Room Selection!

The Ware Room Selection Committee, comprised of five Ware Residents has designed
the room selection process for the 2015- 2016 school year. The Selection Committee has
discussed in great detail many important factors for room selection that would help
Ware Commons continue to foster a friendly, welcoming community.

The Committee found the following factors as the most important factors:
Ware students having the option of staying in their current space
Rewarding Service as it is part of our values
Senority- The classes of 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 will have priority, in that order
Based on those factors, Room Selection will be done in the following manner:

 Wednesday, March 25 at 5:00-7:30PM, Ware Classroom
o Students that fall into the following categories can come select their rooms.
-Class of 2016 and 2017
-Commons Council Members, Peer Leaders, and Gormet Group members (you will recieve an email)
o When students in those categories arrive, they will receive a ticket that will determine their order. If this
student knows their roommate, that person should be present as well.
Thursday, March 26 at 7:00PM, Ware Lobby
o Class of 2018 and any students that were eligible for the first room selection that missed that night
o When students in those categories arrive, they will receive a number that will determine their order. Students may start arriving no earlier than 6:30pm to begin receiving numbers

Do I have to attend or can I send someone in my place to pick my room?
o You must be present to select your room. No “proxies” allowed.

How do I get a single?
o There are 11 singles reserved for upperclassmen out of the total 14 available. It will be first come, first serve.

I have another event on the night of my room selection. How do I pick my room?
o Dates and times for room selection nights were based solely on academic conflicts. You will have to make a choice of which is more important to you – picking your room for next year or attending an extracurricular function.

Do both me and my roommate need to be present to pick our room?
o Yes. Each roommate will receive one number. You will not receive a number until both are present

How will floors be intermixed by classes?
o As rooms are filled in, other rooms will be blacked out in order to keep floors intermixed by years and to not have large clumps/clusters of upperclassmen or first years per floor. The RCD will block off rooms as the process progresses in order to maintain a proper balance on each floor.

Can I get the same room that I have now for next year?
o Only if you are staying with your current roommate. Otherwise, no. Due to the limited numbers you will not be able to
have priority over your current single.

I am currently in an ADA Accessible room. Will I be allowed to pick that room again?
o Yes, all rooms not blocked off are up for grabs. HOWEVER, should a student with an ADA requirement come along during the summer, you could be bumped without notice and reassigned to an open space somewhere else in the building.

What if I miss both room selection nights?
o Any student that misses both nights will be able to chose a room between 1pm-5pm in the RCD office on the 27th
