Occupancy

At the time of application or re-application and during each annual review, a formal group must submit a housing roster showing every bed filled for all three terms of the following academic year. The roster should include a mix of class years in order to sustain this positive aspect of residential living at Lawrence and foster the recruitment of knowledgeable leaders for future years.  Ideally residents should include sophomores, juniors, and seniors; first year students are not allowed to live in FGH.  The group may be single sex or mixed sex.  Only group members may reside in the house, and no group may be assigned more than one house.  If the number of residents in the formal group house falls below the facility’s capacity during the course of the academic year, the members of the group are responsible for filling the vacancies from among their membership.  If during the course of the year group membership drops and a FGH is not able to fill every bed for all three terms of the academic year, the group must maintain a required 90% occupancy level on average for all three terms or risk re-assignment.  Every attempt will be made to allow a formal group to remain in the same facility during its three-year compact.  During the three-year period, a group would be required to move to a smaller facility only if (a) the group requests to be re-assigned to a smaller facility or (b) a shortage of available beds on campus makes such a move necessary in order to house all students.  A group would not be required to move to a smaller facility during the course of an academic year.  A group that has not maintained the minimum requirement of 90% occupancy on average for all three terms of the years during its compact will not be eligible to re-apply for the same facility but may re-apply for a smaller facility.
