Gebbie, Keefe, and Apartments

The suites in Gebbie and Keefe as well as the On-Campus Apartments (any non-Theme house) will be available through a lottery process.  You will register with your friends as a group for the Suite & Apartment Lottery that will be held independently from General Room Selection.

There is no "theme" requirement for these areas.

Independent Living

Both the suites and apartments provide more independent living than traditional residence hall.  Residents will have more privacy, more amenities, and more autonomy.

Of course with more independence, comes more responsibility.  Students who demonstrate an inability to manage this responsibility and within Wheaton Community Standards and the Honor Code will be relocated.

To be eligible to live in a suite or apartment you must be in good academic (not currently on Academic Suspension) and social standing (having no Student Conduct violations that have resulted in either probation or suspension). Those who have concerns about their standing can e-mail Ed Burnett.

Lottery Process

Obtaining a suite or apartment will be run through a special lottery.  Groups will register for the lottery together based on how many people want to live together.  There are 3, 4, 5, and 6 person suites/apartments available.

An individual can only register as part of one group at a time*.  If an individual registers as part of more than one group, all of the other members of both groups will be removed from the lottery.

Lottery Registration:

Just as in general lottery, priority will be given to seniors, then juniors, etc.  We will add together the class year of the group and the lowest totals will have the best opportunity.  Example:  In the 3-Person Lottery three 2013's are given priority over two 2013 and a 2014.

3 & 4 person groups due March 27 by 9am

5 & 6 person groups due March 28 by 9am

Lottery by numbers e-mailed that respective evening.  You will receive an e-mail on the day registration closes with your lottery status.

Registration deadlines are staggered to allow groups that are not selected to add people and go for a bigger suite.  Only after you receive notification that your lottery number does not qualify you for a suite, may you re-register for a larger suite.

Those who "win" the lottery will select their apartment/suite on Tuesday, April 1, 2014.
