Answer: The Three Semester Housing program allows students who plan to live on campus in the Fall 2015, Spring 2016 and Summer 2016 to select a single housing assignment in which to remain for all three semesters. 

This housing option is only available in this semester sequence.  No other combination of semesters is eligible for Three Semester Housing.

Edwards/Rodgers will not be available for selection. 

Question:  How is the housing selection order established?

Answer:  Students are sorted by their class year.  Then the number of completed credits and the student’s G.P.A are the two biggest factors in determining selection priority. 

Question:  What do I need to do before I select?

Answer:  Once your deposit is made, you will receive an email directing you to complete your housing agreement online.  You must complete a housing agreement before you will be entered into the selection process. 

You will then need to organize a group of students you would like to live with for the academic year.    

Question:  How big does my group have to be?

Answer:  While suites vary in size, the most common sized suite we have is 6 people.  We strongly recommend that all students aim to form groups of 6.  An email with specific suite sizes will be sent out prior to selection.

Answer:  Students may request a room change, however, no requests will be considered until after all students have had an opportunity to select.  Requests will be reviewed on or after April 1.   

  1. How Does COOP Affect My Housing?

Question:  I am going to be on coop outside of the Boston area for the fall.  Should I put my housing deposit in for the spring 2016 semester now?

Answer:  No. You do not need to submit a deposit now.  Beginning in October 2015 we will begin accepting deposits for the Spring 2016 semester. 

Question:  I am supposed to be on coop in the fall, but I’m not sure if I will be near Boston or not.  Should I put a deposit in now?

Answer:  Yes.  Please make sure you submit a deposit for the Fall 2015 semester.  If you ultimately leave the Boston area for coop, you can request your deposit be refunded, or be applied toward Spring 2016 housing.  

Question:  I need housing for Fall 2015, but will be on coop spring 2016.  Do I get part of my housing deposit refunded for the spring?

Answer:  No. The housing deposit you make for the fall is applied in full toward your fall housing charges.  There is no partial refund if you leave for the spring semester. 

  1. ADVICE

Question:  What advice does the Office of Housing and Residential Life offer to students heading into the selection process?

Answer:  We have several pieces of advice for students prior to selection:

  1. 1.      Please speak to your requested suitemates to make sure you are all in agreement about where you want to live.  Decide ahead of time who in the group will be direct roommates. 
  2. 2.      Check your WIT email often for updates on the selection process
  3. 3.      Always have a backup plan.  Students often set their sights on a specific building and suite configuration.  In the event that that space is not available when your selection time comes, always discuss with your group what your second and third choices would be. 

 

Detailed information about the actual selection process will be sent to your WIT email account over the next few weeks. Please check your email regularly.
