Junior and senior students may live in college apartments, college houses, Greek houses, or townhouses, or they may apply to live off campus. These options include both traditional-style housing options and interest housing.
Room and Roommate Assignments
Juniors and seniors make their own roommate arrangements. The application process for interest housing begins prior to room selection for traditional-style housing, and assignments are based on application quality. Students seeking a traditional residential experience will select housing based on a random housing lottery. The availability of each residence type varies, so preferences cannot be guaranteed.
Fraternity and Sorority Houses
Students who are involved in a fraternity or sorority are permitted to live in their respective fraternity or sorority house during their junior and/or senior years. The facilities are university-owned, but the operations of the communities within are the responsibility of the individual fraternity and sorority organizations.

Off-Campus Living: Neighbor-to-Neighbor Program
Members of the senior class may apply to enter a lottery for a limited number of opportunities to live off campus in the Hamilton community. For more information about the Neighbor-to-Neighbor Program, contact the Office of Residential Life
: It is not guaranteed that everyone wishing to live off campus will be permitted to do so. Do not commit to or sign a lease for an off-campus residence unless you have received notification of permission to live off campus following the off-campus housing lottery.
