For students who submitted an application for on campus housing for next year, below is a brief outline of the process students will follow to choose their roommates and rooms.

Submitting an application for housing, however, does not guarantee a space on campus. Students who submitted an application by the deadline were placed into a lottery system with rising sophomores receiving first priority. 

Lottery numbers will be sent out to students on Monday, Mar. 12. Students will be able to select their locations as well as roommates at particular times, corresponding to their class standing. Rising sophomores will be able to make their selections between Monday, Mar. 12 and Friday, Mar. 16. Rising juniors and seniors will be able to make their selections beginning Friday, Mar. 16.

Same Room Sign-Up

For students hoping to stay in the room that they currently reside in, “same room sign-up” is available for residents living in Ackell Residence Center, Broad & Belvidere, Grace and Broad, as well as those living in ASPiRE, Globe, LEAD and Innovate Living-Learning Communities. This process began on Wednesday, Feb. 14. Students staying in their current residence may pull in roommates once their housing is confirmed, and this process began Monday, Feb. 19.

Living-Learning Communities

Students involved in Living-Learning Communities will be selecting rooms in the building where their program is housed. Each of the programs will provide specific details to their students about the process. These living learning communities include:

  • Grace and Broad: VCU LEAD or Innovate
  • West Grace North: VCU Globe
  • West Grace South: VCU ASPiRE
