How Does Housing Selection Work?
All returning students in the class of 2021, 2022, and 2023 must take part in Housing Selection for the 2020 - 2021 Academic Year. 

Every student will receive a lottery number in their Skidmore email. Lottery numbers will be released to all students eligible for housing selection in early February.

All lottery numbers are random other than for two factors: class year and prior year's third.

There are 4 separate processes, 3 of which are online through our Housing Management System.
