Living on campus for J-Term next year?

Q: Which Residence Halls will be open during J-Term?

A: J-Term housing will only be available in Goodwin-Kirk (GK) hall. All other residence halls will be closed during the January Term.

Q: Who can live in GK during J-Term?

A: Students who are registered for on-campus or partial on-campus J-Term classes who have signed up for housing in GK will be able to live in GK during J-Term.

Q: If I am not registered for an on-campus or partial on-campus J-Term class can I live in GK or access my GK room during J-Term?

A: No.

Q: When is early J-Term housing sign up?

A: Sunday, April 1, 2012 at 7:10 p.m. in Upper Olmsted for GK single rooms and Monday, April 2, 2012 from 7:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. in Parents Hall for all other GK rooms.

Q: Who is given preference during early J-Term housing sign up?

A: Students who have not met the two-years out of high school residency requirement or students who are required to live on-campus as a scholarship requirement who are also registered for an on- campus or partial on-campus J-Term course, will be allowed to sign up for J-Term housing. This will be done in lottery number order, during early J-Term housing selection for GK. Priority will be given to those who are selecting roommates who are also registered for on-campus or partial on-campus J-Term courses.

On Monday, April 2, 2012:

7:00-7:15 p.m.: Four of the roommates are registered for on-campus or partial on-cam- pus J- Term courses. 7:15- 7:30 p.m.: Three of the roommates are registered for on-campus or partial on-cam- pus J- Term courses.

7:30– 7:45 p.m.: Two of the roommates are registered for on-campus or partial on-campus J-Term courses. 7:45– 8:45 p.m.: One of the roommates is registered for on-campus or partial on-campus J-Term courses.

How to register at that time:

You must have the right number of roommates for the room you want, i.e. one (1) for a double, two (2) for a triple, and three (3) for a four person room. If one or more cannot be with you at sign up, you must have their IDs and signed contracts with you, and you will be able to sign-up for a room. Sign up occurs during the sign-up period of the roommate with the lowest lottery number.

Students who are not required to live on-campus and have registered for an on-campus or partial on-campus J-Term course may submit a housing application to live in GK. Place- ment will be based on available room space after the housing sign up has been completed for the students who are required to live on campus.

Q: What is the definition of residency requirement?

A: All full-time students must live in a Drake residence hall for the first two years out of high school. Exceptions include individuals who are married or live within a 45-mile radius of Drake University and have requested and received written approval from the Office of Residence Life to live off campus with immediate family (i.e. parent/guardian).

Q: Is there an additional room and board fee for J-Term?

A: Yes. All students who have not met the residency requirement and are registered for an on-campus or partial on-campus J-Term course will be assessed a non-refundable J-Term room and board fee regardless of which hall they choose to live in. Room and board charg- es for J-Term total $914. This non-refundable fee will be due at the beginning of the fall term. Room and board charges for J-Term courses that are partially on/partially off campus will be computed based on the number of weeks spent on campus. Each partial week will be billed as one full week of room and board at $305 per week.

Students needing J-Term housing who have not met the residency requirement are strong- ly encouraged to participate in the early J-Term housing sign up process to ensure housing placement in GK.

Students taking an on-campus or partial on-campus J-Term course within the two year live-on-campus residency requirement, who self-select a hall other than GK to reside in, will not be provided J-Term housing but will still be assessed the non-refundable room and board fee as a result of the residency requirement and their own decision not to register for GK during the early housing sign up time provided.

Q: If I am studying abroad during spring 2012 and will still be within two years of high school graduation and required to live on campus upon my return in fall 2012 and want to register for J-Term and get J-Term housing, what should I do?

A: You may contact your advisor or your Dean’s Office before March 9, 2012 to register for a J-Term course. If registering for an on-campus or partial on-campus course you will also need to email Theresa.Graziano@drake.edu by March 16, 2012 informing the Office of Residence Life of your J-Term housing request.

Q: Is there an additional room and board fee for J-Term?

A: Housing for students residing in GK and for those who are enrolled in on-campus or partial on-campus J-Term courses will open, Sunday, Jan. 6, 2013 at 10 a.m. GK J-Term housing will end Saturday, Jan. 26, 2013 at noon.
