The housing lottery ended last night with 38 students without housing. The number is smaller than previous years, but is likely to grow a bit in the near future.
The top three numbers in the sophomore class chose into Mertz, Willets, and Dana. The two lodges that were surprisingly left vacant after the block process went early in the evening at 796 and 805.
The last number to select was 1033 and that individual picked into a ML basement single. Both Palmer and Roberts have a two-room triple remaining.
Room change requests will be available on May 1 in Parrish 108. Results from last nights housing lottery will not be posted until Thursday afternoon.
Thanks to Myrt Westphal, Associate Dean for Student Life, for providing the information in this roundup.
