GLOSSARY

Terms to Know Guaranteed Status GUAR ANTEED • The Office of Admissions gives a threeyear housing guarantee to students who pay their deposits by May 1st in order to enter the university as fall-term freshmen. In addition, OAFA guarantees a certain number of Spring Freshmen every year, who then have guarantees for their remaining two years on campus. • A continuing guarantee depends on you meeting all applicable deadlines each year, and not canceling your housing for an unapproved reason.

4

• So: you will be Guaranteed next year if you are currently guaranteed this year, and you are a rising sophomore or a rising junior, and you meet the February 1st application deadline.

NON-GUAR ANTEED Any student who does not meet the criteria above is non-guaranteed. This means you are not able to retain you room, participate in general room selection, or apply for a suite/ apartment-style room. Instead, you must apply for the housing waitlist.


Two Types of Room Selection

Numbers to Know

GENER AL ROOM SELECTION

HOUSING SELECTION LOT TERY NUMBER

All guaranteed students receive a Housing Selection Lottery Number (defined below). This corresponds to a time on the selection schedule on page 30-31, at which point you will go online and will be able to see and select from all available rooms, everywhere on campus. We call this General Room Selection, or GRS.

SUITE/APARTMENT-ST YLE APPLICATION & SELECTION • You can also choose to apply for suite or apartment-style housing. A suite is any group of rooms that also includes some combination of a kitchenette, living room, and/or dining room, and at least one private bath, in a residence hall. Apartment-style buildings have the above, including private kitchens, in buildings without Residence Life. Suites and apartments are given out based on a bid process, described on page 10. • Bids are awarded based on a combination of lottery number, group size, and number of years in housing.

Every guaranteed student is given a Housing Selection Lottery Number. The number will be used to determine bid winners in the case of Suite/Apt-Style Selection, and otherwise will correspond to a date and time at which point you can log online and pick from all available rooms.

PERSONALIZED ROOMM ATE PIN • Each student needs to set their own Roommate PIN through my.pitt.edu (instructions on page 18). You will give this PIN to your roommates (either by listing it on your Suite/Apt Style Bid form, or just by telling your friend in the case of GRS. Your roommate will then use it to pull you in and book you in any open spaces within the room. • Panther Central cannot see the Roommate PIN. If you forget what you chose, you’ll just need to log back in and enter a new one. We cannot reset it or retrieve your old PIN.

• If you are not awarded a bid for a suite or apartment, you’ll participate in GRS instead, as if you had never chosen to try for a suite/apt.

Processes and Definitions 6


PROCESSES AND DEFINITIONS

Housing Eligibility and Guarantee A M I ELIGIBLE TO PARTICIPATE IN THE HOUSING APPLICATION PROCESS FOR SELECTION? You are eligible if you meet all of the requirements below: • You’ve completed the 2018-2019 housing application by February 1, 2018. • You are a current and continuing full-time undergraduate student. • You are currently a guaranteed rising sophomore or rising junior living in one of our residence halls or apartment-style accommodations. • You have no outstanding financial obligations to the University or other holds against your student account. * Don’t meet this criteria but want to live on campus? See page 8.

HOW DO I ENSURE THAT MY HOUSING GUAR ANTEE IS M AINTAINED FOR NEX T YEAR? All housing guarantees are pending completion of the 2018-2019 Housing Application and dependent on how students were admitted to the University of Pittsburgh as a first year student. Prospective freshmen who are admitted through Admissions and Financial Aid for the fall term, pay their $300 enrollment fee and their $325 housing deposit

by their designated due dates are guaranteed on-campus housing. This guarantee is good for three years, provided that all housing application and deposit deadlines for each subsequent year have been met. The Housing Information e-mail states whether or not you are a guaranteed student. If you believe you are entitled to a pending housing guarantee but find your Housing Information e-mail does not state such, contact Panther Central immediately. To keep your housing guarantee valid for the next year (2018-19) you must meet the housing application processing and deposit deadline of February 1, 2018. Other students with a pending housing guarantee, include full-academic scholars, Resident Assistants for 2018-19, fullscholarship athletes, and students with physical disabilities. Greek Housing Students can gain a guarantee of housing to their specific Greek organization housing unit. This guarantee is limited to the total number of accommodations in the unit. In order to obtain this guarantee, your president must notify Panther Central by February 1, 2018 of your intent to reside in the unit. Your housing deposit and application must be completed by February 1, 2018.

HOW DO I PROCESS MY HOUSING APPLICATION?

WHAT IF I DON’T HAVE A GUAR ANTEE?

Panther Central emails detailed housing application instructions to every student through their pitt.edu email address. The first step of the process is to complete and submit the online housing application, which includes the payment of the $325 housing deposit, by February 1, 2018. There are no exceptions, nor will any extensions be provided. Failure to meet this date will result in the loss of any and all guarantees.

