Upperclass Housing Assignments
Vanderbilt University offers a wide variety of housing options for returning upperclass students. As a result, the upperclass assignment process is a complex one. It is important to understand the rules and procedures governing this process in order to make intelligent and well-informed choices.
The Upperclass assignment process is a system based upon personal choice. Generally, upperclass undergraduate students select the rooms in which they will live. The University designates buildings, floors, suites, apartments, and lodges by gender so that men and women will have a roughly proportionate opportunity to be assigned to the various types of accommodations available on campus.
All returning, single, undergraduate students currently enrolled at Vanderbilt are eligible to participate in the housing application and assignment process.Those eligible include:

Students Participating in Overseas Programs or Internships:
Students who intend to study in a Vanderbilt Overseas Program or participate in an internship outside of Davidson County during the Fall Semester 2013 are not eligible to participate in the random selection process.
Students who have applied to an overseas program, but are uncertain as to their status or their participation, may only take part in the selection of single and double accommodations; they may not participate in the suite or apartment reservation or selection processes. Students who select a single or double room on campus and later decide to participate in an overseas program must notify the Office of Housing and Residential Education, in writing, at least sixty (60) days prior to the start of the semester to request cancellation of their housing contracts.
Students participating in overseas programs or internships during the Fall Semester of 2013 may be required to live on-campus during the Spring Semester of 2014, should they decide to return to the University. Returning students will be assigned to available housing.
