Home- Campus Life- Housing Options- Sophomore Housing Sophomore Living All sophomores are housed on campus, and each residence is overseen by an assistant director and student community leaders who serve as mentors and resources. Room and Roommate Assignments Here are a few key points about room selection for your sophomore year: Students make their own roommate arrangements. Room selection is based on a random lottery system during the spring of your first year (applications for interest housing must be submitted earlier). The availability of rooms and suites varies by residence hall, so preferences cannot be guaranteed. Sophomores may choose to apply for three interest housing options: Wellness Living, the Harlem Renaissance Center, and the academic Sophomore Residential Seminars program. There also are resources available for those who require special accommodations. Selection Quick Guide Room selection for the 2013-2014 academic year will take place via the Portal.
