WHAT IS HOUSING SELECTION? 

University Housing residents must participate in the Housing Selection process for on-campus housing for the 2013-2014 academic year. Students use an online system to submit their application, building and room choices, and roommate selection (if applicable).

 Students choose an “option” based on their desired living choice for the 2013-2014 academic year.

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE IN HOUSING SELECTION? Housing Selection is an important process for current residents to select housing options for the upcoming academic year. Registered off-campus students (spring 2013) may complete a housing application via MyPack Portal; they will be assigned after new students. Applications from off-campus students should be completed by May 1.

HOW DO I SIGN UP FOR HOUSING SELECTION? Housing Selection is a two-part process: updating your housing application and completing your room assignment.  Log on to MyPack portal. Under Student Services, select University Housing>Current Student> click on Housing Selection.  The screens will walk you through the process. Be sure to complete all screens: verifying/changing lifestyle questions; selecting a room/roommate; accepting the Agreement; taking the survey.  Non-matching lifestyle responses will display in RED.  If you do not have a specific roommate in mind, please sign up in rooms that have another individual already assigned, instead of assigning yourself to an open double room. Students who assign themselves into open rooms may be consolidated to accommodate roommate pairs.  If you have questions when completing the process, Housing Assignments staff members will be available at the Housing office, 1112 Pullen Hall, from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. (M-F). Students may also call (515-2440) or email housing@ncsu.edu with questions. Before starting your application, we encourage you to review the following links:  Housing Cost (http://www.ncsu.edu/housing/costs.php)  Termination Charges (http://www.ncsu.edu/housing/cancel.php)  Agreements (http://www.ncsu.edu/housing/agreements.php) 3


HOW DO I REQUEST A ROOMMATE? 

 

If you have a roommate you’d like to live with, the Housing Selection process will allow you to enter your roommate(s) choice(s). Keep in mind that the room/unit you are requesting must have the appropriate number of vacancies for the invited roommate(s). All roommates must be eligible to participate in the Housing Selection process. The student requesting the roommate(s) must assign themselves first and then enter the name of the invited roommate(s) to the appropriate bed to reserve the space(s). Once the invitation is made, an email will be sent to the invited roommate(s) with instructions and a link to confirm or reject the invitation. It is very important that the invited roommate complete/update the Housing application in order to finish the process. If an invited roommate does not confirm the assignment by the end of the option deadline, the invitation is canceled. The student(s) will have 48 hours to locate another person to fill the vacancy. If the vacancy is not filled, the space becomes available for students signing up in other options. Accepted new freshmen (except in upper-class halls), Co-op, Transfer, and enrolled off-campus students may be invited as a roommate(s).

WHEN DO I SIGN UP? The online process consists of three sections: Wolf Ridge at Centennial; Wolf Village; and the residence halls. Please review the options for each section to determine the option that best addresses your needs. Helpful tip: Keep several building/floor/suite/room options in mind, since assignments are made on a first-come, first-serve basis, and your first choice may not be available.

WHAT IF MY ROOM IS NOT AVAILABLE FOR RENEWAL? (ADMINISTRATIVE MOVES) You have just read the list of unavailable rooms for next year, and you discover your room falls into this category. Now what? Since your room is unavailable, due to no fault of your own, University Housing will place you into a category known as Administrative Moves [OPTION 9].The Administrative Move student may invite a roommate who is not involved in an Administrative Move. The Administrative Move student must be 7


the first one to initiate the assignment and invite the roommate. The invited roommate(s) have until the end of the option to confirm. (2/22/13) The invited roommate will receive an email to accept or reject the invitation. The invited student must complete the process of updating the Housing Application and accepting the Agreement before the assignment is complete. If you fall into the Administrative Move category, and you have several friends who are also in the same situation, you might consider signing up as a group. This will allow you to move as a group (see Administrative Move Group Process below).

ADMINISTRATIVE MOVE GROUP PROCESS To sign up as a group, the following requirements must be met:  Minimum group size is four students. Groups of 6, 8, or 10 students are also welcome.  All students in the group must have the status of Administrative Move.
