If you are currently abroad/in Washington:
You should go through housing selection as normal. All information will be sent to your Roanoke College email account.
If you are currently taking a semester off and are planning to come back in the summer or fall:
Contact the Office of Residence Life & Housing immediately at email@example.com so that you can be included in housing selection.
If you are planning to take a semester off in Fall 2014:
Do NOT go through housing selection (Unless your plans are very tentative. If you aren't sure, go through housing selection just in case.)
