THINGS TO KNOW
Class or Work Conflict. If you are unable to attend a sign-up event, you must provide your roommate with a signed Room and Meal Plan Contract and a letter authorizing him or her to make your housing decision in your absence. If you have a class conflict, you are expected to follow this procedure. Please do not miss class to attend a sign-up event.
Reserving Rooms for New Students. Over half of the double spaces on each residence hall floor and select triple rooms will be reserved for first-time freshmen. Any single, quad, or triple room not reserved by continuing students on May 14 will be reserved for new students; the remaining spaces needed will be reserved in double rooms. The location of these rooms will be posted at spu.edu/HousingOptions on May 17 (click on the hall and then "Floor Plan").
If a Roommate Cancels Housing for Autumn 2013. If your roommate cancels his or her housing, you will have one week from the date Housing Services receives notice of the cancellation to request an eligible roommate to fill the space. The replacement must have an equal or greater number of points. After one week, Housing Services will assume responsibility for assigning a student to your unit. If your roommate cancels after August 9, you will be assigned a roommate and notified when a placement is made.
Attending an Autumn 2013 Study Program. If you are participating in an Autumn Quarter 2013 study program, you may apply for Winter Quarter 2014 housing by submitting a Room and Meal Plan Contract before you leave. Although we are unable to hold a space open for you during Autumn Quarter, priority will be given to your assignment when you return. To update your roommate matching preferences, please visit spu.edu/HousingApp. Be specific about your preferences in the notes section, and we will do our best to honor them. You will be notified of your assignment during Christmas Break.
You may also try to find an eligible student who will be a resident for Autumn Quarter only, in whose space you can return to Winter Quarter. If you make this type of arrangement, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the details.
Future Campus Construction Plans. Various campus offices and residential facilities are occasionally impacted by construction projects. The largest project slated for 2013-14 is the construction of a new residence hall, north of Hill Hall and West of Demaray Hall. Impact may range from noise to re-routing traffic. Please consider this when making your housing selection for next year. Visit spu.edu/depts/facman for future projects (click on "Projects").
