Special Interest Community Application

Prior to applying to a Special Interest Community, please take into account the cost associated with each housing option. 

All assignments are done by the houses internally. Assignments are typically done based on what is best for the relationships in the house taking into account seniority within the community. Applying to a Special Interest Community does not guarantee access to a single. You are applying for a communal experience and not for the accommodations.
