Online Housing Lottery
Our ONLINE housing lottery process is just around the corner! Housing Lottery is the process in which current residents in McMahon Hall will select their room placement for the 2012-2013 academic year. Current residents who do not participate in the housing lottery process are NOT guaranteed housing for the 2012-2013 academic year.
Please be advised that ALL housing lottery communication will be sent ONLY to your Fordham e-mail account. Information will be sent to you as new updates become available. It is very important that you continue to check your Fordham e-mail account on a daily basis. If you have a personal e-mail address that you prefer, make sure you forward your Fordham mail to this account. Please see below for important updates.
I. Students were sent an email with information about their Expected Graduation Date. If this year is incorrect, you must contact your Academic Dean and have them email your corrected Expected Graduation Date to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, February 24th at 6 pm! An incorrect Expected Graduation Date in our system will affect you in the room selection process.
