Room Selection Lottery for Returning Students

How does the Room Lottery work?

You will be able to select lottery numbers in the Assumption Lobby from February 26 - 28 and March 10 - 12. At this time you will complete your housing agreement for 2014 - 2015.

Please note:

  • The lottery is based in academic standing. The first set of lottery numbers will be reserved for current Juniors, Seniors and Graduate students. Current Sophomores will choose from a second set of lottery numbers. Current Freshmen will choose from a third set of lottery numbers.

  • You and your roommate(s) will each select a lottery number and select a room assignment based on the better of the lottery numbers.

  • In Vickroy and Des Places, you will be allowed to select a suite based on the best lottery number among the residents choosing to live in that suite. Vickroy and Des Places rooms may only be selected as full rooms or full suites.

  • In Brottier Hall you will be allowed to select an apartment based on the best lottery number chosen by those wishing to live in the same apartment.

  • You will report at your designated time and wait for your lottery number to be called. You will then be able to select from available rooms and apartments.

What do I do if I can't be there to select my room?

You can designate someone as your proxy to select your room in your place. In most cases, your roommate may serve as your proxy. If a different proxy is
needed, you may choose anyone to serve as a proxy. If you cannot find a proxy, a Residence Life staff member can serve as a proxy for you. However, if someone else is selecting your room, you must complete the Room Selection Proxy Form.
                                           *Proxy Forms will be available when you choose your lottery number*

How do I select my room?

You and your roommate(s) (or suitemates) must come to the Duquesne Union Ballroom at your designated time to choose which room or apartment you would like to live in next year. You will be able to review all available spaces and select a specific room. Please be prepared with different options in case your desired room is not available. 
This reserves your room on campus for the 2014-2015 academic year!

If you do not select a room during Room Selection on your designated date you will be placed onto a waiting list.
