How Does Housing Selection Work?
All returning students must take part in Housing Selection. 

Every student will receive a lottery number in their Skidmore email. Lottery numbers will be released to all students eligible for housing selection on April 5th.

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.
