Assignment Process

2014-2015 Priority Deadline to submit housing contract – March 21, 2014


  • Students must be enrolled at Mercer University as a traditional undergraduate student with a minimum of 3 credit hours per semester.

  • Traditional 1st, 2nd and 3rd year students are required to live on campus and should not enter into an off-campus housing agreement unless you have written release from the Office of Residence Life. The only exceptions to the residency requirement are students:

  • who are over 21 years of age
  • who are married
  • who are parents and have their child living with them
  • who live at home with a parent or guardian within a 40 mile radius of the Macon campus
  • who are veterans

Housing Assignment Process

Students must complete an online housing contract located at MyMercer by the priority deadline. The housing contract is for an entire academic year for a space in University housing, not for a specific building or room.

  • First year students (New Freshmen) are assigned based on receipt of the enrollment deposit.

  • Students are able to request a specific roommate; all roommate preferences must be mutual.
  • Assignments for 1st year students will be made after all summer orientation sessions.
  • Second year and above students are assigned based on a Lottery Process:

  • Each student is assigned a random computer generated lottery number.
  • Students are able to pull in roommates when their number comes up.
  • All roommate preferences must be mutual.
  • Assignments are made beginning with the lowest lottery number.
  • Separate lottery process is held for (Credit hours are not considered):
  • 2nd Year Students
  • 3rd, 4th and 5th Year Students

Assignment Changes

  • Students will not be allowed to make room changes until two weeks after move-in. Notifications with times and instructions for this process will be sent out at the beginning of the semester.

  • A student may NOT move into any room other than the one assigned to him/her without the approval from Residence Life. Unauthorized room changes are subject to an improper room change fee.

  • After the identified room change period at the beginning of each semester, residents without roommates may go through the Consolidation Process. They will have the following options:

  • choose a roommate
  • declare a private room and agree to an additional fee
  • be prepared to have someone assigned to their vacant space at any time
  • To cancel a housing contract, a cancellation form must be completed and turned in to the Office of Residence Life. Please see the Terms and Conditions of the contract for eligibility and applicable fees.

  • Students who do not check in with the Office of Residence Life by the first day of classes of each term may be reassigned.

  • For further clarification of information above, please see the Housing Handbook.
