Lottery Numbers

All housing lottery numbers are randomly generated through a computer program. These numbers are organized by class year with rising seniors being given the first set of numbers, rising juniors being given the second set, and rising sophomores being given the third set. 
  • Please understand that the computer assigns you a lottery number based on the class year that has been determined by the Office of the Registrar.
  • These numbers will be distributed to all students on Friday, April 7th at 4:30pm and can be found through your My Hamilton account. We WILL NOT give out your lottery number prior to this date or time, nor will we give you your number over the phone or email.
  • In the event that you have accumulated 6 or more judicial points, the following will occur: +50 will be added to your lottery number and you will not be eligible to be pulled into someone else’s space. 
  • In the event that you are found responsible for Lottery Manipulation or an Illegal Room Change: additional points may be added to your lottery number (at the discretion of Residential Life) and you will not be eligible to be pulled. Depending on the situation you may also face judicial charges.
