Upperclass Housing
Residence Life and Housing

Upperclass Housing

Upperclassmen students reside in both traditional residence halls and suite-style spaces on both campuses. Moravian College also offers unique housing opportunities including special interest housing, fraternity and sorority housing, and gender-inclusive housing. Fraternity and sorority housing is limited to members of the respective organizations. 


Upperclass Housing Assignment & Selection Processes

General Selection is the process by which returning students may choose their housing assignment and roommates for the upcoming academic year. Some students may choose their housing assignment through a Pre-Selection processes (medical placements, Greek Housing, and Special Interest Housing). The Office of Housing & Event Management will assign students who do not participate in housing selection.

Information and timelines for the General Selection and Pre-Selection processes can be found in the Guide to Housing Selection (coming January 2018).
