housing situation like? Is it difficult for freshmen and sophomores to get housing?
We generally house our anticipated freshman class, and assignments are made on a first come, first serve basis. Priority is given to freshmen students then whatever availability is left is then given to transfer students.
Charles Gibbs, dean of housing, adds that housing at Howard is a privilege, not mandatory. Students who are transitioning and matriculating to sophomore status participate in a point driven housing selection process called RSVP. It is based on points and 40% of those total points are based on your GPA.
