Housing Selection Process
For Rising Juniors
You are considered a rising junior if you:
- Started as a new student anytime prior to the Fall of 2016
- Started as a transfer student anytime prior to the Fall of 2017
Housing Selection Process and You
As a Rising Junior:
- If you are attending classes on the Boston campus for fall 2017 and spring 2018, you are not required to live on campus and will unlikely be able to receive on campus housing.
- If you don’t want to live on campus, you don’t need to do anything.
- If you are planning to attend an External Program for either fall 2017 or spring 2018, you have the option to place your name in the campus housing alternate pool, this link can be found on the housing website.
(For rising Juniors and Seniors who do not fall under the residency requirement but want to be considered for on campus housing)
If you sign up for the alternate pool, you will remain in the Housing alternate pool for fall 2017 until one of the following happens:
- You are offered a space on campus and you accept.
- You let OHRL know that you have found off-campus housing and no longer wish to remain in the alternate pool.
- At the end of the Add/Drop period in the fall semester (Wednesday, September 20, 2017), we will release all students still in the alternate pool. At this time the alternate pool for housing for the fall 2017 semester will be closed.
How does the alternate pool work? Is it first come first serve?
The alternate pool is NOT first come first serve. Placements are based on a number of factors including suitability of roommate match and need based on verified disability or financial accommodation.
If Not Offered Housing
At the end of the Add/Drop period in the fall semester (Wednesday, September 20, 2017), we will release all students still in the alternate pool. At this time the alternate pool for housing for the fall 2017 semester will be closed.
