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 times. Please remember that these dates could be subject to change, so we encourage you to check your email for updates. Students will receive more information throughout J-Term and at 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 and Housing website as well as in the HIVE located in Mary Branch Middle. Students 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 an agreement stating which option they would like within 24 hours of being selected.
In order to be eligible for on campus housing for the upcoming year 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 to R-MC in the spring.

Mary Branch Singles LotteryAs many of you know we have a select amount of singles in the Mary Branch basement.

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.

Off Campus WaiversRandolph-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 and approved by the College, 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 at https://secure.rmc.edu/reslife/offcampuswaiver.aspx. Only current students can click on this link and fill out this form.
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.
