Full-time upper-level students, those who are current rising sophomores, juniors and seniors must select their own rooms for future terms through the housing lottery system (held during the spring semester each year). To enter the housing lottery, students must submit an Intent to Return Request through Self-Service by the designated date, be registered as a full-time student, be in good financial standing with the Bursar’s Office and be assigned to a residence hall room at the time of the lottery. In addition, to complete the reservation process students must be registered as a full-time student for the upcoming term and hold a valid Cougar Card. Students will select their room in the order designated by their lottery number, which will be distributed via @mymail.sxu.edu email accounts on a designated day.
The lottery number is random within the designated academic classification. Residents entering their second year (sophomore year) at SXU and who wish to reside in housing are required to live in on-campus housing accommodations. Detailed reassignment information is available from the Office of Residence Life prior to reassignment.
New residents (transfer or others) will not be issued a lottery number but are eligible to be requested as a roommate on the day of the housing reassignment lottery provided that the necessary contract and deposit are on file with the Office of Residence Life.
Detailed reassignment policy and procedure can be found in the Reassignment Bulletin published annually by the Office of Residence Life.
