Residential Life

Room Lottery

Welcome to the housing selection process. Your residence hall application-contract is an online process. Once you have completed the application, you will need to log back in to choose your roommates and select your room according to your lottery number.

  • Full-time undergraduate students are required to live on campus for their first and second year of college, regardless of credit-based class status. Entering first-year students must live on campus for their first two years, and transfer students who have not yet completed their first two years of college must comply with the residency requirement for the remainder of their first two years of college. Learn more about our residency requirement.
  • Factors determining when you will select your room include your class status as of mid-January, your randomly assigned selection number, and your roommate choice for fall semester.
  • If you are requesting special accommodations for medical or psychological reasons, read details about the process.
  • All students must be financially cleared from the student accounts office before the application/contracts can be accepted. If there is a financial hold on your account, a message will display on your MyHousing at Nazareth College.
  • There is a $350 non-negotiable cancellation fee for any student who breaks the room contract once it is submitted.
