How are Lottery Times Generated?
Housing Options 2015-2016
What you should know...
Students are assigned lottery dates and times based on the number of credits earned by the end of Fall 2014.

For example, the student with the most earned credits will get the first selection time and so on. If there are two or more students with the same number of earned credits, the computer will randomly assign time slots to those students before others with fewer credits.

The Registrar's Office has identified the following: Rising Seniors: 75+ credits earned towards your degree. Rising Juniors: 45+ credits earned towards your degree. Rising Sophomores: 15+ credits earned towards your degree.

Residence Life does not do credit audits, so plan ahead to confirm your number of credits earned and speak to your success coach/advisor or the Registrar's Office if you have questions.
General Housing Availability:
Malloy Hall
New Hall (45+ or more credits required)
Chapman Hall
Brown Hall
Wingate Hall

Academic Intensive (24 Hour Quiet) will be located on the 2nd and 3rd floors of Brown Hall and on the 3rd Floor North side of New Hall.
Pay your nonrefundable $300 housing deposit by March 30, 2015. You can pay your deposit two different ways:

Option 1: Pay your housing deposit via credit card or echeck online through the My Finances Tab on MiWeb. When you click on the My Finances Tab you will see a drop down that reads Fall Room Selection Deposit.

Option 2: Deliver your housing deposit in person to the Office of Student Financial Services on the first floor of Holbrook Hall between the hours of 8:30 am – 4:30 pm Monday through Friday. If you select option 2 you must pay your housing deposit by 4:30 p.m. on March 30, 2015.

Please note any family utilizing the monthly payment plan (TMS) may not submit the housing deposit via the monthly payment plan. Additional funds submitted through TMS will be considered a direct payment to the students account, not a housing deposit.

Submit your housing application via Residence by March 30, 2015. Applications will be available on February 2, 2015.

Class registration for room selection participation by Monday, April 6, 2015. Residents must have 12 credits to live on campus and 9 out of the 12 must be in-person classes.

Room Selection lottery dates and times will be sent to your Mount Ida email address on Thursday, April 9, 2015.
How to Get a Single
There is no separate time to pick a single!
If we have them available during room selection, it's yours!
Singles are available in: New Hall, Chapman, Wingate, and Malloy.
Spaces are limited!
Singles cost an additional $1,300.00 per year ($650.00 per semester)
Please be advised that all forms and documentation pursuant to a medical single must be completed and on file with the Office of Disability Services by March 6, 2015.
Please note that if you are currently in a medical single, you must resubmit paperwork for the 2015-2016 year to be reviewed by the Office of Disability Services.

No Lottery Time?

If a student did not get a lottery time it was due to one or more of the following:
They did not get their housing deposit in by March 30th.
They did not submit their housing application by March 30th.
They did not register for 12 or more credits, 9 of which are in person classes, by April 6th.

If you do not get a lottery time and you want housing for the Fall of 2015, you must contact the Office of Residence Life to request the waitlist housing application.

Once students have paid their deposit, submitted their housing application and registered they will be assigned spaces as soon as possible.

Those who are still working on paying their deposits and or registering will be on the waitlist until they are cleared for housing.
