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┬á 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.
