Share the excitement of Housing Day as first-year students are assigned to their House and upper-level students welcome them home!
About the Houses
The life of the House extends beyond the intellectual. The Houses host robust cultural and social opportunities and are are home to their own film, music, art, and drama resources that range from small-scale jam sessions to full opera productions. Houses encourage physical wellness by fielding a variety of competitive intramural sports teams. Social functions, such as Faculty Dean open houses, formal dances, and coffee hours, provide students an opportunity to relax and interact with members of their House community.
Blocking with Friends, AKA the Sophomore Lottery
The week prior to Housing Day, first-year students register for the sophomore housing lottery and list roommates for their sophomore year.
Housing Day Eve
On the Wednesday prior to Housing Day, upper-level students rally in the Houses and prepare to welcome incoming first-years. The personality (and sense of humor) of each House is apparent through Housing Day t-shirts and videos.
In the Yard, students gather in Annenberg for a celebration hosted by the First-Year Social Committee.
