In the Waiting List priority is given to students seeking reassignments for the following reasons.

  • students who currently live in Student Housing and are seeking new housing in a different category due to a change in marital or family status
  • students whose housing is not available for winter due to construction

Reassignments within the same category of housing (e.g. to a different type of apartment within single grad housing) are made through the Continuous Assignments process after the demand from students without housing has been met and are not included in these numbers.

Assignments were offered per the assignment priority system and the waiting list reassignment process. Guaranteed students are considered for assignment first, students seeking reassignment second for the reasons listed about (new students before continuing), followed by students who are not living in Student Housing (new students before continuing).

Single Students: In the Waiting List assignment round, all students who were willing to live anywhere were assigned.

Couples without Children: There were a limited number of apartments available so we were only able to accommodate the students seeking reassignment due to construction and a small number of the first-year students who have reapplied due to a change in family status. We were not able to accommodate many of the students seeking reassignment or the students who are not currently living in Student Housing.

Students with Children: We were able to accommodate all of the matriculated students applying for the two-bedroom options. We were not able to accommodate many of the nonmatriculated students as well as two matriculated students looking for three-bedroom apartments.

References to students seeking assignment apply to students who do not currently have a housing assignment for 2014-15. Students seeking reassignment refers to students who were assigned in the Lottery and are seeking a reassignment to a higher assignment preference within the same housing category.

Single Students: In the Waiting List assignment round all of the new incoming graduate students, who were willing to live in any residence (including all the off-campus subsidized housing), were assigned. Many coterminal students were assigned to the off-campus subsidized housing. The only continuing students who were assigned to housing in this round were special exemptions for students with documented medical needs or law students with a priority to Munger. About 40% of the students seeking reassignments received a higher preference.

Couples without Children: In the Waiting List assignment round all of the new incoming graduate students and coterminal students who were willing to live in any residence, including all the off-campus subsidized housing were assigned. A small number of continuing students were assigned to off-campus subsidized housing in this round. About 62% of the students seeking reassignments received a higher preference.

Students with Children: In the Waiting List assignment round all the new graduate students and continuing students who had priority year remaining were assigned. About 57% of the students seeking reassignments received a higher preference.
