Fall Semester

If you are planning to go on a study away trip during the fall semester, you have the following options to secure a room assignment for the spring semester:

  • Find a student to fill-in

      Find another student to take your room so that you don't lose your room assignment. If you're planning to enroll in a study away program in the fall, you might consider making arrangements with a student who is going on a study away trip in the spring. That way, you'll each have a room assignment when you're on campus. Find a student through Roommate Finder on OrgSync.

  • Wait for an assignment

      Wait to see which rooms are available after the housing lottery is complete. You do not need to participate in the housing lottery. Instead, our office will contact you via email in October to begin the room assignment process. If you make arrangements with one or more students for the spring, contact us.

  • Guarantee your space

      Participate in the housing lottery and guarantee your space. You will be responsible for 75 percent of the cost. Our office will also have the option to use your space for other students while you're gone. Complete our form to guarantee your room assigment.

Spring Semester

If you are planning to go on a study away trip during the spring semester, you have the following options to secure a room assignment for the fall semester:

Partial Semester Trips

If you are planning to participate in a study away trip that lasts more than eight weeks but does not cover the entire semester, you will be responsible for the semester's full room rate. You should participate in the housing lottery to secure your room assignment for the full academic year.

However, if you will be on campus for less than eight weeks because of a study away trip, you will be responsible for 75 percent of the semester's room rate. You can minimize your costs by choosing a room with lower costs. ​You will also need to participate in the housing lottery.
