Roommate matching

Please be aware that we assign rooms based on the latest application submission date of the group.

For students that applied between November 15th, 2022 and February 1st, 2023, you can select your roommate or roommate group from January 15th, 2023 to February 1st, 2023. For students that applied for housing between February 2nd, 2023 and June 1st, 2023, you can select your roommate or roommate group from May 15th, 2023 to June 1st, 2023. For the second wave of roommate selections (May 15th-June 1st), these requests are subject to availability and don’t guarantee that you will be placed together. To select your roommate(s) during these selection periods please go to the housing portal.

If you and your friend(s) want to room together, you can make a Roommate Group. Only one person needs to create the group and give it a name. The creator can invite their friend(s) to join by putting in the name and email of the person/people they want to invite. An email will then be sent out to the invitee. Alternatively, individuals can join a group by putting in the group name or using Roommate Group Search to find the group if you know the name.

You can find a roommate by Student ID number or by the roommate’s screen name. If you applied by February 1, 2023, you will be able to view suitemates when your group participates in the room self-selection process at the time assigned to you at a later date.

If you do not have a specific roommate in mind you can search for a roommate either by profile or by filling out what answers to the roommate matching questions you are looking for in a roommate. You can also go to Suggested Roommates to look at what our system suggests are good matches to you based on your previous roommate matching question answers on the application.

If you do not want to find a roommate a roommate will be assigned to you at a later date.

Please view the timeline for more information about the roommate matching and assignments timeline.

Room change requests

  • Students who have received a housing assignment may submit a room change between July 17 through 11:59 p.m. on July 28
  • The room change request form will be on your housing portal

As a reminder, room assignments are based on the preferences you completed on the housing application. Considerable effort is made to honor specific requests and to meet individual needs when making room and roommate assignments. However, heavy demands for University housing sometimes makes it impossible to satisfy all individual requests.
