Room Selection: 2017-2018 School Year
Room Selection is an online process which gives current residents the opportunity to renew their housing agreement for the following academic year. Missing a deadline means you forfeit your housing for the next year. Please be sure to adhere to the deadlines and to the Room Selection Timeline.

A Room Deposit of $200 must be paid online before participating in Room Selection between March 6th and April 6th. In addition, all students participating in Room Selection must have a clear balance with the University, including parking fees.
Note: Failure to pay the Room Deposit on time will result in forfeiture of Room Selection privileges. Students who do not sign up for housing during Room Selection will not receive housing for the next academic year.
*RAs, AIM, EOP, graduate students, and full scholarship recipients are exempt from paying the Room Deposit.
Every resident will be given a timeslot that marks at what time during the Room Selection process they can log on to the housing portal to fill out their application. Dates start March 27th, which is the beginning of the Room Selection process. However, the timeslot is what matters when choosing where to live.
Room Selection is a lottery with priority based on:
- Seniority (class year):
Within each phase of the Room Selection process, priority is given to class year from highest to lowest class standing.
- Size of Group:
Room Selection priority is given to groups that can fill an entire room or suite.
- Proximity to Space Selected:
Priority is given to those interested in returning to their current building, followed by those returning to their Quad / Area and lastly to those interested in moving to a new Quad / Area.
Use the Roommate Profile tools to pair up with other residents who you know you’d like to live with, or to search other profiles to find potential roommate, suitemate and/or apartmentmates with whom you'd like to live.
Note: All roommate or suitemate requests must be agreed upon by every resident selected, using the Roommate/Suitemate Acceptance screen. Only current residents are eligible to participate in Room Selection.
*If you have any problems selecting roommates/suitemates or accepting an initiation please contact your RHD.
Please pay particular attention to all dates and deadlines associated with the Room Selection process. Students who fail to successfully complete Room Selection by 9:00pm on April 6, 2017 will not receive housing for the 2017-2018 academic year.
