The Village townhouse community is for students of at least junior status who have lived on campus at Oswego for a significant portion of their undergraduate experience. Specifically, to take occupancy in The Village, residents must have at least 57 earned credits and have fulfilled the requirement for semesters lived on campus at SUNY Oswego based on their status (as determined by the Admissions Office) when they first enrolled at SUNY Oswego (3 regular [fall or spring] semesters if they first enrolled as Freshmen/First Year students; 1 regular semester if they first enrolled as Transfer students).

PRIORITY FOR VILLAGE ROOM SELECTION

Village Room Selection Participants will choose townhouses in this order:

    1. VILLAGE RESIDENT LOTTERY - Current Village residents requesting other current village residents only.
    2. 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 3 lotteries, priority will be established as follows:

        • Class of 2018 members will be assigned the lowest (best) lottery numbers
        • Class of 2019 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.

    Students can view their housing assignment info at MyHousing.oswego.edu.
