Returning Students Housing :: ONONDAGA DETAILS - Step 4b

4b. ONONDAGA Suite Selection

Students who are not required to live on campus next year should ONLY participate in Room Selection (Village Housing Selection and Residence Hall Room Selection) if they are 100% sure they want to live on campus for the entire upcoming academic year. Participation in Room Selection GUARANTEES the student on-campus housing for the upcoming academic year; however, it ELIMINATES the student's option to live off campus for the entire upcoming academic year.

There are 3 ways to potentially choose a suite in Onondaga for next year. Definitions and links to instructions for each part of the process are below:

  • Onondaga Squatters - Room Selection participants who wish to squat an Onondaga suite must be in matched groups of 6; one member of the group must currently live in the suite to be squatted.  These groups will confirm their intent to squat an Onondaga suite during the Squatter Confirmation process (March 27-29, 2018).
  • Onondaga In-Hall Lottery - Matched groups of 6 that include at least 1 current Onondaga resident are eligible to participate in the Onondaga In-Hall Lottery. (March 27-29, 2018)
  • Onondaga Change-Hall Lottery - Matched groups of 6 that do not include any current Onondaga residents participate in the Onondaga Change-Hall Lottery. (March 27-29, 2018)
