Students have the ability to request roommate preferences until May 15 through the housing application.
When selecting someone to be your roommate, that individual will receive an email where they can accept your invitation. Roommate preferences must be mutual in order to receive an assignment together. While we do everything we can to honor roommate preferences, we can only guarantee a match if both students apply prior to February 1. This includes a completed application and paying both security deposit and initial pre-payment.
It is highly likely, but not guaranteed, for roommates who prefer each other to get one of their top three residence hall preferences (if selecting three different building options) if they both apply prior to February 1. If one or both roommates apply after February 1, it becomes much more challenging to accommodate either or both roommate and/or building preference.
Remember the following:
- Your roommate preference supersedes your building preferences
- Student assigned to live in a Living Learning Community (LLC) will be matched by the LLC staff based on application preferences
