WHAT ARE MY HOUSING OPTIONS?
Double Rooms: Double rooms are designed for two people. Selection of double rooms will be done in lottery number order. Students selecting a double room must come to room selection with their roommate or a proxy form and request their room. Two students requesting a double room will choose at the lower of the two lottery numbers. Students wishing to live in a double room who do not have a roommate should refer to the instructions in the No Roommate section.
Single Rooms: Single rooms are designed for one person and are available in limited numbers. Requests for single rooms will be done in lottery number order. If there are no singles available, students will need to select a double room at the time of Room Selection and/or request to be placed on the single room waiting list. ***Please note that the cost of a single room is higher than a double room. Students must have a $0.00 balance on their PMC account in order to select a single room.
Medical Housing Accommodation: Any student who feels that they need special medical housing accommodations should complete a Housing Accommodation Request Form which can be found here. This form must be completed by a physician/medical practitioner and returned to the Associate Dean of Student Life, Lisa Rodrigues—2nd floor, Student Center.
24-Hour Quiet Building: Residents of the 24-Hour Quiet Building accept a living standard that supports strictly enforced quiet hours 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
9-Month Housing Option: For the Fall 2015 Academic Year we will be offering a 9-month housing option for students. This means that students would be allowed to stay on campus for all breaks (Thanksgiving, Winter, & Spring) for no additional cost! You will be allowed to access your room at all times from the start of school until the very end.
Discounted Housing Option: We will be offering a discounted housing option for students who decide to live in South 1 & 2. Prior to the Winter Break you will be asked to pack up your belongings so that the room can be used by Pine Manor College’s MFA program. We will be offering students a housing discount for their participation in this option.
No Roommate? No Problem! Any student who wishes to live in a double room but does not have a roommate may participate in housing selection based on their lottery number. There are two possible outcomes for students without a roommate: 1) you will be placed in a double room with another student, or 2) you will be placed in an empty double room and either a returning student or a new student (first year or transfer) will be assigned to the other bed in your room.
