The housing process takes place in the spring. Below you’ll find a detailed list of the ins and outs, so you’ll be an expert when it’s time to pick a room.


The housing process functions as a lottery system in which every student receives a room draw number based on seniority. Colby uses a program called Symplicity to help organize housing and manage the lottery. When it comes time to choose your room, everything will be completed online through Symplicity.  As we get closer to the process, informational sessions will be held to provide an overview of the system and answer any lingering questions you might have. Below you’ll find links to housing applications, instructions, and floor plans.
