Housing Selection Process for Returning Students
The Marquette University Office of Residence Life is pleased to announce our returning student sign-up process for the 2014-15 academic year. This information is intended to introduce the automated selection process to you, as you will be utilizing this process to choose a room, roommate(s), and meal plan for the 2014-15 academic year.
There are several important features you will need to understand in order to successfully select your room assignment for next year. These features are explained in greater detail throughout this handout and are highlighted here for your convenience:
- You will want to determine your first, second, third and even fourth residence hall preference well in advance of your selection time. Doing so will allow you to complete your room selection should your preferences be filled prior to your assignment time.
- In order to maximize the opportunity for roommates to select the hall of their choice, a priority will be given to groups of students who can completely fill their selected room. This prevents individuals or partial groups from filling all of the doubles, triples, and quads.
- Once you assign yourself to a residence hall room, you will be locked into that assignment until the selection process is completed on April 11, 2014.
Residence hall selection is not meant to be stressful, and following a few simple guidelines should make the process a lot easier:
- Pay your $300 housing deposit.
All students must pay a deposit to participate in the room selection process. Payment must be submitted to our office (Carpenter Tower 203) during the weeks of deposit collection (March 3 – 21) ensures computer activation of your assignment time.
- Make sure you have downloaded the housing selection booklet. [coming soon] Read through the details of the process carefully.
- Log into the Campus Living Web site. [Please note: you must use a PC with Internet Explorer or FireFox to access this site.] Verify your assignment time 2-3 days after to ensure that your housing deposit has been activated. Encourage your roommates to do the same.
- A Gender Breakdown by floor is available here on our website.
- Be patient. You may experience slower system response during peak sign-up periods.
- The Office of Residence Life will remain open until 9:30 p.m. on Monday, March 24 to answer any additional questions you may have during the housing sign-up process.
