Pre-Selection Processes
Residence Life and Housing


There are a number of pre-selection processes in which students are assigned housing before General Selection takes place. Students assigned to housing via one of the following processes will not be issued General Selection Admission Tickets.

Pre-Selection Information Sessions will be held Tuesday, February 11 & Wednesday, February 12 at 6pm in the HUB Air Products Room.

Eligible students may apply to live off-campus for the 2020-2021 academic year. Current off-campus students must reapply. Off-campus releases are not guaranteed. The college anticipates releasing approximately 50 students off-campus for the 2020-2021 academic year. Students should not sign a lease unless they receive notice from the College that they have been approved.

  • Friday, February 28 at 4:30pm: Housing Status Application due
  • Friday, March 13: Decisions communicated via email
  • Friday, March 20: Approved students must accept or decline their offer

Organizational Housing is designed to provide environmental support to the academic and co-curricular elements of the College. It is an opportunity for active members of a USG recognized club/organization or Moravian College athletic team to establish a living space that meets the goals and interests of the group.

  • Friday, February 28 at 4:30PM: Housing Status Application due (as individuals) & Organizational Housing Application due (one per group).
  • Monday, March 9 & Tuesday, March 10: Organizational House Leader meets with the Office of Housing & Event Management.

Room assignments within the chapter house are the responsibility of each organization’s leadership. If a member of a fraternity or sorority participates in another pre-selection process and their name appears on a chapter housing roster, the fraternity or sorority housing status will supersede all other pre-selection processes and the individual will be expected to reside in the organization’s house. Members of Greek organizations will not be considered for off-campus release or General Selection until a complete list of residents and three viable alternate members are provided to the Office of Greek Life.

  • Wednesday, February 5: Fraternities & sororities will receive information at Greek Council 
  • Friday, February 28 at 4:30pm: Housing Status Application due

Students requesting a specific housing arrangement based on a disability, medical condition, or extenuating circumstance should participate in this pre-selection process. A student cannot use this process to make arrangements for a potential roommate.

  • Friday, February 28 at 4:30pm: Housing Status Application due
  • Friday, March 13: Conditional decisions communicated via email
  • Before Friday, March 13 at Noon: Medical Documentation due. Students seeking an medical accommodation for the first time must meet with and submit specific professional documentation to the Academic & Accessibility Support Center before the deadline. Students currently receiving an accommodation do not need to resubmit documentation unless there has been a change in their diagnosis or need. If supporting documentation is not provided by the deadline, the student will be entered in the General Selection process.
  • Monday, March 23 & Tuesday, March 24: Assignments Determined

Students interested in being part of the 2020-2021 Residence Life Staff will be notified of their status on Thursday, February 27. Residence Life Staff in non-traditional communities may have an opportunity to pull-in roommates in spaces designated by the Office of Residence Life. 

The Room Retention Application is designed to provide students the option of selecting their current room/suite for the next academic year. To retain a room in a traditional residence hall or a suite in a suite-style building, 50% or more of the current residents must return to the space. All other vacancies in the room/suite must be filled with students before the application deadline of Thursday, March 26, 2020.
