Housing Selection 2017-2018: Information for Current Immaculata Students

*Incoming Immaculata students will be placed by Residence Life and Housing over the summer and do not participate in this process.*

New additions this year:

  • Consistent housing rates for 2017-2018 — no price increase from already reduced 2016-2017 rates. This is competitive pricing for an all-inclusive environment.
  • Competitive meal plan prices for 2017-2018 — a modest cost-of-living price increase from 2016-2017
  • Increased single-room options for both male and female residents
  • Community-based living options — i.e., a female quiet floor, a healthy living community

Interested in participating in Housing Selection in April?

Here’s a snapshot of some key information.

Housing Selection Steps

  1. Complete housing application online through SSIU.
  2. Recieve lottery number from Residence Life and Housing via email.
  3. Attend housing selection to select your residential housing assignment for the upcoming year.

Housing Application

You must complete a housing application through SSIU, accessible through MyIU. Applications must be submitted by the deadline in order to receive a lottery number based on your cohort. To apply, complete the steps listed below.

  1. Log on to SSIU.
  2. Once logged on, click on the Student information link.
  3. Next, click on the Housing and Meal Plan Application link.
  4. Follow the on-screen directions.

Lottery Numbers

Lottery numbers are randomly assigned within each class year (current rising seniors first, then rising juniors and then rising sophomores).

You MUST have a lottery number to participate in housing selection.  You will receive a lottery number after completing a housing application, which is done online through SSIU. If you fail to submit your housing application by the assigned date, you will not receive a lottery number.

Without a lottery number, you will not be able to participate in the housing selection process. If you are interested in housing, but did not apply for a lottery number, contact Residence Life and Housing and you will be contacted regarding available housing after selection has taken place.

Housing Selection

Housing selection will occur in April, at which point you will select your residential housing assignment for the upcoming year.

  • Housing selection takes place on a Sunday afternoon.
  • Specific times for housing selection based on lottery numbers will be posted closer to the housing selection date.
