Housing 2009 Live-blog: Part I – The Part When Students Are Happy

Written by

Welcome to Bwog’s 2009 Housing Live-blog! We’ll be updating this space with the latest numbers as they fall much too quickly for your liking.



 Board as of 12:20

12:25 PM: Lunchtime rush in the lounge accompanied by Rihanna’s “Disturbia”, gaggles of excitable upperclassmen huddled togetherlike middle schoolers. 5-person suites in EC are dunzo and there seems to be some Hogan-shifting action. There are 12 Watt 1 BR doubles left. Hogan 4-person suites are gone. Head of Housing Joyce Jackson altered us about the “ton” of Watt studio doubles: 51 left.

11:54 AM: Farewell, sweet EC 4-person suites. On a happier note, have you ever seen the inside of the big storage closet in John Jay Lounge? It’s stuffed full of York Peppermint Patties. What you do with this information is your own business.

11:48 AM: The white board isn’t being “updated” so much as “utterly and viciously ignored,” but all the Watt doubles are gone.

11:22 AM: The very gracious housing people are looking into listing Woodbridge by line. There’s an orange balloon stuck to the lounge ceiling. It’s eerily quiet.

Old updates after the jump.

11:06 AM: EC has been dented, ever so slightly. 

10:51 AM: Little white board action to speak of, but the Watt doubles are down to four. Also, eleven 4-room suites and nine 5-room suites left in Hogan. There are a lot of bagels being eaten in this room.

10:31 AM: After a brief interval of Queen, U2 comes back with “Desire.” Try to temper yours. Hogan suites going fast.

10:14 AM: Board update! Quiet speculation about Harmony Hall can be heard running through the lounge, while the lure of free Coke before breakfast claims victim after victim.

10:07 AM: Currently playing: U2 – “Beautiful Day.”

9:41 AM: The first groups have aleady gone through, most with fairly large grins on their faces. Housing has politely stocked the fridge with a bunch of sugary drinks, and a RED(tm) iPod shuffle is blaring a solid mix. Housing has also placed a friendly notice reminding students to “be the DJ.”

  1. answer  

    woodbridge hall.

  2. ruggles??  

    there's really only 7 Ruggles 8-person suites left???

  3. well  

    "Hogan suites going fast." updated picture, please?

  4. man  

    Can you timestamp the images?

  5. but what about  

    Watt- no studio doubles or 1 br's left, but there are 6 2 br's?

  6. confused  

    Yeah, anybody know what's going on with ruggles? did they change the layout?

  7. dude  

    there are 61 Studio doubles left

  8. Yeah  

    if all you're gonna say is, "Hogan suites going fast," then why even have a liveblog? I can see the cutoff numbers from last year to deduce that.

  9. you know  

    if i dont get a soda during my room selection i'm going to be hella mad

  10. oye  

    can they update woodbridge with the lines like they did last year, instead of just how many rooms are left?

  11. are

    those numbers right for the ruggles 8 person suites?

  12. ?????  

    I still don't get why the Watt 1 bedrooms are not up. There's no way they went before the two bedrooms.

  13. a ton of  

    the ruggles 8-person sweets are special interest housing and werent even in the lottery to start

  14. ruggles  

    so then whats the deal with the rest of them??---i didnt think any seniors went in as groups of 8--bwog??

  15. wait  

    Do they not have 1 bedroom apartments in Watt anymore (as in they don't exist, period, not that they've already run out)? It's all studio doubles now?

  16. watts  

    they do but its general selection

  17. seriously  

    bwog figure out what's going on regarding ruggles

  18. confused  

    Why would Watt 1 bedroom apartments be in general selection? Two people live in it and it was in suite selection last year.

  19. hogan  

    what's happening to the hogan 4-person suites?

  20. concerned citizen  


  21. you sure?  

    ?12 Hogan 1 BR doubles left and 51 studio doubles left"...?

    you must be talking about a different building bwog...

  22. senior  

    why hasnt the 6 person townhouse number changed at all?

  23. simpler...  

    why don't they just have a live webcam of the board?

  24. they could at

    least update the picture

  25. sighhhh

    2 of 3 Woodbridge 2BRs are gone...

    Man, they are NICE

  26. really??  

    who would want to live with the RA?? might as well just keep those suites out of the lottery like they used to

  27. ruggles update

    Spec says Ruggles is fine

    must have been a mistake

  28. Wait...  

    EC Exclusions suites...what's going on with those?
