Lottery Number Notification 

Housing & Residential Life will notify you of your lottery number by e-mail and mail in early February. Lottery numbers are randomly generated based on class year. Along with your lottery number, you will receive detailed information about the Room Selection and Placement Process including the specific date and time you will be selecting your housing.

Housing Selection and Placement

Current First Year Students: 

Current second year students will be scheduled to select their space starting on March 24th. At the time you are scheduled to select your room, you and your roommate set (if applicable), will make your Fall 2014 room selection from the spaces that are available.

Summer Session Deposit Information: 

Housing for Summer I and II 2014 can be secured now by placing a deposit on the myNEU Portal. The deposit for Summer I is $200 and Summer II is $200. A total of $400 is required for both sessions.

Summer 2014 deposit information will be available in the Fall Semester of 2014.

Residency Requirement Exemption Request

The University requires that all first and second year students live on campus. Since this policy will be rolled out over a two year period beginning this fall, the exemption request process is only available to freshmen beginning in Fall semester.  Exemptions to this residency requirement maybe requested by completing the following form. If you fail to complete this form completely, it will be returned to you and not submitted to the On Campus Residency Exemption Committee for review.  Once the form is completed successfully it will be automatically submitted for review at the next On Campus Residency Exemption Committee meeting. 

Cancellation Information

The University provides on-campus and leased accommodations that are assigned each semester. Students are billed at the beginning of each semester and are obligated to pay the full charge for the term. The dynamic nature of the co-op program makes it necessary for Housing & Residential Life to enforce its Cancellation Policy strictly. Housing confirmation letters are mailed each semester with a reminder that students must notify Housing & Residential Life if they do not plan to accept their assignment.

Failure to respond or to provide timely written notification of cancellation will result in a charge to students for their assigned space (i.e., if you are assigned to a room with a rate of $5,240 and you cancel your housing on 6/20/14, you will be assessed 50% of your room rate, which is $2,620.00 - NOT 50% OF YOUR DEPOSIT for fall term). If the cancellation deadline has passed, students who can demonstrate a significant change in academic, co-op, financial, or personal circumstances may petition to have this fee waived. If you are assessed a cancellation fee, it will be posted to your account in Student Accounts in 354 Richards Hall typically after the second week of the semester in question.
