You paid your housing deposit, so what’s next?

Hey friends! If you’re anything like me, seeing that $300 leave your account for the housing deposit was a little difficult, but well worth it! Living on campus is a privilege that awards you with so many great opportunities, including: a sense of community, independence, responsibility, and so much more! But, now that the housing deposit is paid, you’re probably wondering what happens next?! Below are some important dates to put in your FYE planner so that you’re prepared for the next few months!


MARCH 1 – Housing Portal will be open for Roommate Selection

In order to select roommates and be selected, students must have completed their housing application and must have paid their deposit. From the Housing Portal, you can match up with potential roommates, determine who has the highest lottery number (Lottery Numbers will be released later on) and select your space for Fall 2017. If, for some reason, you cannot find the person that you are searching for, please email for assistance.



MARCH 3 – Spring Break Application Due

If you are in need housing over Spring Break, the application is available online at: 

The spring break application is due by Friday March 3, 2017 by 5 p.m. to Residence Life or the ARD/AC of Bates Complex. By signing up and paying for this housing you will be able to stay on campus over Spring Break in the Bates Residence Complex. This will only include housing, no meals will be provided since the Dining Halls are closed during this time.


APRIL 11th, 12th, 13th – Housing Selection

During this time you will be able to officially pick where you and your roommate(s) want to live for the 2017/18 Academic year. Make sure that you select your roommates prior to these dates and that they select you in return. All roommate groups must be fully matched. 



Things to keep in mind:

  • All selection participants must be registered for at least 12 credits (Full-Time) by April 5th
  • If you have any questions or concerns, please contact or by calling the Residence Life Office at (978) 542-6416.
  • You can also come to the First Year Expereince office (Meier Hall 100A) and ask us any questions you may have about more minimal details! Most of our mentors have lived in the Residence Halls and can answer your questions and concerns! Good luck!
