Crossroads Program Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
When is Room Draw?
Room Draw for the Crossroads Program will take place on April 7.
Do I need to complete the application?
Yes! Any student interested in being a member of the Crossroads Program and living in International Center must complete the Crossroads Program application. We are looking for students who are seeking to contribute to an intercultural living community and review each application to create a diverse community. Applications are due by March 9, 2016.
What if I am already a member of Crossroads?
You must still complete the Crossroads Program application. We review applications each spring for the upcoming academic year. Currently living in International Center does not guarantee your space for the following year.
If I am accepted, do I need to be present at Room Draw to choose a room?
No, you can have your roommate bring your signed Room Draw slip to selection.
Do I need to have a roommate?
Yes, all rooms are selected in pairs and all beds will be filled. If you are attempting to live in a single (there are very few in IC) you must still have a partner for your room draw selection.
I was accepted but my friend was not. Can they live with me?
No. Individuals accepted without a roommate will have the opportunity to connect with others accepted in order to find a roommate. All individuals wishing to be considered must complete an application.
What if I want to live in a single?
There are very few singles available in International Center. If you are able to select one of the few singles, you will still need a partner who has also been accepted to the Crossroads program. You and your partner will select single rooms in a suite-style setting.
Will I still be eligible for Room Draw after I select a room in International Center?
No, once you accept your space and select a room in International Center you will then be removed from any future Housing Selection processes for the 2016-217 academic year.
Is there an additional cost to living in International Center?
Yes, there is an approximate surcharge of $920 per person for the academic year (based on the 2015-2016 academic year) for living in International Center. Please see Upperclass Student Housing Rates for more information.
When do I have to make a final decision where I am living?
To be considered for the Crossroads Program, you must complete and submit your application by March 9, 2016. If accepted, you must decide prior to going through Crossroads Room Draw on April 7, 2016.
