Your Housing Intent Form will serve as your housing preference form for the Spring 2014 semester. Because we realize plans become more concrete over the course of the semester, you may make any necessary changes to your preferences at any time prior to December 1st by emailing Sharon Fissel, Assistant Director of Residence Life for Housing, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please know that any Housing Intent/Preference Forms received after Friday, April 26, 2013, will be placed in date received order and housed after those who submitted on-time Housing Intent/Preference forms.
Housing Intent Forms are then placed in class year/lottery number order for housing placement for the spring semester. Please note that the PLACEMENT process will begin December 2013.
To provide the greatest possible chance of matching your preferences with available housing, we wait to assess TOTAL vacancies including withdrawals, transfers, and academic dismissals (which are not decided until the week of January 6, 2014). Therefore, the Office of Residence Life will not complete housing assignments until the the week of January 13, 2014. Once assignments are completed, students will be emailed at which time they can view their spring housing assignment via MyHousing in CNAV.

If you are studying abroad you will be able to select your OWN housing online (if you are not applying to live in theme housing or off-campus housing). With the online housing system, students will need to pre-select each other as roommates prior to selecting a room or apartment. (Instructions regarding this part of the process will be distributed with lottery numbers and lottery times March 2013.) When doing so, the online housing system will confirm that all roommates have selected one another--and students now become a group. Only the student with the lowest (best) lottery number and earliest lottery time will need to select housing for the group via the Online Housing Selection system.
If you are studying abroad during this process and your lottery number will carry a group to select housing, you can select for your group via "MyHousing" in CNAV, or you may select a proxy here on campus to select housing for your group. Lottery numbers are not transferable, and in the event where you need to choose a proxy because you cannot select housing for your group at the appointed time, you must email Sharon Fissel.
As mentioned previously, the Office of Residence Life will be publishing additional information about the Online Housing Selection process in March 2013. When you receive this information via your campus email, you will also be able to log unto CNAV/MyHousing to view your lottery number AND a lottery time. You will be able to log on and look at the available housing and feel connected to the process even if you are halfway around the world. Of course, your lottery time will be on Gettysburg time and you will have to adjust to your location.
Should you have any questions, please contact Sharon Fissel, Assistant Director of Residence Life for Housing.
