Housing Selection

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 College offers a wide variety of housing options and emphasizes personal choice in our housing selection. The reapplication process for current/returning students includes registering for classes for the upcoming fall semester and participating in the roommate and room selection process (or being assigned) during the months of March and April of each year. 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.
