The Housing and Residence Life Office determines room assignments and roommates through a computer-based lottery system.
Furman has a four-year residency requirement, but there are situations where students may seek off-campus housing or living arrangements.
If your student is planning to study away for a full semester, your student has several options to consider when it comes to obtaining a room assignment for the semester they're going to be at Furman.
If your student is interested in seeking a new room assignment or roommate, your student may submit a request to our office.
Each year, we have approximately 60-80 students on a waiting list for student housing. Our office will assign rooms to these students in August after we are able to determine which students are not returning to the university. By waiting until August, we can be more successful in keeping waiting list students in roommate pairs and assigning them to preferred buildings.
