 – 4000
Students will receive an email when lottery numbers are posted in the Housing Portal. Please see the Housing Calendar for dates.
Each individual or group is then assigned a specific appointment date and time to choose their room. Groups will have one appointment time and selections will be made by the group leader.
Students’ and groups' appointment times are posted to the Registration Summary page of the Housing Application in the Housing Portal after registration has closed.
Rooms can be selected any time between your assigned appointment time and the end of Room Selection. However, we encourage students to select as early as possible in order to have the most options to choose from.
Students will receive an email when appointment times become available. Please see the Housing Calendar for dates.
