The self-selection process allows you to choose your room allocation as an upper-year student living in residence for 2022-23. A self-selection window will open for students who were successful in the upper-year residence lottery, where room selection will be on a first-come, first-serve basis.  

We will send information the week of February 28th with the self-selection date and time and specific instructions for the process of selecting your room. The Residence Admissions team may have to place students in their rooms in certain circumstances manually. 

Self-selection is scheduled to be held the week of March 7th, 2022. All students who were successful in the upper year lottery will receive a self-selection date and time the week of February 28th, 2022. 

This year the upper-year community will be located in Watts Hall. 

The self-selection platform will be hosted in the Residence and Dining Portal
