With so many changes to the housing process this year, Florida Southern College has is offering Individual Community Information sessions to help students figure out their options.

The sessions will be held March 11-13. Students must contact their Resident Advisor or Hall Director for more details about time and location. Also, on March 13-14, and March 26-27, you can stop by Wynee’s Bistro between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. for question and answer sessions.

“I plan to attend one of the question and answer sessions just to finalize my housing choice and ask my unanswered housing questions,” Jennifer Gray, freshman, said.

Every student should have received an email by March 4 with a Housing Selection Number. These numbers are based on GPA and total credit hours and range from 1-1,400, with the lower numbers having the best priority.

For the apartments, Colony Arms, Lake Morton and Lake Hollingsworth, students should have received an invitation by March 4. Students that qualify must have at least a 2.75 cumulative GPA through the Fall 2012 semester, four semesters at college, and be in good standing with FSC. These students must also indicate the apartments tab on the “preferred community” portion of the housing application, which needs to be submitted online by 5 p.m. on March 15 or in person from 3-7 p.m. on March 21 in the Thrift Alumni Room.

Students who are homesteading at Miller Hall, Colony Arms or Lake Morton, must have that indicated on the housing application, which must be turned in electronically by 5 p.m. on March 15.

For second-year students who do not wish to have a single in Hollis Hall, which is open to second through fourth year students, they can choose to live in the Second-Year Experience in Dell Hall. This must be marked as the “preferred community” on the housing application due electronically by March 29 at 5 p.m. for these students.

Students wishing to live in Greek Village next semester must consult the chapter president, house manager, and/or the chapter advisor to be on the list of assigned spaces for the chapter house. These housing rosters, with alternates, must be submitted by 5 p.m. on March 22 along with each of those students electronically submitting their housing application by this time.

Choosing roommates is required for any students living in a double room, a Miller Hall suite, or an apartment so as to fill up all the spaces for each room or suite. Roommates will sign up with the lowest housing selection number among the group. Students who do not have a roommate can use the Roommate Locator Service at the Office of Community Living.

Housing applications will be accepted online no later than April 3. After that, students can go to Ordway 162 from 3-7 p.m. on April 8-9 for the In-person Housing Selection. Students must be clear of holds and be enrolled full time for the Fall 2013 semester by April 1 to be granted a housing assignment.

For more information, students can log onto the portal and go to the Campus Life tab. For additional information and the online housing application, go to living. If students have any questions, they can contact the Office of Community Living at (863) 680-4206.
