2018-2019 Room Selection

Agnes Scott College is a residential liberal arts institution. The residential environment is a key component of each student’s college experience. Students enrolled at Agnes Scott College are expected to live in on-campus housing for the duration of their tenure at the college. The housing room selection process is a structured process to ensure students are placed in on-campus housing in the most objective way possible.  

Agnes Scott offers a wide variety of housing options and emphasizes personal choice in a competitive assignment process. We encourage you to explore the diverse options available for on-campus living with visits to different residence halls and discussions with your peers.

The reapplication process for current/returning students includes registering for classes for the upcoming fall semester and participating in the room-mate and room selection process (or being assigned) during the months of March and April of each year. Current students will receive instructions on "How to apply" via email early during the spring semester. Students who require accommodations or who plan to request to live off-campus are required to complete specific forms (due March 1st). These forms can be found on our Policies and Forms page.
