Returning Student Lottery & Assignment

 

LOTTERY

Housing is not guaranteed.

Everyone who applies by October 31 will take part in a lottery in early November to determine who receives a room assignment and who is placed on the non-guaranteed wait list.

Each student is randomly assigned a lottery number. Enough students/families to fill 25% of the available spaces will be selected to receive a guaranteed room assignment.

You will be sent an email from reslife-housing@udel.edu in early November to inform you of whether you will receive a guaranteed room assignment or if you are on the non-guaranteed wait list.

The chance that you will receive a guaranteed room assignment depends on the number of students requesting the same type of housing.

If you are guaranteed housing, you are bound on the third business day after the email is sent informing you that you are guaranteed. If you cancel, you forfeit your $200 deposit.

If you are placed on the non-guaranteed wait list, you will not be bound until you are offered housing.

ASSIGNMENTS

Roommate assignment for graduate students will be based on the information provided on the Housing Application. We will try to honor but cannot guarantee your preferences. Only same-gender residents will be assigned to a room or apartment unless it is designated as a family unit.

If your name is put on a waiting list, we will notify you by email if and when your status changes. You should not expect to hear anything from us until after the new applicant application period ends in May 2017.

If a vacancy occurs, we will make an assignment from the wait list according to lottery number and the availability of your housing preference.

When you are assigned to a specific apartment or room, you will receive a confirmation email.
