Students,
 
SHoC requests are now being accepted for consideration in advance of the Housing Lottery for 2017-2018 housing. They are DUE by this coming Sunday, April 16.
 
Do NOT wait to submit a request until after the lottery numbers are run. If your situation warrants a SHoC review, submit it by April 16.
 
Requests submitted after Sunday, April 16 will NOT be reviewed in advance of the April 30 Room Draw. So, again, if you want your situation considered before the room draw, submit your SHoC request by April 16.
 
Scroll down for information about the process (it’s slightly different than during the academic year), and for the link to the form.
 
Questions? Feel free to be in touch. Thanks.
 
-Doug

General Info:

If you have a housing assignment situation that you believe cannot be addressed through participation in the General Housing Lottery & Room Draw, including interest in living in Quiet Housing in Thompson, you may submit a Special Housing Considerations Request through the online form found at this link. Applications are due by Sunday, April 16, 2017.

In order for the reviewers to determine the most appropriate response to your request, please be as thorough on the form as you can be. We realize this may require you to share personal information – please know that we are very sensitive to that, and that your information will be held confidentially and used only to inform the decision on your request.


A Note about Title IX Related Requests

If your request is related to a Title IX issue, you may opt to share your rationale for your request directly with the Title IX Coordinator (Toya Camacho), the Title IX Deputy Coordinator (Marlene Sandstrom), and/or the Director of Sexual Assault Prevention & Response (Meg Bossong), and have them speak with other reviewers on your behalf, rather than include your rationale on the form below. The form will give you that option. For more information about Title IX at Williams, click here.
