Information about your University Housing Agreement
The Panhellenic Association and the Department of Housing and Food Services (HFS) cooperate to identify women who have applied for a residence hall space and have also registered for formal sorority recruitment. HFS guarantees placement in the residence halls to any new freshman or transfer student who goes through recruitment and does not pledge a sorority. In order to qualify for a guaranteed space, you must:
- Be a new freshman or transfer student
- Register for recruitment with the Panhellenic Association by September 1, 2013
- Request placement in the residence halls by 5 pm on September 17, 2013
Your residence hall assignment will be based on your recruitment application date. It is likely that you will be assigned to temporary housing for the beginning of autumn quarter.
Before September 1, 2013:
If you plan to register for recruitment, you should NOT submit a residence hall application.
If you do submit a residence hall application and register for recruitment by September 1, your residence hall application will be cancelled, your space will be reassigned to another student, and any payments will be refunded in full.
After September 1, 2013:
If your residence hall application or your recruitment registration is received after September 1, your residence hall application will not be cancelled; if you later cancel your residence hall application, cancellation charges will be assessed.
