Room Selection Information

Admitted Incoming Students:  Once you deposit, you will be sent an email with your Campus Web login information. You will need to sign into you Campus Web account and follow the instructions to answer questions related to your preferences for housing. 

Studing Abroad or Currently on Leave of Absence: You can either have a friend pull you into their room by listing you as their prefered roommate on their housing forms and then please follow up with an email to with confirmation that you'd like to live with them. If you don't have someone to pull you in just email with your preferences and we'll email you a housing assignment.

Current Students: Each spring, students who intend to continue their studies at Warren Wilson for the following year are given the chance to reclaim their current rooms or they can enter our Room Lottery to select a new one. Following are some basic instructions on the how, when and where. Read ALL instructions. Then talk to your roommate. Don't assume that they already know your plans. They may have plans that conflict with yours! All forms related to room selection, except for day student forms, can be picked up from your current RD.

I. Housing intent Information

Every current residential student will need to fill out an online HOUSING INTENT FORM. This was emailed to you from your current RD. This is where you will indicate if you plan to reclaim, plan to enter the lottery, or if you will not be needing housing for the fall.


II. Reclaim Information

HOUSING CONTRACT FORM- must sign and return to RD if reclaiming current room or suite (due March 31)

III. Requesting a Medical Single

Applications to request medical singles need to be renewed each spring for the upcoming fall semester. Please print the Medical Single request form below and have your medical practitioner complete it and return it to Deb Braden, in Dodge House. Medical singles will still be charged the single room rate in most cases, some exceptions may be considered. Medical singles are not guarenteed but those who submit the request form with medical rational will recieve priority.


IV. Application for a Suite if seeking to move into Schafer or Village suites
The Student Life Committee will accept applications from, and give priority to, groups who wish to present an application with a theme proposed. A theme proposal would be a group of like-minded individuals who wish to have some sort of theme or particular area of interest for their suite. You must also recruit a faculty or staff memeber to be a learning partner for your suite.  Applicants will be notified prior to the registration deadline if they have or have not had their proposal accepted. It is not, however, a requirement to have an theme proposal to apply for a suite, we'll reserve a few suites where seniority will be given priority.

If you need help connecting with sutiemates to fill your suite there will be a Roommate Social on March 27th at 7:30 in Sage Cafe!

THEME HOUSING SUITE APPLICATION - due April 2nd to Housing Office in Dodge (2nd flr)

V. Room Selection ("Lottery") Information
The Room Lottery will occur on April 11th from 4-10pm in Cannon Lounge. If you wish to participate please attend at that time that corresponds with your lottery number. Lottery numbers will be distributed no later than April 5th. Once you've been given your lottery number, you will be notified of approximate arrival time in order to reduce your wait. At that time you will select a room for next semester from the available spaces. Current class standings, not projected ones,will be utilized to determine priority of lottery numbers. You and your roommate should come to the Room Lottery during the earlier of your two times and select your room for the fall together at that time. If you are unable to connect with a roommate you'll be able to select any remaining rooms at the end of the night around 9:30pm and then you'll be assigned a random roommate over the summer.

If you need help connecting with roommates or suitemates there will be a Roommate Social on March 27th at 7:30 in Sage Cafe!

 VI. The "Rules"

A. If you are not reclaiming your present room you must attend the lottery unless you are moving in with someone reclaiming.  Anyone who has a scheduling conflict with the lottery may have someone other than themselves, or the roommate, designated to select for them with a Housing Contract Form signed by the resident.

B. Those who sign up for rooms in Wellness and Shepard agree not to smoke, not to consume alcohol, non-prescription drugs, or prescribed ones in a non-prescribed manner in or near the premises, or in any excess fashion, while residing there. Those who choose Village B, Korevec (a designated "Quiet" dorm) or Eco will follow all dorm-decided practices.

C. You may not sign up with a roommate who will be gone on a semester-long trip for the fall.

VII. Private rooms

All private rooms, including those granted for documented medically-related reasons, will be an additional $775 per semester for the 2012 school year. Students who have been approved for medical reasons will have the first choice of these rooms, which will be guaranteed as private rooms.

IX. Requesting a non-medical private room
Students who want to be considered for a (non-medical) single room should first select a roommate for next year, then notify Housing that they wish to be placed on the single room waiting list. Once all students for the fall are placed, those on the wait list will be offered any remaining single rooms. Reminder- most single rooms are in Village suites so if you want a higher chance of getting a single room sign up with a suite.
