Room Assignments for First-Year Students

  • Once a prospective student has been accepted to Denison University and has paid the initial deposit, they will be sent a Housing Preference Form in the First-Year Notebook.
  • Students start receiving the Housing Preference Form in late March.
  • The Housing Preference Form is due in early June and is used to make first-year housing assignments.
  • The First-Year Program Office is your contact for any questions.

Room Assignments for Returning Students

  • Rising seniors, juniors and sophomores are housed through a housing lottery process each spring semester.
  • Returning students may live in any housing assignment that is not designated as a First-Year Residence Hall.
  • All residence halls are smoke-free and illegal drug-free. 
  • Returning students are guaranteed a housing assignment within campus housing, but not a specific space or type of room.
