Ben Weiner / email@example.com Room Selection Process The room selection widget on Residence gives you an opportunity to view the selection process, the selection time, and the status countdowns the time until the selection.
It will become available to students once the lottery is open. Step 1: Roommate Management The roommate management tab allows students to form a roommate group. Once a group is formed, available housing for the group size will be displayed. The view room tab displays a real-time listing of the rooms available. The make room selection tab allows the participants to select a room.
On April 11, 2013, you will receive an email with your lottery number and selection time. Students must first log in to complete their housing application before forming groups. After that, you will be able to go in and form roommate groups. Step 2: Create a roommate group 1. Click the roommate management tab.
2. Enter your selected roommates passcodes.
3. Select Enter after each code
Roommates will be displayed after entering each code. Repeat steps 1-3 until all roommates are entered.
Students will receive an email if they are added into a group or removed from one as well.
4. Save/Submit: when all roommates have been entered, save or submit to finalize the group. Step 3: View Rooms Here you can view the rooms available. Based on the size of your roommate group, you can view rooms where your group size will fit. Should there be no rooms, you will need to reconfigure your group size to find available rooms.
For examples, if you create of group of 3 and on your selection date and time there are no triples available, or 3 spaces in a quad, you will have to reset your group size to proceed. To remove group members simply press the x button. To move a member up to a group leader, simply press the green up arrow. Step 4: Make a Room Selection The selection window
displays the countdown until you can select a room.
Your Group lists all the group members and the group leader is indicated by the gold star.
Your Room allows you to submit draft choices so when it is your turn to select you may pick one of these spaces if it is still available. This DOES NOT mean that you will automatically get one of these spaces.
Keep in mind the group leader is technically the owner of the group. So if they cannot make the room selection it would be best to assign another owner to make the room selection. Step 5: Finalize Decision To finalize the decision simply click Finalize Selection. If you're not sure just click Save and Finish Later. However, please be advised that each lottery number has 5 minutes to select a room. If you miss your selection time, you can log in at any point after your time starts until the end of the lottery to complete the process. You cannot finalize your choice until your selection date and time.
Keep in Mind: You must log back in during your assigned time to make your selection final in Residence.
If you fail to log in and select a space before the lottery ends you will be placed on a waitlist. Review: How to Login to Residence Go to http://mountida-residence.symplicity.com
