Prospective residents who are unable to be present for the room selection lottery in the spring must appoint a proxy to represent them by notifying the Office of Campus Life prior to the Lottery. (Note: if the student who needs a proxy is abroad, a simple email to the office will suffice.) Proxies are responsible for finding out the lottery numbers of the individuals they represent and for selecting and accepting those individuals’ room assignments. Proxies are also responsible for notifying prospective residents of the room they selected for them.
Individuals who will have a proxy at the lottery should advise the proxy of their room preferences. Prior to the lottery, the Office of Campus Life will hold the individual’s completed residential contract. At the lottery, when you present your student ID, proxies may obtain their individual’s residential contract. The Office of Campus Life will be the proxy for an individual if she or he requests us to do so.
