Priority in the Room Selection process is determined by a point-value system based on seniority. Priority is assigned as follows:
- Rising seniors: 30 pts.
- Rising juniors: 20 pts.
- Rising sophomores: 10 pts.
Priority is based on the year a student entered Columbia and the number of terms s/he has resided in on-campus housing. Priority does not benefit students who graduate early.
The point value of groups participating in In-Person Group Selection or applying as a group for Online Selection is the average value of all Columbia group members (BC students are not figured into the average).
