If students are being required to live in University Housing residence halls, is there any reason why I should be completing the contract early? Isn’t housing guaranteed?

There is an advantage to completing your contract earlier. Because our room assignment process is both random and by preferences, submitting a contract by the first lottery date (usually late-Spring) will give you the best chance at getting one of your preferred room assignments.

University Housing has run out of spaces in past years. If you want to live on campus, completing your contract before the priority deadline is the only way to make sure you have a space in University Housing.
