Lottery Points

The Lottery System

Lottery Points for Selection 2013 will be available once Housing Selection for Fall 2013 begins.

If you're a member of the honors program, be sure to add 1000 points to your total.  If you believe your lottery point total is incorrect, please notify DoaneHousing@doane.edu by Friday, April 1st.   

Lottery points are determined according to a student's class standing based upon current total credits earned. A computer randomly assigns them.

The points reflect class standing after Interterm:

  • Seniors will receive a number between 4000 - 4999
  • Juniors will receive a number between 3000 - 3999
  • Sophomores will receive a number between 2000 - 2999
  • First-year students will receive a number between 1000 - 1999

A student should have at least sophomore class standing to live in the quads. (Students who have a five-digit number may only use the five digit number in traditional selection. For the Quad lottery, only the last four digits of such a number can be used.) Floor plans of each hall will be posted in the Residence Life Office (RLO).

Any student late in pre-registering will receive a number, but will be penalized 500 points. You must bring proof of pre-registration from the Business Office to the RLO.
