Day 1 of Room Selection is now complete. Today’s lottery was for students who were eligible to retain their current room assignments (28 Priority Points or more) and pull-in an eligible roommate (25 Priority Points or more.) If you were supposed to retain your room today but missed your time, don’t worry. You can log in tomorrow (Tuesday) from 10am-4pm and still do so as long as your room is available.
Students who do not wish to retain their room are eligible for the Open Room Selection Lottery this Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. You may have noticed that your Open Room Selection lottery times disappeared from your Housing Profile. Don’t worry, they didn’t vanish completely. We had to hide the Open Room Selection lottery in order to make today’s Room Selection a success. You’ll see them appear once again on Tuesday evening.
Got questions during our lottery times? We’ve got a helpful AIM screenname staffed by a real, live person (Josh) to help you out. Buddy list him at HallHousingHelp.

Online Room Selection Instructions – Final.ppt
Above is a link to instructions for our Online Room Selection process. Please note only students who are eligible to participate in Online Room Selection will be able to select a room through this method.
We’ve pushed back sending out lottery numbers until today because we wanted to make sure we heard everyone’s Priority Points appeals and made all the necessary changes.
Lottery numbers and times as well as Room Selection instructions will be emailed out today so stay tuned!!

Priority Points were sent out on April 3rd to all students who are eligible to participate in the Room Selection process for next year. (Just a reminder, that means students who applied AND deposited by the February 20th deadline received the Priority Points.) There was a second emailing of corrected Priority Points emailed out on Wednesday, April 8th.
We learned a few things from our email pushes:
- About 150 students applied online for the wrong semester. Students who brought this to our attention had their application corrected and received an email with their Priority Point breakdown and totals. We also ran a report to see if there were anymore out there and contacted them to ask if they had applied for the correct semester. Those who responded back that they meant to apply for the Fall had their application amended and received their Priority Points (if they qualified.) All students who applied and deposited on time will be permitted to take part in Room Selection, as long as they applied and deposited on time. We’re working with our colleagues in web devo to get the application fixed so it’s much more easier to select the correct semester.
- Non-scholarship athletes were accidentally not given Priority Points and this was realized first thing on Monday morning. Also we realized a certain population of resident students did not receive credit for some program attendance. Both of these issues were fixed immediately and students who were impacted received updated Priority Point emails on Wednesday.
Seton Hall’s first ever online room selection processes were run today for Turrell Manor and Sophomore Discovery Program accepted students. Both were successful!
Feel free to ask any of the students involved how easy it was! This is just a great sign of things to come!
