Returner Self- Assignment!

As February comes to a close, the employees in the Business Administration office in University Housing get our contracts organized and our pens ready because the beginning of March always means RETURNER SELF-ASSIGNMENT.

What is Returner Self-Assignment, you ask? Well, as a fourth year resident in Sandburg Hall, I am all too familiar with this process, so let me explain. Returner Self-Assignment is for the current University Housing residents who plan on returning to the residence halls in the fall. These students can pick where they want to live next year... EXACTLY where they want to live!


Yes! That means you can choose not only your building (Sandburg Traditional, Sandburg East, Purin, Riverview or Cambridge), but you can also sign up with friends to make sure you are placed together or near each other (whoever has the best assigned time can pencil-in their roommates and suitemates names - those roommates and suitemates then have to show up at their assigned times to confirm the request). With this freedom, you can also pick the style of room (triple, double or single) and even pick a room with the view that you want!

If you want to take part in this convenient process, make sure to attend at your scheduled time, which will occur on either the Tuesday March 3 or Wednesday March 4 assignment days in the Sandburg Green Room from 5-9 p.m. Check your mailbox for your individual instructions. If you aren't able to make it, you can have a friend turn in a "proxy card" so they can pick the room for you, or you can go to the Round 2 of Returner Self-Assignment in April.

When you show up to the Green Room there might be a long line, but don't be intimidated because the line usually goes pretty quick. From there you will go up to the table that represents the building you want to live in and pick the room you want to live in next fall. Make sure you go with a few options that you are okay with living in, just in case your specific room is already taken once you get there. However, once you sign your contract, make the prepayment/deposit fee of $100, and pick your room, you are guaranteed the room you reserved come move in during August!
