Housing and Dining Services is currently reviewing the retention policy as it applies to Resnik and West Wing suites. The results of this review may affect the way suites in these locations are retained and filled for room selection 2013.
Due to planned renovations, Woodlawn Apartments may be unavailable for residents during room selection, as early as room selection 2013.
Room selection process change
Housing and Dining Services will continue to develop and implement new software and technology processes associated with room selection. Changes to room selection 2013 will be announced in advance.
Anticipated change in the housing proration policy
The cancellation and refund policy is currently being reviewed by Housing and Dining Services. Some changes are being made beginning in the 2012–13 school year to the system that processes refunds when students leave during the semester. More information will be available in upcoming months as final decisions are made.
Private and semi-private bathroom cleaning
Students residing in suites or rooms that do not share a community bathroom, and instead have a private or semi-private bathroom, may become responsible for cleaning their own bathrooms during the 2012–13 school year. If this change is finalized, residents assigned to these locations will be notified. Bathrooms will still be cleaned by Housing and Dining staff during winter break.
Individual Phone Lines
Housing and Dining will continue to remove individual phone lines from student rooms in response to feedback that the majority of students do not see a need for the land lines. Instead, common phone lines in each building, to be used for emergency purposes, will be available. Buildings that have been (or soon will be) affected by these changes include Boss House, Doherty Apartments, Donner House, Hamerschlag House, Morewood Gardens, Morewood E-Tower, Mudge House (except for B and C tower basement rooms), Scobell House, Shirley Apartments, Stever House, Resnik House, West Wing, and the Residence on Fifth.
