Keep Upperclassmen On Campus
!!!!!!!!!!!!!HOUSING UPDATE: Auburn Housing will let upperclassmen live in Aubie, Harper, Hollifield, and South Donahue next year! Thank you to all who helped make this happen!!!!!! WAR EAGLE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We are calling for On-campus Housing options for upperclassmen in at least one dorm in the following areas: the Hill, the Quad, and the Village (
non -Greek Hall). This will allow upperclassmen to live on-campus in locations suitable to their own financial situations for the school year 2016-2017.
Auburn Housing is not allowing non-freshmen to live on campus next year. The only exceptions are people in South Donahue and sorority dorms. This action plan marginalizes upper-classmen of a lower socioeconomic status who cannot afford to live in South Donahue ($10,900 per year) or are not members of a sorority. The residents were just recently informed of this decision (if informed at all) and are struggling to find off-campus housing options as many leases are already taken. Furthermore, students (junior standing), who are National Merit Scholars are unable to get their housing compensation because their scholarship covers the Quad dorm price level, not the South Donahue dorm price level. See more information about the housing change at http://www.auburn.edu/administration/housing/renew...
Auburn Housing waited until February 1st to inform students about these changes. The Housing application for the limited spots in South Donahue is only open February 15th-16th. This is too late of a notice for Auburn students to make houisng decisions.
IMPORTANT: you (and your parents!) need to talk to the President and Provost to stop the new housing plan!
