Room Draw Process

  1. Submit your housing application


    Starting January 31

    Priority room draw numbers are given to those who've completed their housing application by 10 a.m. on March 2.


    Apply online through MyBethel (click the Housing & Meals link in the Tools & Resources menu), under "Applications and Forms."

  2. Choose your roommates


    Immediately after submitting your application.

    Your roommate group must be matched by:  

                March 3 at 8 a.m. for North Village Apartment Draw

                March 7 at 8 a.m. for Suite-Style Housing Draw (AV, Lissner, Heritage)


    Check out our Roommate Selection page for instructions. Full groups get priority. Your group must also be able to completely fill your room. If you don't have a full group, you'll be able to use Open Groups Connection to connect with other groups looking for roommates.
  3. Pick your room during room draw


    We'll send you an email with room draw instructions and your group's room draw time.
