Residence Life

Check List for Room Selection Process

  • Attend the mandatory off campus meeting on February 18 if you plan on applying to live off campus.
  • Clear any financial hold you may have with the Business Office by February 26.
  • Submit your Statement of Intent Form (and GNH Application, if interested) by March 1.
  • Educate yourself about the different types of housing facilities Hendrix College has so that you can select wisely.
  • Talk to your current roommate to determine if you both want to squat your current space. If you both want to squat but not with each other, determine who has the lowest draw number. That person will be getting the room. The other person will need to decide on a new space.
  • Talk to your parent(s), financial supporter, etc. about where you would like to live in the coming year.
  • Talk to your friends and roommate(s) about where and with whom you would like to live in the coming year.
  • Gather all of the friends with which you wish to room and decide who will be the Room Representative at the Room Selection Process. (You may all attend, but you don’t have to as long as you send a Proxy Form with your Room Representative.)
  • Determine which of your roommate group has the lowest draw number. Your Room Representative should attend the Process according to that number.
  • If you cannot attend the Room Selection Process at the time you are supposed to, decide who is going to be your Proxy or Room Representative.
  • Give your Proxy Form to your Proxy or Room Representative. If you are not in Conway, an email to your Proxy giving them permission and instructions will suffice. They should print the mail and bring it with them to your Room Selection time.
  • Know your day and time to attend the Room Selection Process.
  • Bring your current Hendrix student ID to the Process.
  • Be ready with a backup plan in the event that your first or second choices are not available.
  • If you wish to live off campus, use the Residency Exemption Request Application (request off-campus). This form is due March 1. If your exemption request is based on a need listed on the form, provide all required documentation with your application. Permission is for one academic year at a time regardless of your current reason for approval. If you will not be on campus in the fall but wish to live off campus when you return in the spring, you must request permission now. Permissions are granted per student, not to roommate groups.
  • There will be a mandatory meeting for anyone planning on applying to live off campus for the 2016-17 academic year. The meeting will take place in Trieschmann's Reves Recital Hall on Thursday, February 18, from 11:10-11:50. If you are abroad, on leave of absence, or already living off campus you will be exempt from the meeting.
