    Have you tried logging into eLiving. Here is the link.

    http://www.eliving.psu.edu/

    After logging in, click on 'Assignment Information', select 'campus/contract period', then click on 'UP - Fall 2006'. Your room assignment should show up. If it doesn't, I would give the assignment office a call.

    I gave them a call and they told me to wait a few days or write an email to the assignment office. I wrote an email saturday and today i got a reply that "you'll get your assignemtn at least 10 days before arrival" :(

    does that mean i'm getting supplemental housing? :(

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

    I just checked e-living: "housing assignment is not yet available". :(

    It sounds like you might be in supplemental. (Did you send your deposit in near the May 1 deadline?) Keep your fingers crossed and hope for the best. Good Luck!

    i sent in my deposit late....around 21st April, but that's because PSU wasn't my first choice and i was still waiting to hear from another college.

    Does anyone know anything about supplemental housing? Is it really bad?

    Supplemental housing is generally 6 students in a converted dorm lounge. I guess if If the six kids are cool, it might be fun. I know they try to get you into permanent rooms by the spring semester (kids drop out and space opens up). I would keep calling until they give you some info ( I know of one kid who is in supp housing and knows his assingnment and roomates). good luck and try make the best of it if you get supp.

    MightyNick-
    You should be fine and not in Supplemental Housing. I heard that the people in supplemental housing are the students who sent in their housing forms after April 25th so you should be fine. But yeah definately call them, you should have your stuff by now.

    And I am one of those students who is in supplemental housing btw. I submitted my housing stuff around april 28th so I have 6 room mates, but i'll just make the best of it. Could be fun.

    Also I'm in Brumbaugh in East Halls.

    Yeah I called them and they said they're waiting for some cancellations so that they can put me in regular housing.

    6 roomates is a lot of people!! I wonder how much personal space we'll get...and studying in your room with all those people isn't an ideal situation.

    Centrally located, (yes if you are in engineering West is better but it is still closer to most of campus than East)
    Close to the HUB.
    Lots of dining facilities available - the Pollock commons or McElwain is even closer - right across the street.
    The Pollock library is right behind Mifflin so if it is too noisy in your dorm you can go there to study rather than Pattee.
    Close to town (McClanahans, Student Bookstore, Family Clothesline, many others)
