CSB 2016-2017 Room Selection

Room Selection is the process through which returning students select housing for the next academic year.  There are many parts to room selection including Pre-Selection, Senior Majority Selection, Suite Selection and regular Room Selection. Students can also apply for Intentional Living Community and special conditions. Students are issued selection numbers that are assigned to individuals randomly within their cohort group (the group of women that began college in the same year).
