Got my room selection window....right in the middle of a movie I'm trying to see. The website seems to work on my phone but I just wanted to double check to see if anyone has done it via mobile? Thanks

View and select windows for HUH come out May 4th. What came out Friday was lottery results for HAHLS (the dorms).

Just got my HUH selection window, for 5/12. Here's hoping there are good 1BRs left!

I'm at 5/20

No idea if that's good or bad - probably not great :(

I was a 5/20, I got my top choice. That said, those windows are a bloodbath - I had completed the entire process in about 7 seconds. Just know precisely what you want and familiarize yourself with the process and button layout during the view period.

Being a morning person pays off again! Thanks for the heads up Nonconsecutive, I'll make sure to have the button layout familiarized.

I hadn't considered that. Well, here's hoping my block is filled with Hawaiians to lessen the competition!

I obviously can't comment on this year specifically, but in my limited experience it is definitely worth staying up and being on there refreshing the page the instant the slot opens. There were entire clusters of rooms gone within 1 minute during my window.

In their "application approved" email

The windows run from May 7 through early June and will include apartments with lease start dates of early to mid June and later.

Got a 5/12 HUH as well, but didn't get into the dorms lottery.

What are typically the most sought after HUH options? They all seem quite expensive...

I just want a Gropius jail cell I can't afford the HUH housing ;_;

Any info on how competitive dorm selection is with a later time slot?

What I heard from some of the students that did HUH housing is that the multi-bedroom units went fast because those are the cheapest per person. These were followed by the studios, and the last to go were typically the one bedroom units.

Chill y'all. 1Ls who want Gropius not getting Gropius is not a thing. I wasn't even accepted for like three more weeks and had no trouble getting a dorm room. They have slots reserved for you.

Got a 5/14 window for HUH. Hoping to get a 2 or 3 bedroom in 29 Garden Street, Terry Terrace, or Peabody if anyone is interested! Feel free to message me.

Also my girlfriend and I are gonna watch Legally Blonde tonight since it's on Netflix haha, thanks for the tip HorseThief!

We aren't good at chilling. I blame H for being so slow this cycle. :x
