Winter/Spring On-Campus Housing for Upper-class Students

Winter/Spring Housing Requests

This Housing Request Form is for those upperclass students (junior, senior, or super-senior status) who fall into one of the following categories:

  • Students who will be returning from a leave of absence in the Winter or Spring Term
  • Students who are participating in Study Abroad/Away programs during the Fall and/or Winter Term and wish to reside on campus when they return
  • New Transfer students starting at the College during the Winter or Spring Term and wish to reside on campus

Assignments for these students will be made by Residential Life staff on a first-come, first-served basis as spaces permit. Students who wish to reside with a friend who is currently on campus may indicate that request on the form below. In some limited instances, a student who selects a housing space for the Fall Term may indicate that they have a friend who will be returning to campus in the Winter or Spring Term. Residential Life staff will make their best effort to honor these requests.
