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 2nd at 9am and will close at 4pm on March 6th.
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 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, 2015. This form is available
