Frequently Asked Questions
How does Block Selection work?
Groups of four to six students can fill out a Group Selection Request form in the Office of Residential Life. Groups filling out the form need to be specific about the kind of room each student wants, as well as the areas of campus the group is interested in living in.
Then, the Office of Residential Life assigns the group to spaces based on space availability and the group’s average housing priority number. We then notify the group contact when they are awarded a space and their housing assignment.
Less than 50% of applications are honored each year making this a very completive selection. Please visit /reslife/guide/room_selection_programs/risingsoph/ to learn more.
