Below is a list of important dates for our current students that include when applications
will be made available, application deadlines, off campus waivers, and lottery draw

you to check your email for updates. You will be receiving more information throughout
J-Term and the beginning of spring semester regarding various housing opportunities
for the upcoming school year from the Office of Residence Life and Housing.
All applications will be made available to students online at the Residence Life

can apply for more than one housing option for the upcoming school year. If a student
is selected for more than one housing option they will need to sign a contact stating
which option they would like within 24 hours of being selected.
In order to apply for on campus housing students must be cleared with the Business
Office. If you have any questions you can contact Wendy Farmer at 804-752-3136.
For students who will be studying abroad in the fall please note the College will
not be able to hold spaces in any on campus housing while you are abroad. Those
students studying abroad in the fall will be guaranteed housing when they return

Mary Branch Singles Lottery
As many of you know we have a select amount of singles in the Mary Branch basement.
This year we have decided to open these up by lottery to students who are interested
in these rooms. The rooms vary in size, and we have a select number of male and
female rooms up for lottery. If you are interested please come by the Office of
Residence Life and Housing and sign up for the Mary Branch Single Lottery. You must
see Carol Bailey to sign up. This lottery will be based off seniority and the sign
up begins on March 3rd at 9am and will close at 4pm on March 7th.
The lottery drawn for these rooms will be in early April.
Winners will be notified via email and will have 48 hours to accept or decline the
single room. If you are selected for a Mary Branch single, you will not need to
go through the general housing lottery. If you have any questions please feel free
to contact Carol Bailey in the Office of Residence Life and Housing at
Off Campus Waivers
Randolph-Macon College requires that all students live in College-owned residence
halls unless they are:
Due to capacity constraints, there will be times when the College will permit other
students to move off-campus. When this permission is given, the criteria for students
selected will be based on class seniority and will be regulated by the Office of
Residence Life & Housing. The authorization to live off-campus will be granted
for that particular academic year only. A waiver must be signed and approved in
the Office of Residence Life & Housing for every student living off-campus.
Waivers may be revoked at any time due to the unacceptable behavior of that student.
If this Residence Requirement Waiver is not completed, the student will be billed
for room and board as a resident student.
Students who wish to request an off campus waiver and meet the criteria listed above
should complete the online request form by April 1, 2014. This form is available
Students who wish to request an off campus waiver and do not meet the criteria listed
above should submit a written request to the Director of Residence of Life and Housing
office by emailing him at firstname.lastname@example.org
by April 1, 2014. The Director of Residence Life and Housing will review all requests
and determine those to be approved.
