Decisions on who receives an apartment, and which apartment they receive are based on earned credit hours. The total credits for each apartment group were added together, and apartments were assigned in descending order (according to first available preference).

If the apartment does not remain full at any time during the summer or during the academic year, the persons remaining in the apartment can fill that space within a 72 hour time period of that space becoming empty. If the space is not filled within that time frame, the Student Development Office has the right to fill that space. If opposition is met, the Student Development has the right to ask the remaining student(s) to move or place additional housing charges for the individuals remaining in the apartment.
