When your pick time comes, it shows you what’s left in specific buildings. There’s no visual map, just room numbers. If you want to go random, you don’t have to do anything, just select a room, then another person can pick the same room.
the next time we get a “you’re so mean” message, that person is getting blocked and the message deleted.
We’ve been over this enough times in the past couple years.
We are down to help people, just don’t waste our time.
Let’s try flipping this around:
people who ask questions of this blog are poor representations of UConn students. They’re mean and can’t be bothered to do a simple google search on their own. They can’t tell the difference between information that it’s possible to give them or not.
We’re really not that mean. We just want people to stop wasting our time. You’re the one sending anonymous hate. If you don’t like it, don’t follow the blog.
Just because we’re offering our help doesn’t mean we’re offering to do everything for other people. Show some initiative— that’s what’s expected of college students.
Incoming freshmen don’t actively participate in housing selection. You’re placed upon acceptance.
I know people who have joined a random suite, with mixed results. I don’t think it’s “shitty”… also I’m not sure how they handle LC room assignments but they may assign rooms? Not really sure. That would be something to ask the LC contact.
Certain floors and buildings are reserved for LC’s, but anyone could get in there.
Typically, it goes so fast that only seniors with really good pick times get in, though.

There’s no way to tell what will fill up at what specific time. Try for a south single, if it’s available.
I would say there’s a 95% chance of south filling up within the first few hours of the first day.
