2017-2018 Academic Year Roommate Selection

2017-2018 Academic Year Roommate Selection

Important Dates

The priority deadline for the 2017-2018 Academic Year Contract is Sunday, February 19 at 11:59PM.

If requesting a roommate, then roommates must be fully matched by March 3 at 11:59PM.

What should you do next?

*If you already have a roommate in mind, log into MyHousing Self Service and send them an invite! This is the only way to be officially paired with someone!

*If your preferred roommate is not visible, then that individual either qualifies for a different lottery (Ex. first-time college students eligible for the Residence Halls only), or has not submitted a 2017-2018 Academic Year Contract.

*The priority deadline for contract submission is February 19th, so if you want to room with an individual who hasn’t yet contracted, please encourage them to do so soon. Students who have not contracted by February 19th will not be eligible to participate in online room selection.

Not sure with whom you want to room?

*Search for roommates in MyHousing Self Service using advanced criteria, (Ex. guest preferences, academic school, etc.). Make sure your “Personal information” section is filled out in MyHousing Self Service in order to assist others in pairing with you as well.

*If you don’t select a roommate(s), then you will still have an opportunity to participate in online room selection. Any remaining spaces in the room you choose during online room selection will be assigned by Residential Life based on contract preferences.

An example of the process can be seen below:

  • Log in to MyHousing Self-Service
  • Select “Rooms & Roommates”
  • Select “Roommates/Suitemates”
  • Choose “Fall 2017” from the drop-down menu, then click “Submit”
  • Choose “Simple Roommate Search” if you have a specific roommate in mind OR choose “Advanced Roommate Search” if you’d like to search for roommates with similar preferences.
  • Once the request is submitted, you will see a message similar to the one below.

This message will indicate if you are fully matched – the system will inform you if any roommate requests are not yet mutual.

Requests will need to be completely matched by March 3rd in order for roommate groups to participate together in online room selection.

More information will follow in the coming weeks regarding the online room selection process.
