Let us be your Guide to Priority Room Selection!

Your Housing contract is the key to Living West and Living West means convenience, affordability, staying in touch with what’s happening on campus and MUCH more!    

Priority Room Sign Up begins February 8, 2011.  

February 8-11, 2011, current UWG students can submit contracts for the 2011-2012 academic year.  During this process, residents will be able to choose to return to the room they currently live in*, or they can choose a different room in one of the housing communities.  

Residents requesting to stay in the same room are allowed to sign up first. From there, we will allow residents interested in moving to different buildings to sign up according to the Room Sign Up Schedule below

Room Sign Up FAQ

How do I complete my housing contract?

Log on to MyUWG and click on the Banweb tab.  From there, click the Housing Application Link and select your term “Fall 2011.”  From there, you will indicate your preferences and submit your preferred roommates (where applicable) name and UWG ID#.  Once you have completed the application, print and sign it.  You’re all done!

 

What if I don’t have a printer in my room?  Here are some options that are available to you:
What do I need to bring with me for Room Sign Up? You will need to bring your UWG ID card (or a state issued photo ID) and your housing contract.  Remember, if you are “pulling someone in” you will need to bring his or her contract(s) as well.

 

How do I live with my friends? 
If you have a friend or a group of friends (up to five students total) with whom you wish to live with, please read the following information carefully:

As rooms will be available on a first-come first-served basis (according to the Room Sign Up Schedule), it is wise to discuss which roommate will be responsible for bringing the signed contracts to the Housing and Residence Life Office. 

The person who is responsible for “pulling in” the other individuals as roommates/suitemates/apartmentmmates will need to bring the signed contracts to the Housing and Residence Life Office and select the group's room(s).

What is “pulling in”?

Pulling in enables two to five people who want to live with each other to do so.  A current student will be allowed to “pull in” his or her friends by submitting their housing contracts all at the same time to ensure that they live in the same room/unit or floor. To be pulled in, all potential roommates should ensure that they have all preferred roommate/suitemate/apartmentmates listed on their signed housing contract when it is submitted.

Please note that we will only accept completed and signed contracts.  No exceptions.  Once we have received a request to for a “pull in,” the person being “pulled” into the room/suite/apartment will be contacted via his or her MyUWG email address to confirm his or her desire to live with the requesting student.  Students will have 24 hours to respond.  Failure to respond in writing will result in the request being voided.  The student will receive another housing assignment from the Department of Housing and Residence Life.

 

Who may I pull in?

Eligible students may only “pull in” other eligible students who desire to live on campus.

 

May I live with someone of the opposite sex?

You may not share a room or a suite with someone of the opposite sex. In some facilities, you are permitted to live next door to someone of the opposite sex if rooms are adjacent (on the same hall).  We cannot have members of the opposite sex share a room, suite or apartment.

What happens if my selected roommates and I don’t fill a suite/ apartment?

Students will be able to select into suites/apartments that have spaces left. If your suite/apartment isn’t full, the Department of Housing and Residence Life will assign students to remaining vacancies.

 

What is the cancellation policy?

Once a student has signed and submitted his or her 2011-2012 Housing Contract, the student must notify the Department of Housing and Residence Life by April 15, 2011, in writing, to be released from his or her contractual obligation.  If this deadline is not met, the student is responsible for the full contract and its terms. Please note, the Housing Contract is for the Full Academic Year (August 2011 Opening through May 2012 Closing).  

 

Are you only allowed to sign up during the 7th-11th of February?

No.  If you haven’t submitted your housing contract by February 11th, your may submit you housing contract to the Housing and Residence Life Office in Mandeville Hall (open Monday-Friday, 8am-5pm).  Please note: your assignment will be made where space is available.
