Housing Selection is intended for all current Mount students for the purpose of selecting roommates and housing assignments for the 2016-2017 academic year. Housing Selection utilizes a group ranking system based on students' completed academic credits as of January 1, 2016. Students have the opportunity to participate in any of the processes for which they are eligible based on their class status.
If you would like to live in on-campus housing, you must participate in either the Housing Selection process (described here) or the Housing Placement Process. If you do not participate in either process, you will be placed on a wait list and will be assigned to campus housing if and when it becomes available.

Important Housing Selection Reminders
If you opt into the Housing Selection process for the Apartments, Powell, Summit Living House, Cottages, Annex or suites in the Terrace, the group leader must be prepared to choose the bedrooms everyone will live in on your selection date and time.
Complete groups will be ranked first. There is no guarantee that incomplete groups will qualify for a selction process. In order to increase your chances of qualifying for a process you should opt-in to the process with a complete group.
If you do not get into your first choice in the first housing selection process your group enters, you will have time to regroup to opt into another housing selection process still available. You will have the option to regroup and enter another process during the opt-in periods on the Housing Selection Timeline.
No changes will be made after:
The Housing Selection application is submitted.
Groups are confirmed and the deadline has been reached.
Rooms are selected on a group's designated Selection Day.
