How many rooms will be available on my arrival date?
Unfortunately, providing information to number of available rooms at a certain location would not accelerate the application process in any manner, especially for the winter semester. On the one hand, such information would only be a momentary snapshot of the current situation, and on the other hand it would not consider the current applicant situation.
If, for example, information is released in July that residence home X will have 20 available rooms on October 1st, it could be that 30 people have already applied for these exact rooms. In such a case, a new applicant could suppose that they would have no chance of receiving a room in this house. If residence hall X is a WOMIKO-house however, and of the 30 applicants there are only 19 WOMIKO-applicants, a new applicant could suppose that they have a chance of receiving one of the available rooms, provided they too were a WOMIKO-applicant. Such arrangements can only be seen during the initial residency placement, which first takes place five weeks before the scheduled moving-in date for the months of September, October, and November.
