If your student is interested in living on campus next year, the housing application is now open for the Fall 2017- Spring 2018 academic year and is due to be submitted to housing by Friday, Feb. 10 at noon.
Submitting an application for housing, however, does not guarantee a space on campus. Students who submit an application by the deadline will be placed into a lottery system with rising sophomores receiving first priority. Students can submit their housing application here.
Lottery numbers will be sent out to students on Monday, Mar. 13. Students will be able to select their locations as well as roommates at particular times, corresponding to their class standing. Rising sophomores will be able to make their selections between Monday, Mar. 13 and Friday, Mar. 17. Rising juniors and seniors will be able to make their selections beginning Friday, Mar. 17.
Same Room Sign-Up
For students hoping to stay in the room that they currently reside in, “same room sign-up” is available for residents living in Ackell Residence Center, Broad & Belvidere, Grace and Broad, as well as those living in ASPiRE, Globe, LEAD and Innovate Living-Learning Communities. This process will begin Tuesday, Feb. 14. Students staying in their current residence may pull in roommates once their housing is confirmed, and this process begins Friday, Feb. 17.
Students currently residing in Gladding Residence Center will not be able to complete “same room sign-up” and should apply to be in the lottery process if they are hoping to stay on campus next year. Due to limited space on campus during construction and renovation of halls across campus, VCU cannot guarantee housing placement.
Students involved in Living-Learning Communities will be selecting rooms in the building where their program is housed. Each of the programs will provide specific details to their students about the process. These living learning communities include:
- Grace and Broad 1 & 2: VCU LEAD or Innovate
- West Grace North: VCU Globe
- West Grace South: VCU ASPiRE
