A: Current residents are assigned first during the spring semester. Beginning in mid-May, assignments are made for new applicants. New applicants to learning communities are assigned first and then all other new students are assigned based on the priority date. This is the date the housing contract/application and fee were received.
A: New, first-year, undergraduate students may only request a neighborhood. Neighborhoods are geographical groupings of residence halls and on-campus apartments where services such as libraries, computer labs, food courts, convenience stores, and dining rooms are located nearby. Returning residents, graduate, and transfer students may request specific buildings.
A: All the neighborhoods offer basically the same services. Which is best for you depends on your interests. Read about the learning communities and neighborhoods and request those which are the most attractive to you.
A: Yes. Roommate requests must be mutual, from members of the same gender, and received by May 1, 2013. The requested roommate's IU network ID and full name are required to complete the housing contract and application.
To be assigned to one of the LCs requiring additional approval both roommates must be approved for the community and the assignment preferences of the pair must be identical. In LCs that do not require additional approval, if one roommate requests a LC and the other does not and both list "roommate" as the first preference, the pair will be assigned to the LC.
We don't guarantee that we can honor all roommate requests, so if you really want to be together, be sure your preferences match and list roommates first on your preferences.
A: Room and board rates are set by the Board of Trustees each year. Costs vary depending on residence hall amenities, type of room, and learning community fees . Visit the current rate table for current cost information.
