There are two parts to the housing process: application and sign-up.
If two or more groups of applicants are tied for number of hours completed, the order of these groups will be determined at random. The Student Services staff will conduct the random ordering of these groups with a student present.
Qualifications for Student Apartments
Because of the benefit of residential living both to students’ academic success and students’ development, Ouachita’s apartments are limited to students who meet the following criteria:
Penalties and Consequences
In general, a group not following the process guidelines may be added at the bottom of the housing list. Incomplete applications such as only 2 or 3 applicants; late application; application problem, such as one person showing up on two applications; falsifying information on an application — all could result in being placed at the bottom of the housing list.
Students also forfeit their place in line if they miss or show up late to their housing appointment. They will be given a new housing appointment.
Only if all four members of the group are in class will missing the housing appointment not result in being moved to the bottom of the list. Group members in this situation are responsible for communicating this to Student Services to prevent being penalized.
