Point Values
In your student portfolio, you will see your point value on a table that will look just like the one you will receive in the Room Selection emails.  Point values are assigned to a student based upon the number of semesters they have lived on campus. Point values are as follows:

Note: If a student studied abroad, the semester(s) abroad do count towards GRS points. If you have a question about your GRS points, please contact the office of Residential Life at no later than March 5, 2014.

Point Adjustments

A slight increase in your point value will be granted for the following:

Any increase in points will be reflected in your e-portfolio.  Point adjustments cannot be saved for future use. If you are participating in any part of GRS for fall 2013 housing, your point adjustment will be applied this year.  The only exception are students not able to use the adjustment due to studying abroad in the fall.
