You have been assigned a date and time, based on your course credits and GPA, to participate in the Room Draw process to select housing for the coming academic year. Visit the MyRedlands Housing Portal to see your Start Time, located under Room Selection on the home page. Please review all the information below thoroughly, as many of your questions will be answered.
As stated in Dean Eddleman's communication on March 9th, Fairmont Hall will not house students next year. In addition, the University has also decided that North Hall will also not house students next year. Due to the North not housing students next year, Merriam Hall will now serve as a First Year Hall and will not be available to students during Room Draw. On the April 4th Housing Selection and Placement Process 2023-24 Reminders communication, we introduced the opportunity for students to select single rooms in Merriam Hall outside of the Accommodations Process during Room Draw on a first come first serve basis. As Merriam Hall will now house first year students, singles will now be offered around campus in Anderson, California, Cortner, Founders, and Grossmont. These single rooms will be charged at a Single Large rate, the room rates for the 2023-24 academic year can be reviewed on our website.
Single Large - Hall Bath: $8.488
Single Large - Suite Bath: $8,914
Single Large - Private Bath: $9,338
Any student requesting housing accommodations (i.e. single room, air-conditioning, etc.) for physical or mental health needs are instructed to complete the Accommodations Process with Academic Success and Accessibility (ASA). This process allows you to provide information about any medical diagnoses and request accommodations.
Room Draw 2023
You will need to have selected and matched with all roommate(s) and, if applicable, suitemate(s) in advance.
Preparing for Room Draw:
To have a successful Room Draw experience, it is best to prepare in advance a variety of housing options and scenarios with your roommate(s)/suitemate(s).
Selecting a Room:
To make your room selection, follow the prompts on your MyRedlands Housing Portal at your specified date and time. Once you choose a room, you will not be able to participate in any of the remaining Room Draw opportunities.
Assigning Rooms/Beds: When selecting a room or suite during Room Draw, you will identify a roommate/suitemate designation for each matched student in your group and assign them a particular bed arrangement.
Consolidations: After the Room Draw process has finished, Residence Life and Housing will reconfigure housing assignments to optimize placements, and facilitate the Waiting List requests. Students will be notified via their Redlands email account if / when they have been assigned a new space.
Waiting List: This application will become available after the Room Draw process has finished, as changes to housing assignments take place throughout the summer. If you would like to be considered for an alternate housing assignment (e.g. your building preference was full on your Room Draw selection time), use this application. Please be aware that priority for single rooms is first given to students with a housing accommodation using the process above.
