Roommate Information


Roommate Selection -  Students who have applied for housing may search for a roommate.  The following conditions must exist before a roommate request can be honored: (1) both students must have a completed housing application on file for the same term, (2) both students must have provided evidence of Bacterial Meningitis Vaccination, (3) both students must request and confirm each other online and (4) during room selection a double occupancy room must exist.

Confirming Roommates:  When two students request each other as roommates and have applied at separate times, the department will give both students a common time slot. Either student can go into the system at this time to select a room. Applicants should be aware that if their requested roommate does not confirm their request online or cancels their application, they will be assigned a web self assign timeslot based upon their individual application date.

Roommate requests are not guaranteed and it is the student's responsibility to ensure that when selecting a room, if they have a confirmed roommate request, that the roommate is also placed in the room. Requesting a roommate after you have chosen a room will not automatically pull the person into that room.
