I was also assigned to this building! The housing portal has the floorplan of the apartment online, and I believe that building has 24 apartments on 6 floors.

I was also assigned to this building. I called UAH today to get more information and was told that there is an elevator in the building as well as a laundry facility.

I still don't have a housing assignment. Are there other people out there without assignments or has something gone wrong here?

Just got mine as well. In the email it states the billing rate for the summer semester. I'm not planning to be there for the summer so I am hoping they don't expect me to pay that... did anyone else get this?

Yeah, I think it's just how the system works. I'm pretty sure they pro-rate based on your move-in date, which they figure out when you check in.

Congrats! I'm hoping to join you, but still haven't heard anything. Starting to sweat it a bit.

How long did most people wait between the time their status changed and the time they got their assignment? My housing portal has said the e-mail was sent for about 4 hours now...

UAH retracted their housing offer this morning because the apartment they assigned me was "not actually available." I'm trying to be patient with them but this reeks of incompetence

They offered me an apartment with a move-in date in May. Columbia is incidentally my undergrad and to give you a sense of the administrative incompetence at Columbia, it was a relief that that was the only thing they screwed up.

Anyone able to set up their CLS email on their phone?

Also, any ideas on readings/anything we should be doing over the summer? Last day of work is Friday, going to have some freetime and unsure if I need to be doing anything besides relaxing.

Does anyone have pictures of what a studio in Lenfest looks like? The only photos I've seen come from someone's random Flickr album.
