On campus housing selection query

Hey - I’m out on co-op this fall and won’t be around Boston. Planning to wrap things up on campus come spring '25, figured living on-campus would be less of a headache than hunting for a place for just a semester. So, what’s the deal with snagging a dorm for just the spring? Got my housing app in before the cut-off and saw the deposit notification hit my inbox, but I’m kinda in the dark here. Do they hook you up with a housing number, or is it all just a roll of the dice where you end up?:skull:

Did the same thing this year, I am lucky to get in the first selection.
