As a reminder, In-Person Group Selection is April 2 to April 4 and April 9 to April 11 in John Jay Lounge.
Make sure you've reviewed all the information in the Room Selection section of our website to ensure you understand the process. In addition, review our Renovations page to help you develop your Room Selection strategy.
In particular, please note that, as part of ongoing repairs and upgrades, East Campus suites will not have traditional ovens or range stove tops during the 2018-19 academic year. Until the work is completed, Columbia Housing will provide a convection microwave oven and a hot plate for each suite in East Campus. With hot air circulation provided by the convection functionality, these ovens provide a much higher level of cooking quality and flexibility than regular microwaves, including features that simulate traditional grilling and frying. Students should be able to achieve results similar to what they could in a traditional oven. The hot plates being provided are 1000 watts in power, which will provide fast and efficient heating similar to a traditional range. Photos are available below.
Most other renovations taking place will not provide much impact on your daily life during the 2018-19 academic year but, again, please make sure you are aware prior to your Room Selection appointment.
