In the Waiting List, priority is given to students whose housing is not available for winter due to construction.

Reassignments within the same category of housing (e.g. to a different type of apartment within single grad housing) are made through the Continuous Assignments process after the demand from students without housing has been met, and are not included in these numbers.

Assignments were offered per the assignment priority system and the waiting list reassignment process. Guaranteed students are considered for assignment first, students seeking reassignment second for the reasons listed above (new students before continuing), followed by students who are not living in Student Housing (new students before continuing).

Single Students: In the Waiting List assignment round, all students who were willing to live anywhere were assigned.

Couples without Children: There were a limited number of apartments available, so we were only able to accommodate the students seeking reassignment due to construction and a small number of the first-year students. We were not able to accommodate many of the first year students and the only continuing students assigned were part of a move for construction or a medical accommodation.

Students with Children: We were able to accommodate all of the matriculated students. We were not able to accommodate a small number of the nonmatriculated students

Winter Quarter Continuous Assignments

Additional vacancies become available after the Waiting List. Here are the numbers of students assigned during the Continuous Assignment process.

In the Waiting List, priority is given to students seeking reassignments for the following reasons.

  • students whose housing is not available for winter due to construction
  • students living in autumn-only spaces in Oak Creek
  • students living in housing who are applying for Students with Children Housing

Reassignments within the same category of housing (e.g. to a different type of apartment within single grad housing) are made through the Continuous Assignments process after the demand from students without housing has been met and are not included in these numbers.

Assignments were offered per the assignment priority system and the waiting list reassignment process. Students seeking reassignment for the reasons listed above are considered for assignment first (new students before continuing) followed by guaranteed first-year students, high priority first-year students, coterminal students, continuing students who have not used all of their housing priority years, continuing students who have used all of their years and finally nonmatriculated students. Within each priority assignment group, students are assigned by Lottery number.

Single Students In the Waiting List assignment round, we able to accommodate all of the students seeking reassignment, the guaranteed and high priority first-year students and half of the coterminal students who were willing to live anywhere. There were not enough cancellations to assign some coterminal students or the continuing students. The only continuing students assigned were either law students with law priority to Munger, exempt staff or medical accommodations.

Couples without Children: There were a limited number of apartments available in the Waiting List, so we were only able to accommodate guaranteed students and a limited number of high priority students. The only continuing students assigned were exempt staff or medical accommodations.

Students with Children: We able to accommodate all of the students seeking reassignment as well as the guaranteed and high priority first-year students who were willing to live anywhere. We were not able to accommodate the continuing students who are not currently living on campus.

References to students seeking assignment apply to students who do not currently have a housing assignment for 2015-16. Students seeking reassignment refers to students who were assigned in the Lottery and are seeking a reassignment to a higher assignment preference within the same housing category.

Single Students: In the Waiting List assignment round most new incoming graduate students, who were willing to live in any residence (including the off-campus subsidized housing), were assigned. There are still a number of guaranteed and high priority new incoming graduate waiting for housing. Most of the first year students still waiting either limited their choices or applied after the first round deadline. The only coterminal and continuing graduate students who were assigned to housing in this round were special exemptions for students with documented medical needs or law students with a priority to Munger. About 18% of the students seeking reassignments received a higher preference.

Couples without Children: In the Waiting List assignment round a number of the new incoming graduate students who were willing to live in any residence, including all the off-campus subsidized housing were assigned. There are still a number of guaranteed and high priority new incoming graduate student waiting for housing. The only coterminal and continuing graduate students who were assigned to housing in this round were special exemptions for students with documented medical needs or law students with a priority to Munger. About 39% of the students seeking reassignments received a higher preference.

Students with Children: In the Waiting List assignment round all new graduate students were assigned. One-third of continuing students were also assigned.  About 33% of the students seeking reassignments received a higher preference.

2015-16 Graduate Housing Lottery

In the 2015-16 Lottery there were a total of 6,344 students who applied for Graduate Housing. That represents an increase of 353 applications over the previous year, offsetting the gains we achieved through the construction of new graduate housing in the Kennedy Graduate Residences, which opened last year. After the first round there were 747 new guaranteed students who were not assigned. These students are still guaranteed housing by the first day of classes, if they are willing to live anywhere. The guaranteed students will have priority to any additional vacancies on campus as well as 500 subsidized off-campus spaces that will be offered in the July Waiting List round. There were also 196 coterminal students, 440 continuing graduate students with housing priority years remaining, and 31 continuing graduate students without priority years who were are not guaranteed and have not been offered housing.

Single Graduate Housing

All single students who applied for graduate housing by the deadline were assigned a random application number from 0001 to 3500. (Current students living in Single Graduate Student Housing who renewed their housing contracts were not given application numbers.) Students who requested to be in a group were given a common number.
New graduate students who apply by the first-round Lottery deadline and select that they are willing to live anywhere on campus are guaranteed housing. Munger, Schwab, and Escondido Village Premium Studios in the Kennedy Graduate Residences are not automatically assigned out of the final choice “assign me anywhere on campus” due to their price. These options were only assigned to students who specifically listed them on their applications.

New Graduate Students: 

  • 153 of those assigned were Graduate School of Business assignments to the Schwab Residential Center.
  • 15 of those assigned were exempt medical accommodations or staff assignments.
  • 622 of the unassigned new students are still guaranteed because they indicated that they were willing to live anywhere.
  • 42 of the unassigned new students listed restricted choices and so are no longer guaranteed. They will still maintain a high priority for assignment.

Coterminal Students: 

  • 40 of those assigned were exempt medical accommodations or staff assignments.

Continuing Graduate Students:
