Room Selection

In preparation for Residence Life Room Selection 2015-2016 on March 23-27, the Residence Life staff would like to share some information with parents. This is an abridged version of what your student(s) will receive. 

Housing Contract

In order to participate in Room Selection, students must complete the contract online 

Lottery Numbers

All students will be given a randomly assigned lottery number. Lottery numbers will be emailed directly to your student's Queens email account. 


  • Wireman rooms can be selected as entire four person suites or as an individual suite room.
  • South Suites must be selected in entirety (4 people).
  • North Apartments must be selected in entirety.
  • Students cannot select a room without specifying roommate/suitemate, unless a single is being requested.
  • All students without roommates will select at the end of the entire room selection process.
  • Choosing a roommate is an important part of the room selection process. Students are encouraged to self-select the most compatible roommate(s) for the up-coming year. The professional staff members in Residence Life or the Resident Assistants can assist in connecting students looking for a roommate.
