Residence Life Room Selection for 2011-12

Information sent to RISD students on December 22, 2010

Dear RISD Student,

 Happy Holidays!  We are writing to you with important information regarding on-campus housing selection for next academic year:

 Room selection for the 2011-12 academic year will take place during the middle of March 2011.

 Housing deposits are required for anyone to participate in room selection. Housing Deposits will be accepted at Student Accounts beginning January 3, 2011. The deadline for us to receive the Housing Deposit is Monday, February 21, 2011. Please detach the bottom portion of this letter and include it with your deposit payment.

Housing Deposits are non-refundable once a room assignment is chosen.  The deposit is then credited toward your fall room charge. If the deadline or amount of the deposit poses a financial hardship, please contact Residence Life at  to inquire about alternate arrangements.

Amount:  $500 for this year’s first-year students, who are going into their sophomore year.

               $1000 for all other class years.

 All sophomores (2nd year undergrad students) are required to live in on-campus housing.

 Residence Life will provide information sessions and housing tours, and make detailed instructions available to all students in January and February.  If you would like to see the detailed instructions, they will be posted at

 Rates for next year’s housing choices are not yet available but will be established prior to housing selection and posted at  We suggest that you discuss a budget with your parents prior to housing selection.

 Should you have any questions about the housing selection process, please do not hesitate to contact the Residence Life Office at or by calling 401-454-6650.

 Enjoy the holidays and have a safe and wonderful break!