We encourage any senior or other nonguaranteed student who would like oncampus housing to submit their housing application, including the payment of the housing deposit, by the due date of February 1, 2018. By submitting your application with deposit payment by the due date, you will be automatically entered onto our electronic housing waitlist, which is processed on a firstcome, first-served basis.

If you receive a full scholarship or a full financial aid package, you may have your $325 housing deposit deferred. In order to defer the deposit, you must submit verification of your full scholarship or full aid package to Panther Central.

Once the online Housing Selection and Retention processes for guaranteed students are complete, Panther Central will determine availability of beds and will contact you via your pitt.edu email account or personal phone number. Please note: the phone number we have on file is sent to us by the Office of the University Registrar. You will have an opportunity to review your contact information when completing the housing application. Please contact the Registrar if your contact information needs to be updated.

By completing the Housing Application, you are agreeing to a two-term housing contract for both Fall 2018 and Spring 2019.

As mentioned, students will be contacted by Panther Central on a first-come, first-served basis. Your housing deposit is fully refundable if we are not able to find a bed for you, or if you choose to cancel your housing application prior to being assigned. If you have any questions about the nonguaranteed student process, please contact Panther Central.

PROCESSES AND DEFINITIONS

Suite and Apartment-Style Selection SUITE AND APARTMENT-ST YLE SELECTION To be eligible for Suite and Apartment-style Selection, the number of students must equal the designated suite or apartment capacity. A student may only participate as a member of one group. Any student found to be a part of more than one group, including a Living Learning Community, voids Suite Selection for the members of all associated groups. Each group is required to complete a Suite and Apartment-style Application and to nominate a group representative on the application. The Suite and Apartment-style Application will be available at Panther Central on January 8, 2018, and are due back at Panther Central no later than February 5, 2018. *Important: If students currently living together as part of a suite or apartment want to retain the suite or apartment but no longer want to live together, all students in the suite or apartment must follow the normal Suite and Apartment-style Selection process.

A bid process is used to determine Suite and Apartment-style Selection based upon the information provided on the Suite and Apartment-style Applications. Each student of the suite or apartment group is given points for their academic class as follows: rising juniors = 3 points, rising sophomores = 2 points. 10

Panther Central determines the selection order among the groups based upon the highest bid total. The lowest Housing Selection Lottery Number in each group is used to break ties among groups. On February 15, 2018, at 1p.m., Panther Central will post a schedule at the office and online at pc.pitt.edu indicating when each group is scheduled for Suite and Apartment-style Selection. Suite and Apartment-style Selection takes place online on February 27- March1, 2018. Group representatives must be prepared to make suite, apartment, room, and meal plan selections for all students. Guaranteed students who are unable to participate in the Suite and Apartment-style Selection process may participate in Room Selection with their appropriate class.

SUITE AND APARTMENT-ST YLE RETENTION In order to retain your apartment or suite, at least 50 percent of the current residents must return next fall and they must all have a housing guarantee. Returning suite-mates and apartment-mates will be responsible for recruiting additional persons necessary for 100 percent occupancy. All persons must


have a valid housing guarantee at the time of application. If these criteria are met, then you can retain your suite or apartment by following the Suite and Apartment-style Retention process. The University reserves the right to designate currently occupied suites/apartments as unavailable for Retention.

SUITE AND APARTMENT-ST YLE RETENTION PROCESS Your group must complete the Room/Suite and Apartment-style Retention Application, which includes but is not limited to each student’s PeopleSoft number, meal plan choice for next year, and the Personalized Housing PIN. The application must be submitted to Panther Central no later than Friday, February 5, 2018. Each group must assign a group representative on the application who will be responsible for submitting the Room/Suite and Apartment-style Retention Application. This involves returning the completed application to Panther Central by Friday, February 5, 2018. Panther Central will then notify the group representative of the retention status of the group, e.g. confirm whether or not they are eligible to retain their desired room, suite, or apartment.

Individual cancellations after Retention/ Selection could invalidate assignments for the remaining occupants. Any suite or apartment occupant canceling after April 15, 2018, will forfeit the $325 housing deposit. Panther Central retains the right to fill suite or apartment vacancies.

WHEN AND WHERE DOES SUITE AND APARTMENT- ST YLE RETENTION TAKE PL ACE? Retention takes place online Thursday, February 8, 2018. Only the group representative is permitted access to the online selection site. Group representatives must be prepared to make both the suite selection and the individual Room Selections for all suitemates, as well as the meal plans for all the suite-mates. To assist the group representative, use the completed copy of the Suite and Apartment-style Retention Application to identify meal plan selection.
