Returning Student Housing Assignment Process

Here's an easy step-by-step guide...

STEP #1: First, and most importantly, read the 2020-2021 Returning Student Housing Assignment Process (HAP) Instructions. This document describes how the HAP works and provides all the important information you need to know as you sign up for 2020-2021 on-campus housing.

STEP #2: You need to read the 2020-2021 Residence Area Occupancy Agreement (RAOA) in its entirety including Further Terms and Conditions. After reading this document, complete the on-line form.

STEP #3: If you are seeking housing in BT or HH next year, click on the preference form below to complete it. With this form, you can request your residence area preference, your room type preference and roommate preference. Complete the Preference Form no later than 4:00 pm on Friday, April 17th.

STEP #4: If you are seeking housing in the Flagg Townhouse Apartment Complex next year...... First things first, you need to form a group with 4 or 6 individuals in it. If you need assistance forming a group, please contact the RPS office.

Once you have a group of 4 or 6 formed, decide who your group spokesperson is going to be. Pick a really responsible person who checks their College e-mail account and phone messages daily because if we have any questions or issues regarding your group, this is the person we are going to contact.

Next, click on the link below and you will be able to check out the apartments that are available to your size group in the coming year. Each group should communicate about where you would like to live within the Complex.

On to the completion of your preference form.....Remember, your group only needs to complete one on-line preference form. The form requires you to do two important things: 1) tell us who is in your group and what bedroom each person will live in and 2) rank order your apartment location preferences ("1" being your first choice, "2" your second, and so on....). Please complete the on-line TH preference form no later than 4:00 pm on Friday, April 17th.

STEP #5: Don't forget that you must clear all outstanding charges on your student account and register for Fall 2020 classes no later than Friday, April 24th.

STEP #6: Assignments to specific rooms and/or apartments will be made during the weeks of April 20th and April 27th. Townhouse assignments will be sent to each group's spokesperson via e-mail. Berkshire Towers and Hoosac Hall assignments will be selected virtually. More information about this process will be announced later.

STEP #7: As always, if you have read all the information provided above and have any questions or concerns, please contact the RPS office by writing us an e-mail at rps@mcla.edu or calling 413-662-5249.
