2014 Winter and Spring Term Housing Selection for Students Returning from EHP, Exchange, or Leave-of-Absence
All first and second year students are required to reside on campus and are guaranteed housing. You can request a waiver for this requirement if you meet one of the following requirement:
- You are married
- You are 21 years of age or older as of September 1, 2013
- You are living at home with a parent/guardian
In order to receive a residency waiver, you need to fill out the on-line residency waiver form located in the side column on this page by Monday, December 2nd. (If you do not pick a room during this room selection and did not complete a residency waiver (if you meet waiver requirements) we will place you in a room assignment.
Beginning Monday, November 25th at 9AM Eastern Standard Time, you will be able to log on to the housing portal (starrez.risd.edu) to view available rooms for winter session and spring semester.
On Monday, December 2nd the portal will open for room selection. Students who must fulfill the residency requirement (freshman or sophomore status) will be able to log on from 9am until 12pm Eastern Standard Time to select a room. After 12 Noon, the portal will be open to all students returning to RISD who wish to return to campus.
You must fully complete the the housing contract by Sunday, December 8th. If you do not complete the housing contract upon selecting a room, we will release the hold on your selected room. If this happens to you, you will receive an email notification and you will have to return to the portal and pick another room.
A number of students are returning to campus for Winter Session and Spring Semester and there are a limited number of available rooms. This means that the selection of rooms is smaller than it is for the full academic year housing process. We cannot guarantee the availability of certain room types. If you are returning from a leave of absence and your status is still pending with the Registrar's Office on Monday, December 2nd you will not be able to participate in this room selection. Please try and complete the returning leave of absence process as soon as possible.
