Selecting a Room

How are Room Selection Lottery Times Assigned?

Unable to Login at Your Lottery Time?

If you can’t login at your designated lottery time, you may login any time after that. You can select a space up until midnight on your designated Room Selection Day*. Please be aware that by logging in after your designated lottery time, you may have a smaller selection of spaces to choose from.

* I-House Room Selection will have different start and end times. You will receive an email with specific instructions which list the start and end times.

Room Selection Choices

A finite number of spaces are set aside for selection by eligible room selection students. Students will be able to choose from spaces allocated to their room selection category and/or designated housing area. Due to space limitations, the type or location of housing you prefer may not be available during your Room Selection time. 

We highly encourage you to view the current space availability list prior to logging in to select your space. Check the list of deadlines for the particular date when a preview of spaces will be available.

Delayed Assignments

If spaces are no longer available during Room Selection Sign-Up, you will automatically be added to the Delayed Assignment List.  Students will have two (2) options:


Living on Campus

As a member of our campus and residential community, you will join your fellow students, our staff and faculty in support of the UCSD Principles of Community. Within these principles, we collectively agree to support a community free from discrimination while promoting individuality and diversity within the bounds of courtesy, sensitivity, confidentiality, respect and safety where all residents can coexist regardless of race, ethnicity, age, disability, sexual orientation, religion and political beliefs.

Non-discrimination Statement

The University of California, in accordance with applicable Federal and State law and University policy, does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, disability, age, medical condition (cancer related), ancestry, marital status, citizenship, sexual orientation, or status as a Vietnam-era veteran or special disabled veteran. The University also prohibits sexual harassment. This nondiscrimination policy covers admission, housing, financial aid, educational services, and student employment.
