Triple Room Sign-ups ... and Ocean View Apartments
We prefer, as do most students, for rooms and apartments to be filled by mutual selection. The requirement to "fill" a room in order to reserve it remains in force throughout housing sign-ups.
Some triples and apartments will be reserved in advance by Squatters Rights, and some apartments may be reserved in advance by group request for Ocean View ( Ocean View Apartments). We offer a third opportunity for students to select a triple room or apartment, provided the triple or apartment is "filled." We call this "triple room sign-up day," and we also include Ocean View in this opportunity. We schedule this on a separate day, prior to when double rooms may be selected, so students will have time to re-group in the event they are unable to reserve a triple room or apartment.
On triple room sign-up day, groups who can fill a triple or apartment may reserve one at the earliest housing sign-up time amongst the group members. However, all group members must make the reservation in person, or have arranged authorization in advance with a proxy authorization. Cell phone calls made by, or on behalf of, an absent group member will not suffice for attending the Housing Selection event in person or having submitted the online proxy form.
Triple rooms and apartments which remain available after triple room sign-up day may be selected during the "double room sign-up days" but the requirement to "fill" the room or apartment remains in force.
**IMPORTANT RESTRICTION: Students who reserve a triple room or apartment on Triple Room Sign-Up day will not be allowed to cancel their reservation (in order to request different housing on-campus or off-campus commuting) until the week after all of housing sign-ups have concluded (i.e. after the last Housing Selection event in April). This prohibition is enforced to preserve the integrity of housing sign-ups for all involved, and to prevent confusion which could be caused by changing assignments. The Housing Selection event takes place in upper KSC lounge (see Timeline and Deadlines, Housing Sign-Up Time).
