Selection Priority

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 is the average value of all Columbia group members (only rising BC students are eligible and they receive 30pts).
