Room Sign-Up



In order for you to plan to select your room/roommate(s) for the next academic year, we have prepared this timeline.  After Spring Break, a detailed housing memo will be sent to you and information will be placed on the Residential Life website that will further explain the various housing options for College apartments, suites, houses, special interest communities, and traditional halls.  The exact time, date, and location of your housing sign-up period will also be included.

 

ALL students MUST pay a $100.00 non-refundable room deposit (beginning on February 8th, 2016) at the Business Office or at the following website in order to reserve housing for the upcoming academic year.

•             You WILL NOT be automatically billed for a room deposit. 

•             You or your parent(s) MUST pay the room deposit separate from any other bill you may currently have. 

•             In order to pay your non-refundable $100.00 room deposit, your account balance at the Business Office CANNOT exceed $500.00.

•             You MUST pay your non-refundable $100.00 room deposit by Friday, March 4th, 2016 to receive a lottery number in the housing sign-up process.

 

While additional mailings will follow, all information pertaining to the housing assignment process will be posted on the web within the Residential Life/Student Affairs links in the very near future.

Applying for a Housing Exemption

 

A process has been developed in order to review requests for an exemption to the four-year on-campus living requirement.  This process is outlined on page 155 of the Student Handbook.  A Housing Exemption Request Form may be obtained from the Center for Student Engagement and must be completed by Friday, February 19th.

 

Off-Campus Housing Lottery

 

An off-campus lottery process may take place for the 2016-2017 academic year.  This process will allow a limited amount of students the ability to live off-campus through a random selection.  In order to be eligible for the lottery process a student must:

 

•             Be a member of the class of 2017

•             Have a Room Deposit paid by March 4th

•             Hold a GPA of 3.25 or higher

•             Have no active judicial sanction

 

Students who are chosen in the lottery will be notified by March 18th and will be able to select one other eligible student.  Both students must register for the lottery by coming to the Residential Life office and filling out the Off-Campus Housing Lottery Form by Friday, March 4th.  Students not selected in the lottery will participate in the on-campus housing selection process beginning April 6th.

 

Special Housing Accommodations

 

In order to best meet the needs of students, protocols have been established to review individual requests for special housing accommodations (e.g. single room, air conditioned housing, etc.).  Please see page 155 of the Student Handbook to review the complete process.  A Special Housing Accommodation Form may be obtained from the Residential Life website or Residential Life Office.  This form is due to the Residential Life Office by Friday, March 4th at 4:30 p.m.  Please note that students are required to apply annually for renewal of special housing accommodations.

 

Abroad and Off-Campus Studies

 

All students going abroad or studying off-campus for Fall 2016 should complete a housing form with your study abroad paperwork.  Non-refundable $100.00 room deposit to be paid at the Business Office by Friday, March 4th, 2016.

 

 

Students Who Are Not Returning to Campus Housing

 

Resident-to-Commuter (R-to-C)

 

Any student, who wishes to change their housing status from resident to commuter, must obtain an R-to-C form from the Residential Life Office.  To be considered for commuter status, you must live with your parents within 30 miles of LVC’s campus.

 

Transfer, Withdrawal, or Leave of Absence

 

Any student who plans on transferring, withdrawing, or taking a leave of absence must obtain the appropriate form from the Registrar’s Office.

 

 

Students Who Pay Their Room Deposit after March 4th

 

Students who pay their room deposit after Friday, March 4th will not receive a housing sign-up number.  However, it is important to pay your room deposit before your particular sign-up process.  If your room deposit is paid by the date of your sign-up process, you will either select a room with a roommate who has a housing sign-up number or sign-up at the end of your class category.  If your room deposit is not paid by the date of your sign-up process, you will be unable to select a room.
