Room Wars
During room wars, the hall members rank their choice of rooms (not all rooms need to be ranked), leaving theirs last on the list - no one will ever receive a room worse than their current room. Squatters list their own room, and turn in the forms - and are then gauranteed the same room for the following year. Priority is then evaluated based on a) the amount of time spent living on the hall and b) the amount of terms spent at MIT (in increments of semesters - these numbers a following year. Priority is then evaluated based on a) the amount of time spent living on the hall and b) the amount of terms spent at MIT (in increments of semesters - these numbers are added together to make a base-priority), and c) consideration for their current room size; people who have lived in aunt of terms spent at MIT (in increments of semesters - these numbers are added together to make a base-priority), and c) consideration for their current room size; people who have lived in a smaller room (and for a longer time) will have higher priority than hallmembers of the same year/time spent 4e who are in larger rooms. For hallmembers who have the same priority (ie freshman living in doubles) priority will then be established randomly within the group by the hall chairs, and then used for assignments of rooms.
Below is a chart of 4e room sizes (A is the largest, E is ridiculously small). Not all parts of the hall have all the numbers 401 to 414, we will denote these room sizes as X. Note that Bemis 413 and Goodale 406 are both official doubles. Goodale 405 is the GRT room.
