The 2019-2020 Returning Student

Housing Assignment Process 


Here's an easy step-by-step guide....

STEP #1:  First, and most importantly, read the 2019-2020 Returning Student Housing Assignment Process (HAP) Instructions. This document describes how the HAP works and provides all the important information you need to know as you sign up for 2019-2020 on-campus housing.

STEP #2:  You need to read the 2019-2020 Residence Area Occupancy Agreement (RAOA) in its entirety. After reading it, print off the form on the sixth page and complete it. 

STEP #3:  If you are seeking housing in BT or HH next year, click on the preference form below. With this form, you can request your residence area preference, your room type preference and roommate preference. Return the Preference Form to the RPS office (along with your completed Residence Area Occupancy Agreement) no later than 4:00 pm on Thursday, March 28th.

STEP #4:  If you are seeking housing in the Flagg Townhouse Apartment Complex next year...... First things first, you need to form a group with 4 or 6 individuals in it. If you need assistance forming a group, please contact the RPS office.

Once you have a group of 4 or 6 formed, decide who your group spokesperson is going to be. Pick a really responsible person who checks their College e-mail account and phone messages daily because if we have any questions or issues with your group, this is the person we are going to contact!! No response? The process goes on without you!

Next, click on the link below and you will be able to check out the apartments that are available to your size group in the coming year. Talk to each other about where you would like to live within the Complex.

On to the completion of your preference form.....Remember, your group only needs to print off and submit one form. The form requires you to do four important things: 1) tell us who is in your group and what bedroom each person will live in; 2) have each person sign and date the form so we know that the people listed on the form are agreeing to live together; 3) decide who will get the apartment's HAP parking permit; and 4) rank order your apartment location choices ("1" being your first choice, "2" your second, and so on....). TH preference forms are due to the RPS office in Townhouse #89 (along with the Residence Area Occupancy Agreements for the ENTIRE group) no later than 4:00 pm on Thursday, March 28th.

If you formed a group of 4, print off this form:

STEP #5:  Don't forget that you must clear all outstanding charges on your student account and register for Fall 2019 classes no later than Wednesday, May 1st. 

STEP #6:  Assignments to specific rooms and/or apartments will be made during the week of April 1st. Townhouse assignments will be sent to each group's spokesperson via e-mail. Berkshire Towers and Hoosac Hall assignments will be selected in person. The date, time and location of the Berkshire Towers/Hoosac Hall assignment process will be announced later.

STEP #7:  As always, if you have any questions or concerns AND have read all the information provided above, please contact the RPS office by writing us an e-mail at rps@mcla.edu, calling 413-662-5249 or stopping by our office in Townhouse #89.
