Returning Student Overview

Housing Selection is an on-line process for returning students with the exception of ADA rooms, Resident Assistants and the Healthy Living Community. New Endicott students receive housing preference forms in May and will receive placements in August.

Housing selection is done based on a point system which includes class standing, GPA and judicial status. Each student will receive total points, which they may review. Once points have been finalized, each student 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 points he or she has and any room that matches the student gender and is available may be selected regardless of age or class standing.

Online housing selection normally takes place in April. Returning students should look for the updated information packet posted each year in early March that will be posted on this website and emailed to all students.

In order to participate in Housing Selection every student MUST:

a. Be a current on-campus resident, on Study Abroad, or on Temporary Semester Internship

b. Be enrolled as a full time student and be registered for Fall classes before the start of the first round of room selection

c. Be approved to return from leave of absence or be readmitted by April 1

d. Be financially cleared by April 1. Not have submitted a Change of Residency Status form to live Off-Campus for the Fall semester by April 1


Fall 2014 Online Housing Selection for Returning Students

It’s that time of year. . . housing selection is right around the corner! This year the online selection process will be April 23 – 25, 2014. Students must meet the outlines criteria to participate in the online selection. We encourage all student to read the HOUSING SELECTION PACKET for the complete process or review it on the Residence Life web page, under Housing Selection.

Residences Information

    1. There are many different residential buildings that students can choose from that fall into two separate categories: Traditional style and Suite Style with style. Traditional style residence halls tend to be the largest buildings with long hallways, large community areas, and often one bathroom per floor. Suite Style with kitchen living takes many different forms at Endicott, but is most often arranged so a group of 4-6 students live in a small apartment with a kitchenette, a common area, and a bathroom.
      1. Brindle, Reynolds, Wenham, Hamilton, Winthrop, Birchmont, Rogers, part of Bayview and part of Stoneridge will not be available for selection during the on-line process as they are used for themed housing, which includes freshman housing.
        1. Due to the higher cost and more secluded atmosphere, upperclassmen are usually the first to fill Suite Style housing. Please see the 2014-2015 Fee Schedules online for pricing details. Go to the Endicott website and choose Bursars and click "Tuition and Fees."

          Typical Halls for Class Years

          To be Sophomores: Wenham, Hale, Trexler, Endicott, Bayview, Stoneridge, a few in Marblehead

          As room selection draws to an end, the Office of Residence Life will now work with students in accommodating their housing needs. While these accommodations may not be immediate, please know our goal is always to have 100% satisfaction and assist all students the best we can.

          Please read the below information carefully and follow the procedure that applies to your situation:

          All placements/moves done after the online portion of the housing selection process will be done based on points, seniority and the needs of the College. This is not a first come, first serve process. We appreciate your patience in this process and will continue to do placements and moves throughout the summer. The Office of Residence Life works very hard to make sure we can place students in a location that they are comfortable with. Normally we do 200 to 300 room changes every summer and appreciate your support and patience as we work to try to accommodate everyone’s change requests to the best of our ability.
