When is the housing lottery?

For current Sophomores and Juniors, the housing lottery takes place in April. For current Freshmen, rooms will be assigned over the summer.

May I paint my room?

No, you may not paint your room. Even if you are willing to paint it back at the end of the year. Sorry.

What is the benefit of having recommendations kept on file in the House?

The House dossier service is a great way to “bank” recommendations as you take courses, i.e., before professors forget who you are. If you decide to apply to a different program or want a more updated recommendation a few years from now, we can always send the old letter back to the faculty member for a revision.

Note: You would need to complete a new waiver form for each version of the letter.
