Can't Attend Room Selection?
I can't attend the room selection event - what do I do?
Anyone who cannot attend their room selection event in person (currently studying abroad, has class, etc.) should fill out a proxy form. This form allows you to designate another NU student to choose your room for you. By signing this form, you're indicating that you trust the other student to select a room for you. They are responsible for letting you know after the event which room you selected, and for choosing a room closest to what you want.
It's a big responsibility to be a proxy (designee), so it's important to choose someone you trust. If you aren't sure who to pick, you can always ask any CA to be a proxy for you and they're happy to help.
With a signed proxy form in hand, your proxy will be able to attend room selection and go through the entire event in your place. They can check in as you, choose your actual room, and check out as you as well. They cannot, however, sign your housing contract, but if you registered on myNU, your contract is all set.
