SQUATTING

If you would like to squat your apartment: 

  • In order to be eligible to squat your apartment, you must have a FULL group AND at least half of your 2017-2018 current apartment capacity needs to be made up of current residents of your apartment.
    • For example: if you are in an apartment with the capacity to have 4 students, then you must have 2 students who are remaining in that apartment.  Capacity is not how many students currently live in the apartment; capacity is how many the apartment can house when full.
  • Complete the Apartment Squatter’s Rights Form at housing.anderson.edu
  • You must enter 7-digit ID #s for each member of your group on the online application
  • If you meet the above criteria, you will be placed in your assigned apartment and will NOT need to enter room draw.                                 
  • Apartment Squatter forms are due by Friday, March 23, 2018, by 11:59 p.m.

If you would like to squat your residence hall room:

  • Due to the repositioning of first-year rooms for next year, we are unable to offer Residence Hall room squatting for the 2018-2019 school year.

All application will be made available on Monday, March 1 at 8 a.m. The applications can be found at housing.anderson.edu
