Old Westbury Residence Lottery Selection
As our academic year draws closer to its conclusion, the time has come to begin focusing on next year’s housing assignments. As a current student residing on the SUNY Old Westbury campus within the NYIT Residential complex, you are allowed to participate in the initial room lottery selection process for the 2012 - 2013 academic year.
Download the Residence Lottery Selection Handbook (PDF).
The following items must be completed by Thursday, April 18, 2013 in order to receive a lottery number:
You must complete a Residence Hall Application and Residential Contract for the 2012 - 2013 academic year. Remember that your Residential Contract commits you to living on campus for both the Fall and Spring semesters, a one year contractual commitment. A liquidation fee of $350.00 is assessed to all contracts that are terminated. Applications on-line, please review the application very carefully.
Required is a $300 non-refundable deposit fee that must be paid at the Bursar’s Office. This deposit “reserves your space” and retains your room over others who have yet to complete this process.
You must also receive proof of clearance from the Bursar’s Office. They will stamp your application or give you a clearance wavier noting your student account is paid in full and has a zero balance.
Please take care of any outstanding parking tickets from the SUNY OW and NYIT campus, as this may delay your room sign-up.
You must submit proof that you are registered as a full-time student with at least (12) Undergraduate or (9) Graduate credits for the Fall 2013 semester in order to sign-up.
The residence halls will be closed to all students during the following period: Dec. 20, 2013 - Jan. 19, 2014.
For students who prefer a quiet environment they may choose Kennedy Hall, Quiet hours begin at 9 p.m.
For students who require 10 month housing they should chooses Bolivar hall. Bolivar will be open during defined breaks periods according to the HRL opening schedule.
Fall 2013 returning student move-in begins at 9:00 am on Sunday, Sept. 1.
Priority room selection concludes on Friday, April 26. After this date, all returning unassigned students will be housed on a first received basis of completed applications beginning July 2013, or sooner. Remaining room assignments will be made on the basis of availability. Current residence hall students are guaranteed an assignment only if the required information is received in the Office of Housing and Residential Life by June 1, 2013.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding room sign up, please speak with a residence life staff member.
