I'm still trying to figure out this whole huh thing. Do they also put u in a lottery and assign u random selection windows like HLS dorms? And for roommates with huh, do u try to secure ur apartment first and then invite roomate or the other way around? It would be great if someone who's been there walk us through the process and share some tips!! Many thanks!!
HUH has it's own lottery which works just like the dorms, except that it's open for the entire university, so you'll probably get a terrible number. Most of the good rooms (29 Garden, TT) go very, very quickly. You may be able to get botanic, idk.
As I've mentioned before, if you want to guarantee yourself a room, you may need to jump on an early lease. These are not available through the lottery, but are the leases that start in June/July. If you can get furniture in the room, you may be able to sublet for those months. Otherwise, you take a hit, but at least you have an apartment.
Re: Roommates, you should get the apartment first. It's convenient if you have roommates in mind, but the rooms are hard enough to get that you can't really plan on it. However, once you do have an apartment, it will be very easy to get a roommate.
