I plan to apply to be an RA for 2018-2019 and the hiring process occurs during spring 2018 term. Should I pay the deposit, complete the application, and select a room in the October room selection process?
We are very excited you are interested in the awesome opportunity to be an RA to enhance your leadership skills, assist fellow students, network on campus, and build your resume!
But YES, you should complete all steps of the room selection process if you want to live on campus for 2018-2019. The RA hiring process is very competitive and since you are not 100% sure if you have the job yet or not, make sure you lock in your space in October for next year. If you are hired, you will be refunded the $75 housing deposit and you will be assigned a new room.
Haymarket has two contract options, correct?
Yes! You can decide what works best for you. There is cost saving if you select a 12-month yearly contract versus selecting a 9-month academic year contract and then decide to add on the summer contract later.

o Haymarket prices vary based on unit: $33-$40 per night

I have a 12-month yearly contract at Haymarket but all my roommates have 9 month-academic term contracts. Will I stay in the same unit for the entire length of my 12-month yearly contract? Will I have roommate for the summer 2018?
Yes! Once you select your room, this is your assignment for the entire 12-month yearly contract from June 1, 2018-May 25, 2019. If you have roommates that signed 9-month academic term contracts, you may be assigned different roommates for summer 2018 only.

I will be study abroad spring 2019 or graduating in December 2018, thus I do not need housing for spring 2019. What are my options?
