Assignments for incoming first-year students and transfers are made in contract receipt order, so the earlier your contract arrives, the earlier you are assigned in the process.
The only students that are guaranteed housing in Peddrew-Yates Hall are those who have applied and been accepted to the Ujima Living-Learning Community.
