Parents and families will be able to view the same information on the Returning Student Housing Sign-up Information Page. It can be viewed at: https://www.drake.edu/residencelife/returningstudenthousingsignup/

PLEASE NOTE: the current information on the page will reflect the process from last year but it will give you an insight into what to expect for the coming year. When the information is emailed to the students drake.edu email, the page will be updated to reflect the 2023-2024 process.

Residents living in the first-year halls will not be able to remain in their first-year hall.  Students will choose from either Jewett or Goodwin Kirk residence halls for 2023-2024 school year.

All students must sign-up with a roommate if wanting a double room – one roommate, if wanting a triple room - two roommates, and if wanting a quad room – three roommates. The number of residents must match the total occupancy of the room in order to sign up. Sign-up occurs during the sign-up period of the roommate with the earliest housing registration/lottery time slot

Student athletes, students in the CREW program, or other special population groups will sign up as part of the general housing sign-up process. Students in these groups will choose the students that they wish to sign up with as roommates. The Office of Residence Life does not complete any pairings.  Those who have not chosen a roommate(s) or elect to go with a “random roommate” assignment will submit their application as roommateless as noted in the process information. These students will be assigned accordingly by the placement system.

Students wishing to live in a single room next year (2023-2024) will need to participate in single room sign-up which occurs prior to the regular room sign-up process. Single room sign-up is not based on a lottery order.

PLEASE NOTE: individuals currently in a single room assignment are not guaranteed single room placement for the next year. Medical documentation for a single room will need to be filed SDS (Student Disability Services) in the Office of Access and Success each academic year.
