2018-19 Apartment Selection

So you want to live in Frederiksen Court, Legacy, or University Village? Selection of spaces in these apartment communities will take place according to the below schedule. Please keep in mind: 

  • All selection takes place in AccessPlus (A+).
    • All selection processes begin at 6:00 am on the date indicated.
  • When you can select depends on your group size and where your group members live for spring 2018.
  • Only one member of each group can be searching in A+ at a time.
    • This person is called your Search Leader.
      • If another group member tries to search for spaces, the first person will be "bounced out" and will lose any in-progress selections.
      • Groups should discuss ahead of time who their Search Leader will be.
  • Only four 5-Person apartments exist in Legacy and it is unlikely more than one will be vacant.
    • We strongly suggest that 5-Person groups have a back-up plan prior to the start of selection.
