How many credits do I (or does my group) need for a…..?
Because credit totals, groupings, and unit popularity change each year, there is no accurate way to answer this question. Below are the total credit numbers for the last group awarded a unit (single, suite, townhouse, apartment) in each major housing category last year. Please use this information as a guideline when setting up your groups, but note that this does not guarantee anything! We wish we could tell you how the credit totals will play out this year, but until we see the actual groups and credit totals we have no way of calculating this number. Our best advice is that if you are interested and eligible for a certain kind of housing—it does not hurt to apply for it!

|Unit/Kind of Housing||Total Credits for last unit awarded|
|Female Single (residence hall)||74|
|Male Single (residence hall)||70|
|6-person suite in Lewis Quad||185|
