How is housing priority established?

New Students housing priority for all is based on the admissions application date to the University, and not the housing application date.

Continuing Students/Bridge: Priority is based on the number of roommates, those with four roommates, then two roommates, and then singles.

When are Housing applications due?

For Fall semester, housing applications are usually due:

How many roommates can a first year student have?

The majority of housing accommodations available to first-year students are designated as two-person rooms. In certain suite-style communities, such as Holmes Hall, McCabe Hall and the Honors Residential College, a suite may accommodate up to four residents. In this setup, each room houses two roommates and is connected to another room which accommodates an additional two residents.

On the night of room selection, if there are room spaces with four bed spaces available then you will be able to assign your entire roommate group to the suite. However, if no residential communities with four-person options are available then the roommate group will need to decide how to split into pairs or singles, etc.

This split DOES NOT need to be made in the Clemson Home Portal since all roommate group members will receive an email with a time slot. We highly recommend each group creates a backup plan for this scenario since a majority of first-year communities accommodate two residents per room.

Example: The following is a sample of time slots assigned to a group of four:
Student A: May 23 6 p.m. ET
Student B: May 24 6:30 p.m. ET
Student C: May 24 7 p.m. ET
Student D: May 24 8 p.m. ET

The group decides that Student A will sign in to the Clemson Home Portal to attempt to assign the group of four to a suite in Holmes Hall, because they have the earliest timeslot.
Upon logging in, Student A alerts the group that there are no longer any suites available with four open spaces. Student A may then assign themselves to a double space with students B, C, or D.
Prior to logging in Students A and C agreed they wished to be a roommate pair and students B and D agreed they would also be a roommate pair and in the case that a suite was not available, Student A will assign themselves and student C to a two-person room in Cope Hall while Students B and D will wait until the following evening for Student B to assign B and D to another room in Cope Hall.

Thus, the roommate group is located within the same building, even though they could not be suite-mates.

Prior to the start of room selection, it is important to discuss your group's location preferences and what to do in the event your first choice is not available for selection.

How do I choose my living space?

During your time slot, you may enter the housing portal and select a room.

If the room is identified as a 2/2, meaning there are two of the two beds available, you may choose to put yourself in that space.

The room status will change to a 1/2, meaning there is one of the two beds available.

A magnifying glass will appear and a potential roommate may view the lifestyle questionnaire and verbiage that you wrote about yourself.

If they feel they are a match they may select the available bed. On the other side, if you find a room that is a 1/2 you will have the opportunity to view the lifestyle questionnaire and verbiage that was written by the student occupying the space. If you feel you are a match, you may place yourself in that space.
