Instructions for Completing Housing Room Selection Process

2022-2023 Housing Selection Information

Housing by Class Cohort-
Our housing selection process uses your cohort class year (the year that you arrived at Hendrix) to create draw numbers.  We do not use your academic credit year. This policy was developed based on feedback from students.  Transfer students are assigned into a cohort group based on expected graduation date.   
                                             Seniors- Students who started in Fall 2018 (draw numbers 1000+)
                                             Juniors- Students who started in Fall 2019 (draw numbers 2000+)                                                                              Sophomores- Students who started in Fall 2020 (draw numbers 3000+)
                                             First Years- Students who started in Fall 2021 (draw numbers 4000+)

Housing Draw Numbers-
On March 22nd, students will receive a housing draw number (generated at random) based on their entering cohort class year.  They will also receive an assigned time for their housing selection date.  During the housing selection process, students will select housing in draw number order. The best lottery number for any roommate set is used for the whole group. 

General Housing Selection Dates-
                                         Thursday, April 7th Current Seniors and Juniors
                                         Thursday, April 14th Current Sophomores
                                         Thursday, April 21nd Current First Year students

Hendrix Housing 2022-2023 Statement of Intent- 

All current students must complete a Hendrix Housing Statement of Intent to notify the Office of Residence Life their plans to either not return or to participate in General Housing Selection. Even if you plan to apply for other housing applications, you must complete this form no later than on March 1st, 2022 by 5:00PM. Application available at:

 Apartment Squatting Options- (applications due March 1st)
Juniors and Seniors CURRENTLY living in the apartments are eligible to apply to keep their apartment for next year.  Current Juniors and Seniors are able to fill in vacant spaces within their apartment with current Sophomores, but current First Year students are not eligible for squatting.  This policy is in place to ensure that students who have been here the longest have first access to the apartments.  Application available at:

Residency Requirement Exemption applications-
Hendrix undergraduate students are required to reside in campus housing unless they receive a Residency Requirement Exemption.  Students who wish to live off-campus are required to submit an exemption form.  To receive full consideration, students should submit the application by March 1, 2022.  Students who are currently living off-campus are required to apply for an exemption each academic year.  Additional information about this process is included on the application form.  Application available at:

Process for Current Seniors-
If you are a current Senior and you plan to return to housing for next semester, we ask that you declare that intention by March 1st through the Housing Intent form so that we can generate a housing draw number for you. Please keep in mind that students in the Hendrix 5 program are required to live in campus housing.  Complete the form at:

Graduate Program Housing-  
Students who are in the Masters of Arts in Accounting program at Hendrix are not obligated to live in campus housing.  However, if you plan to live in campus housing please contact prior to the 24th to receive a draw number.

Gender Inclusive Housing-  
Although much of our housing system is set for students to live with other students of their same gender, we do have a process where students may apply to live with those of other genders.  This is a fairly simple process but we do ask that students complete the Gender-Inclusive Housing Application Form, which is reviewed by our Coordinator of LGBTQ+ Support Services.  Students who have been previously approved for GIC and are eligible to squat their space do not need to reapply for this process. Complete the form at:

 Medical or Special Needs-
Students who have medical or special needs that that they feel could impact their housing selection should submit this information by March 1 in order for the information to be considered for the housing selection process. Medical forms and additional information are available at:
