Returning Student Single Room Lottery


The Single Room Lottery is available for for current residence hall students only. 
 

Single Room Lottery General Timeline and Process


  • Mid-Late February:
    • Single Room Lottery page opens to current residents to sign up for the single room lottery.
      • Go to https://portalx.housing.uwosh.edu to sign up for the lottery.
      • Students with already complete applications only need to indicate their preference for a Single Room on the Single Room Lottery page and click “Save & Continue” to confirm.
  • Late February:
    • Single Room Lottery page closes.
      • Note: Students wishing to be considered for the Single Room Lottery must have a complete housing application by the Single Room Lottery deadline. 
  • Early March:
    • Notification goes out to students who receive a single room for next year.
      • Notification will be sent to your UWO e-mail account.
      • Students not receiving a single room will be notified as well.

Applying for the lottery is not associated with choosing a specific room (meaning you will still need to pick a room whether you receive a single or not.)

 

General Single Room Lottery Information


  • Each and every resident desiring a single room must apply for the single room lottery. This includes anyone currently in a single room, regardless of how obtained.
NOTE: You are still encouraged to apply for the single room lottery.
  • If you have a single room as a documented housing accommodation or recommended room assignment through Accessibility Services and will return to campus next year, you must complete the Single Room Lottery page indicating your interest in a Single Room.

 

Single Room Distribution


A limited number of single rooms will be allotted for the upcoming school term. There will not be a predetermined number of men’ s or women’s singles. Only those individuals who successfully participated in the Single Room Lottery will be eligible to be granted a single room.

NOTE: Time of Housing Application completion and/or time of Single Room Lottery completion does NOT impact the awarding of Single Rooms.

Anyone required to live on campus who has received a single room as a documented housing accommodation or as a recommended room assignment through Accessibility Center/Dean of Students office will be granted a single. These will then be subtracted from the total number of singles available.

If space permits, the remaining applications will form the single room waiting list.
