Sites with VCOM and Non-VCOM Housing

VCOM housing is offered to fourth-year students on a first-come, first-serve basis, and only after all third-year students have been placed. Some VCOM core sites offer student housing while on rotation. To inquire about VCOM housing availability, students should complete the housing request survey.
