Housing Lottery | 2022 - This process in now closed (look for updates in March 2023)

The Housing Lottery is an optional process for current students enrolled in Spring 2022 undergraduate classes (and planning to enroll in Fall 2022 undergraduate classes) at Pacific to select housing, roommates and meal plans for the 2022-23 academic year. The Housing Lottery process occurs entirely online.

Information will be e-mailed to residential students beginning in March. E-mails will also be sent to all undergraduate students currently living off campus that have not met the residency requirement yet. All other current undergraduate students interested in on-campus housing should inquire with the Department of Housing beginning March 14 but prior to the last day to submit the application (deadline Friday, April 1 at 4:00 p.m.). You can connect with the Department of Housing by submitting a ticket using the Housing Inquiry form.

The Housing Lottery gives returning students an opportunity to select their room and roommate first. There is no entrance fee required but after a room is selected, cancelation fees apply. The amount is dependent on the date canceled.

Eligible students, who choose not to participate by published deadlines and then seek housing later or are required to live on-campus, will participate in the new student housing application process over the summer. Cancelation fees apply for this process as well.

Housing staff are available during Virtual Office Hours to assist students with questions and support them in with this process.
