Room Selection for Returning Students

On-campus housing for the 2022-2023 school year will be limited and in high demand as we prepare to welcome another first-year class to join us on Rocky Top next year. To accommodate continuing students on campus, Room Selection eligibility will be determined through a weighted randomized lottery process that will include some favoring toward current first-year students.
