Room Selection is the process by which eligible continuing students may secure housing for the following academic year. It includes the Housing Lottery, Pre-Lottery Disability Housing Accommodations (through CARDS), BC/CU Housing Exchange, and the Summer Assignment List.
Information about Room Selection for the 2021-2020 academic year will be available in February 2021.
Note: students who wish to request a housing accommodation must submit the CARDS Request Form by January 29th, 2021. For more information, please visit barnard.edu/disability-services/housing-accommodations,
If I cancel my housing for Fall 2020 or Spring 2021 (and live off-campus or at home), will I be able to live in campus housing again in the future?
The following groups of students will be eligible to take part in the 2021-2022 Room Selection process as long as they remain enrolled full-time for the 2020-21 academic year (i.e. do not take a leave of absence):
- Continuing students who participated in the 2020-21 Room Selection process
- 2020 First Year students
Other students (including transfers, commuters, and students who take or return from a leave of absence) may apply for 2021-2022 campus housing but will not be eligible for the 2021 Room Selection process (even if they lived in campus housing for Fall 2020 or Spring 2021 as an approved exception).
Please note that while the College is always hopeful to provide housing to as many applicants as possible, housing cannot be guaranteed for students who are not eligible for or do not take part in the Room Selection process.
