Proxy Information


If you are eligible for the Mid-year housing selection but are unable to be present, you will need to designate a proxy, who will act on your behalf to handle all aspects of the housing selection process. Proxy designations after the deadline of November 29, 2019 will not be recognized.

Please stop by the Office of Residential Life to complete a Housing Proxy Form or designate a housing proxy via email by completing Housing Proxy Form and sending it to reslife@hamilton.edu. Please complete this form with as much detail as possible to make the process of selecting a room easier for your proxy.  The Office of Residential Life will serve as your proxy if you would prefer, however you MUST specify that you would like us to do so by submitting a proxy form.

Please indicate your housing proxy as well as any specific information about the type of room you would like on your housing proxy form. Please realize that the spaces available on campus mid-year are limited. For this reason it is in your best interest to include more than the minimum of three preferences, as your top few choices may not be available.  If you do not designate a housing proxy and do not attend the housing selection, you will not receive housing for the spring semester.

Please be aware that your proxy form is not a binding agreement, however, the room selected by your proxy IS binding and cannot be changed. It is important that you let your proxy know your exact preferences. 


If you are acting as a housing proxy for a student currently away from campus or who is unable to attend the mid-year housing selection process please be sure to arrive on time and prepared for the housing selection as follows:

  • You must bring your Hamilton ID in order to act as a proxy.
  • You should bring with you the list of preferences that were provided to you by the student for whom you are a proxy.
  • You should check with the person for whom you are a proxy to find out if they are interested in any of the specialty housing options, such as substance free, prior to the housing selection.
