The Office of Housing and Residence Life is excited to begin our returning student room selection for the 2017-2018 academic year. This guide will provide important information on the room selection process.
Room selection will proceed in stages. Before starting the room selection process you should discuss housing plans for 2017-18 with your current roommate. Residents who are not currently a member of a learning community or not participating next year will be unable to make an assignment in that area. If you are not sure about your plans, we encourage you to make an assignment. You can cancel by May 31, 2017, 5:00 pm and get a full housing deposit refund. Since a deposit has already been submitted, another deposit is not required. A student currently living off-campus must submit a deposit of $150 to participate in the room selection process. You may pay by credit/debit card, cash, or check at the office of Housing and Residence Life located on the 1st floor of Belk Hall.
For room selection, access Odyssey HMS through BraveWeband complete the 2017-18 Housing Agreement. After you have successfully completed your housing agreement, you must return to the HMS homepage and make your assignment. Failure to reclaim your current assignment during the reclaiming periods forfeits any claim you have to the room. Remember, Cypress Hall, Oak Hall, and Pine Hall are available as suite style halls, and if you are interested in apartment living with a 9-month agreement, we have the Village Apartments and the Courtyard Apartments.
A student should understand that by entering into the Housing Agreement, they are liable for the room and board charges for the full academic year (August – May). No cancellations of the Housing Agreement will be accepted after May 31, 2017 at 11:59pm.
Room Selection Process Stages
Reclaim your own space: This period is for students that just want to reclaim their own space and no new roommate(s). Go to Odyssey HMS, complete the agreement, return to the homepage and select “Reclaim Your Own Space”.
Reclaim with new roommate(s): If your roommate or suitemates are not reclaiming, you can select new roommate/suitemates. The reclaimant must list all new suitemates on their agreement. The new roommate/suitemates must list only the reclaimant. Only the reclaimant should return to HMS homepage, select “Reclaim With New Roommate(s)” and assign roommates within the suite.
Consolidation: For students in a double room without a roommate or in a suite or apartment that is not full, the University reserves the right to consolidate assignments to ensure full capacity.
New Assignment with roommate(s): You may select from remaining spaces after current residents have reclaimed or reclaimed with new roommates. After you have identified a roommate/suitemates on your agreement, only one roommate must return to HMS homepage, choose “Select a Room” and make the assignments.
New Assignment: This period is for students that want to make a different assignment. You must complete an agreement, return to the HMS homepage and make your assignment from the remaining spaces.
Open Selection: Students that did not select a room may choose from the remaining spaces. You must complete an agreement, return to the HMS homepage and make your assignment. Students who selected a room, but now want to change rooms can do so. If you change rooms, HMS will not move your roommate with you. Your roommate must also logon to HMS and change the room.
Room Selection Process Dates
Remember, students that did not select a room during a previous stage may select a room from the remaining spaces during Open Room Selection.
