Room Draw

Returning Hope students: Select your housing and roommate for the 2023–2024 school year at room draw!

Open room draw will be held virtually on April 4, 5 and 6.

How open room draw works

You will randomly be assigned a room draw number based on how many years you have been in college attendance (your cohort). This number will dicate the day and time you will select your room.

You will receive an email on Monday, April 4, with you room draw number and day/time of your selection. There will be further instruction in the email on how to enter the virtual room draw meeting and to view the rooms currently available, so it will be important to keep this email!

If you are picking housing with a student that is year ahead of you, you will pick housing on their date/time.

When your name/number is called, you (and your roommate) will pick from the available Residential Hall rooms or the apartment and cottage spaces listed below. If you pick a double room, you will be asked to name a roommate. If you are unable to name a roommate, we will consolidate students or house another student with you.

Your (and your roommate's) housing will be completed for the 2022-2023 academic year.

If you do not pick the housing you hoped for, you will have the opportunity to complete a wait list for other housing.
