Housing Changes

Linfield’s Residence Life has planned multiple changes to housing for the 2012-2013 school year.

The Legacy Apartments, which are off-campus, are becoming “cat-friendly.”

Potter Hall will no longer be considered a substance free or Wellness Hall.

During the summer, Latourette Hall will be renovated.

Dana Hall will be used as double apartments.

Registration Process

Priority is given to those who have the most credit hours, and if a tie occurs between groups, it goes to the student with the most credits in a group. If there is a tie between that, the student with the lowest student identification number gains priority.

Make sure you have a list of your housing preferences just in case you do not get your first choice.

If you want to live in a suburb, each student must have 62 credits minimum or have an approved Suburb Housing Petition.

When going to register, you must bring the housing registration card, which was placed in eligible students’ mailboxes.

Registration will take place in the upper gym, and you have to bring your student ID card.

A contract will be signed when you sign up for a room. You cannot hold open spaces for students who are not eligible to register or won’t be on campus.

If you are unable to attend registration, you have to arrange with someone to choose for you. They must bring your housing preference card and a note signed by you.

A student can only register once for housing and you must have enough students to fill the room.
