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.
If you have further questions, please contact us.
I’m a new student, can I request a roommate change after the deadline?
We understand how important your freshman year is and how it will shape the next few years. Living with someone we don't know can be frightening and difficult. College is a time of learning and growing. This is a time to learn to live and work with many people who may be different from us in a multitude of ways.
University Housing has live in staff in each building and on each floor that is there to help you adjust and feel comfortable. During the first few days on campus, your RA will come by and speak with all occupants to help them address issues and to draw up a roommate agreement which will help mandate the rules for your living space.
