A. If you are away the day or the time (your time slot will be dependent on where you come) that you are supposed to pick let Damiano (firstname.lastname@example.org) know. In the same email, tell him who your proxy is.
B. Once you let Damiano know, you and your proxy are on his list. If you have forgotten to do this, Damiano will accept you telling him that someone is your proxy on the day – but note that in the time it takes you to let him know and to organise your proxy you are likely to miss your slot, and therefore go to the bottom of the ballot.
C. Make sure your proxy knows the following:
I. How much you can afford to pay?
II. Who you would accept being pulled up to live with?
III. Who you would pull where possible?
IV. Are your priorities living with friends, having a shower, having a larger room etc.
V. Would you rather live in college or in a corridor (if you are a first year balloting for second year accommodation)?
Happy Housing Ballot, and may the odds be ever in your favour.
