Room Selection 2018-2019

What is Room Selection?

Room Selection is Scripps’ online housing reapplication process, for qualifying Scripps students. Room Selection takes place over the course of the spring semester, with selection for on-campus rooms taking place on April 11, 12, and 13.  Please note that students participating in on-campus room selection will be assigned a selection day and time. Selection dates are based on class year seniority; rising seniors, then juniors then sophomores. Students wishing to live with another student in a suite, double, triple, quad, or Senior Routt Apartment must create a roommate group. For more information, visit How Room Selection Works and RoommateGroupsTutorial.

Prior to Room Selection starting, students will complete their Room Selection Housing Application, available on their housing portal. Room Selection Applications for all on-campus housing options outside of the specialty communities indicated below, are due on Friday, April 6th by 11:59pm/PST.

Selecting your room

Log into your housing portal to select a room from the spaces available. For a quick understanding of how to select a room as a single room or as a group, please view the videos and tips sheets below.

Students selecting a room will log on during their designated date and time, all of which occur from 8:00am-5:00pm PST.

Note: We ask that you make every effort to select your space during the designated time, so that in the event you have issues with selection, a member of the Residential Life staff are available to assist.  Selecting after your time has passed is still permissible, just know you may not receive support/resolution until the next business day.

Single Rooms:  Students selecting a single room will choose a space from the open spaces available.

Group Selection/Non-Single Rooms: Student selecting a space that requires more than one person to fully occupy the space will need to create a Roommate Group. Roommate groups are dynamic and can be changed in real time. Should you not receive your first choice, but then decide to choose a different group option, simply create a new group. A group’s day and time will be based on the best day and time from any member within the group. The group leader will choose the room for the group and will place the group members into their rooms within the group space.

I submitted a 5C exchange application. When can I expect to hear back?

If you submitted an application for the 5C exchange process, your application is currently being reviewed and you will receive a response with updates shortly.

Going Abroad ?

Students who will be participating in Off-Campus Study (OCS) in Fall 2018 will NOT participate in Room Selection. Students who will be on campus in Fall 2018 but abroad in Spring 2019 will choose a room during Room Selection. *Please note that students who will be going abroad are not eligible for Living Learning Communities or 5-C Exchange.

How was my selection date/time determined?

Selection date is based on anticipated graduation year and your enrollment status. Selection times are randomly generated by our housing software system.

Can’t find your room selection day or time?

Please notify ResLife@scrippscollege.edu. Students who are going abroad for Fall 2018 do not need to participate in room selection and will not receive a room selection day or time.

I still don’t understand how it works!

On the actual dates of Room Selection, stop by the Routt Living room starting at 8am, Wednesday April 11th. ResLife staff will be available for questions, support, and to help navigating the selection process. We will also be available April 12 8am-5pm and April 13 8am-5pm.
