Village Room Selection Lotteries

Village Room Selection2014 - 2015

4 "LOTTERIES"

  1. SQUATTERS "LOTTERY" - Matched groups of current Village residents who are filling a townhouse that at least 1 member of the group currently occupies.
  2. VILLAGE RESIDENT LOTTERY - Current Village residents who do not squat.
  3. 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.
  4. GENERAL VILLAGE LOTTERY - All other Village Room Selection participants. A participant is one who completes Step 1 of the Housing Selection Process (pays the $100 Housing Deposit and accepts the terms of The Village Housing Agreement).

Current Village residents who choose to participate in Lottery #1, #2 or #3 are guaranteed a space in The Village for next year. Current Village residents who choose to participate in the GENERAL VILLAGE LOTTERY are not guaranteed a space in The Village for next year.

 

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.

Each Room Selection participant will receive his/her own individual lottery number and Start Time for each lottery.  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 mate with the best lottery number (and, therefore, earliest Start Time) should go into MyHousing and choose housing for the group.

Room Selection participants who do not have a 2014 - 2015 room assignment after each lottery will receive a new lottery number and Start Time for each subsequent lottery until they choose an assignment or the Room Selection process ends, whichever comes first.
