All students enrolled for the spring 2024 semester receive a computer generated lottery number. Lottery numbers are weighted to class level and are generated based on class level information from the Registrar’s Office. More specific details regarding the use of Lottery Numbers will appear in the information describing the various stages of the housing process. Your lottery number will be sent to you as a Housing Lottery Card in your SMC in early March once you have met all University financial obligations and have filled out the online Housing Contract in the Residence Portal. Not every housing assignment process will utilize this number; however, it will help determine selection priority for several processes.
