HOUSING SELECTION PROCESS 2024 – 2025

  1. All rooms on campus will be available except those set aside as needed for medical accommodation, incoming first year students (first year floors, and sections on floors), and other needs determined by the Residence Life and Commuter Services Office.
  2. Students will be grouped according to Earned Credit hours completed by the end of the fall 2023 semester. Any current seniors anticipating a need for housing the following year, for example, fifth year seniors, must get prior approval from Residence Life, as well as the Registrar.
    1. Group A: 80+ Earned Credit Hours or more
    2. Group B: 50-79 Earned Credit Hours
    3. Group C: 30-49 Earned Credit Hours
    4. Group D: 0-29 Earned Credit Hours
  3. Groupings will be announced via eRezLife on February 26, 2024. All questions must be received via email to the Residence Life and Commuter Services Office by March 11, 2024 at 5 pm.
  4. A student’s lottery number will be determined based on the Earned Credit hour total that students have at the end of the Fall 2023 semester. Students can find their Earned Credit hour total by looking at their academic transcript in my.hiram.edu. 
  5. If a student is signing up for a double room on campus, the roommate with the higher number “pulls in” roommate(s) with a lower selection number.
  6. Rooms must be filled to capacity.
