I was told that I'm not allowed to retain (squat) my room. Why?
There are various rooms around campus that are special needs equipped (e.g., ADA accessible, hearing impaired, special bathroom, carpet-over-tile). There are some floors we hold out of housing selection so we can determine the floor's gender based on the needs of the incoming class. These rooms may not be retained.
Since you may not squat, you are displaced and you will need to participate in the on-line housing selection process during the appropriate selection time.
