Housing Selection 2013-14
To be eligible to participate in Housing Selection 2013, a student must sign the 2013-2014 Housing Agreement and pay the $200 deposit before 3:00 pm on Tuesday, February 5, 2013.
- For 2013-14 full year agreement, students may complete transaction online in the My Ship, Student, Ship Life, MyHousing Portal (deposit can be paid via credit card or eCheck) or student may come to Housing and Residence Life in McLean Hall Room 113 (deposit can be paid via check or cash).
- Students interested in Fall 2013 Agreement due to December 2013 graduation or Spring 2014 study abroad or student teaching, must come to Housing and Residence Life Office in McLean Hall Room 113 (deposit can be paid via check or cash). One semester housing agreement requests can be made by printing the online form at: housing.ship.edu, forms by February 1, 2013.
The Housing Agreement is for the full academic year 2013-2014 (unless student is approved for a one semester Fall 2013 only Agreement – special permission required). Submission of agreement and deposit reserves a space in university housing; location is not guaranteed. The University reserves the right to make room assignments, temporary assignments, consolidate vacancies by requiring resident to move and reassignments. Deposit is non-refundable. Housing Agreement cancellation deadline is July 1, 2013.
Note: All living options, except apartment housing in Stone Ridge Commons, will close for Thanksgiving, Winter, and Spring Breaks. A meal plan is required in all residence halls (traditional and new suite); a meal plan is optional in Stone Ridge Commons Apartment housing.
Housing will be selected via online lotteries in the MyHousing Portal. It is recommended that all students enter lifestyle, building and roommate (if any) preferences, so information is available if reassignment becomes necessary. However, it is imperative that all students electing not to self-select a room enter preferences, so assignment can be made by Housing and Residence Life. Preferences will be honored to the extent possible based on available space. Deadline to enter preferences is on March 1, 2013.
All returning student assignments will be posted online by March 29, 2013. It is important that students review assignment to identify any possible errors and to see changes necessary due to consolidation. New Students will be allowed to select spaces shortly after this date (It becomes much more difficult to address concerns once incoming students begin room selection). Any concerns should be brought to the attention of Housing and Residence Life Office immediately.
During Housing Selection 2013 (February 6-March 29), a student may participate in multiple selection processes. For example, a student may apply for apartment housing and if that application is not successful, the student may subsequently apply for new suite housing or select a room during the traditional hall lotteries. However, once a student makes a housing selection it cannot be changed during Housing Selection 2013-14 (February 6-March 29).
