Overview

Housing Selection is an on-line process for returning students.  Exceptions to the on-line process are: Keys to Degrees, Resident Assistants, ADA, and Healthy Living Community themed housing.  Selection is done based solely on earned credits as of January 28, 2017.  Each student who is eligible for room selection receives a selection date and time. Since selection is done on-line, students may access their COAST accounts during their selection time from anywhere an internet connection is available. 

Students may choose a room any time after their assigned selection time, but not before. Once a student has chosen a room in the online system, they are removed from the Housing Selection Process and may NOT make any changes to their decision for the duration of Housing Selection. Student room selection times are fully dependent on how many credits each student has.  Any room that matches the student gender, and is available, may be selected regardless of age or class standing (unless otherwise noted).

In order to be eligible to participate in Housing Selection every student MUST:

    a. Be financially cleared by April 1ST.

     b. Be a current on-campus resident, on Study Abroad, or on Temporary Commuter Status (Semester Internship).

     c. Be approved to return from leave of absence or be readmitted and deposited by April 1ST.  A note about how to/where to go to be readmitted

     d. Not have submitted a Change of Residency Application form to live Off-Campus for the Fall semester by April 1ST.

     e. Have submitted a Change of Residency Application if the students commuting status was a condition of enrollment and the student now wants to be a resident student.

Reminder:  On campus living is for students enrolled full time (12 credits or more) in a course of study for the 2017-2018 academic year.  Any student who is registered for less than 12 credits on May 1, will be removed from housing and placed on a waiting list.  If the student achieves full time enrollment status at a later date, the student will be placed in housing on a space available basis.

Credit System

A students’ place in the room selection process is determined by the number of EARNED credit hours as of January 28, 2017.  For First Year students (defined as first time to college), AP and dual enrollment credits earned during high school, will not be counted.  AP and dual enrollment credits will be factored into the earned credit hour total for other students.  Transfer credits will be included in the earned credit total for those students who transferred to Endicott after completing post high school coursework at another college or university prior to enrolling at Endicott.

Pull-in Requirements:

  • Students may ‘pull in’ others who are no more than 9 credits below them.  Students may always ‘pull in’ a student with more credits than themselves (i.e. a student with 80 credits may pull in someone with 71 or more credits).

  • Pull-ins must be of same gender

1. Housing Selection is an online process with the exception of administrative pre-placements.

 

2.  When it is time for a student to select, log onto the COAST system and navigate to the Room Selection page. If it is NOT a student’s time to choose a room, he/she will see an error and the system will not allow access to the room selection process.  Each room that is available should have an entry for each bed space open in the room or show the name of the person who has already chosen to live in the room. A student will only be able to see and select rooms and buildings that are available at their Room Selection time.

  • Note: A student may NOT choose a room before their assigned selection time.  A student may reserve a room at any point after their Housing Selection time has passed until the end of the room selection process.

3.  Once a student finds a building/room that they like, click on the link which places the room on hold for the next two minutes.  Please note that at this time other students will not be able to see this room, allowing time to enter any necessary information.  If a student chooses to not place himself/herself in this room, after the two minute window, the room will become available for viewing by others that are selecting. 

 

Please Note:

  • During the first two days of room selection, students must be able to fill the entire suite.  If students are unable to do so, they will not be able to select the space.

  • Rooms may be searched by capacity available.

4. Once a student has confirmed their room selection, the student will be taken to a final screen that confirms that they are now signed up for (your choice) hall and (your choice) room with x, y, z roommates/suitemates (if any).  If the student has signed up for a suite, the system will prompt the student to determine if the assignments currently shown on screen indicate that individuals are living in the correct room together within the suite.  If the student wishes to reconfigure roommates and room assignments within the suite, the student will be able to do so, on this screen.  Once all roommates and suitemates are in the desired spaces within the suite, the student will be prompted to confirm that the room selection, hall, roommate and roommate/suite space configuration is as the student wishes it to be.

 

5. At this point a student may log out of the system or proceed to other areas of the COAST system.  Students will not be let back into the room selection system. Once a student finalizes his/her room selection they may not make any changes until after Housing Selection has finished.

 

Change of Residence Application (CORA)

 

1. Students enter this process when they would like to change from living On-Campus to living Off-Campus, or vice versa. Please see the Change of Residency Application. Students going on Study Abroad do not have to complete the CORA form.

 

2. Any student who changes his/her residential status from commuter to resident will be placed on a space available basis after Housing Selection is complete.

 

3.  Students who are applying for full semester internship and waiting for approval of their internship plans, must complete a Declaration of Intent form.  This form notifies the Office of Residence Life that the student would like to participate in the Housing Selection process, but that the student’s need for housing may change in the near future based on approval of the student’s internship program. Students who participate in the Housing Selection process and change their residency status due to internship or study abroad approval without filing a Declaration of Intent will lose their $500 continuation deposit.

 

4. Students who are not registered as full-time by May 1, 2017 will be removed from housing.

 

Room Consolidation

The Office of Residence Life reserves the right to consolidate students together and reassign students as necessary to optimize the utilization of vacancies/rooms on campus.

 

Expanded Occupancy

Should space needs materialize, the College reserves the option to expand occupancy in halls that permit expansion including (Bayview and Stoneridge).  Students who remain in expanded occupancy spaces after specified dates each semester are eligible for an expanded occupancy credit of $750 to their student account.

 

Harassment/Bullying

It is an expectation that all students participating in the room selection process will do so without fear of intimidation, coercion, or harassment from others.  Harassment is defined in the Student Code of Conduct on pages 18 - 19 of the Student Handbook.

Students claiming to be experiencing harassment associated with the room selection process in person, in writing, via electronic media or via third party must submit a report in writing to the Office of Student Affairs for possible conduct action.

If any member of a room or living unit is accused of alleged harassment as a result of the room selection process, the room assignment for the entire group will be placed on hold pending the outcome of a conduct case.  Should any member of the living unit be found responsible for a violation of the harassment policy all members of the living unit (except the victim of the harassment) will be removed from the selected housing and placed in beds on a space available basis at the conclusion of the housing selection process.

Any student filing a false claim of harassment may be charged with providing false information through the conduct system.

 

If you have any questions or concerns please contact the Office of Residence Life at 978.232.2141 or reslife@endicott.edu
