Each spring semester, students planning to return to Macalester the following academic year will select rooms during Room draws using their MyHousing Self-Service portal (1600grand > Student Life>My Housing Self-Service). Since rising juniors and rising seniors have the option to live off campus, selection is divided into draws for rising juniors and seniors, and draws for rising sophomores. All draws are first-come, first-served.
Current students also have the option of living in the specialty housing areas next year: Language houses, Arabic House, Eco House, Interfaith House, Veggie Co-op, Summit House, Cultural House and All Gender Community. Specialty Housing areas are filled before room draw. Students interested in living in a Language or Specialty House, should apply directly to the sponsoring department.
