    I am officially enrolling as well! I also decided to reside on campus at least during the first year there.

    @xxduplinsxx and other transfers

    We could share facebook links via PMs, yes?
  • xxduplinsxxxxduplinsxx Registered User Posts: 23 New Member
    Yeah that sounds perfect.

    I paid my housing deposit 2 days ago. Does anyone know when they send the link to choose housing? Also, where have you guys chosen to live?
  • jayfromlajayfromla Registered User Posts: 99 Junior Member
    I'm paying my deposit tomorrow. Hope to see you all this fall at orientation.

    Still trying to figure out housing.

    I got an email with the housing link about two weeks ago. Here it is if you want to try it:

    https://rms.housing.northwestern.edu

    I put Willard and Bobb 1-2 on my list - I think transfers are the bottom priority for housing, though, so I'm trying not to get my hopes up.
  • jayfromlajayfromla Registered User Posts: 99 Junior Member
    Anyone else get their housing contract today? I'm trying to decipher my assignment. It says "CCI" on the contract, but the move-in site lists my assignment as "Allison."

    Also, as it says I have a double, where would I look to find my roommate assignment?
