      2. VILLAGE RESIDENT LOTTERY - Current Village residents who did not squat a townhouse during squatters lottery.
      3. VILLAGE MAJORITY LOTTERY - Matched groups made up of more than 50% current Village residents. Specifically, matched groups of 6 including at least 4 current Village residents and matched groups of 4 including 3 current Village residents.

PRIORITY WITHIN THE LOTTERIES

For all 4 lotteries, priority will be established as follows:

      • Class of 2014 members will be assigned the lowest (best) lottery numbers
      • Class of 2015 members will be assigned next best lottery numbers etc.

Lottery numbers are generated randomly by computer software. Each Room Selection participant will receive his/her own individual lottery number and Start Time for selection. So, members of a matched group will all have different lottery numbers and Start Times.  However, one person can make the selection for all matched "mates;" so, the person with the best lottery number (and earliest Start Time) should go into myHousing.oswego.edu and complete the room selection for the group.
