This is a great opportunity for you to set yourself up for continued success in the coming year.

THE TIMELINE to RENEW YOUR HOUSING FOR 2022-2023

APRIL

MONDAY, APRIL 18:  Roommate Matching Begins in My College Roomie (MCR)

  • Look for an invitation via your WOU email from My College Roomie to join, set up a profile and then search, find and match with your perfect roommate.
  • If you know your roommate of choice, just match with them on MCR. All matches in MCR roll over into the Housing Renewal Selection process so that when a room/apartment is selected all students who are matched roll into the space.
  • If you want a roommate for next year, you must use MCR to find and match with that roommate.
  • If you want a double room, or suite, you must find and match with a roommate to be able to select a double room or a suite.
  • Is your Roommate Group fully Matched? Check your Housing Overview page  (access your Overview page from the WOU Portal – look for University Housing Overview) to see if all of your chosen roommates have matched with you on MCR BEFORE matching closes on Sunday May 8. To check on your roommate matches, from your Housing Overview page click on “Room Selection” from the menu on the left. Then click on “Select Roommates” and set the term to “Fall 2022”. Below it will display your roommate group status and let you know if it is fully matched. If your group is not fully matched go back to MCR to get matched by 5 pm, May 8th.  
  • MCR will CLOSE at 5 pm, Sunday, May 8, 2022. This is your LAST CHANCE to choose a roommate before they roll into the Housing Renewal Selection process which begins at 10 am, Monday, May 9, 2022.
  • NEED SOME HELP? Try My College Roomie Support – there are videos there for all things My College Roomie!
MAY - Your Housing Overview is accessed from the WOU Portal. Look for "University Housing Overview"

Remember to verify that your MCR roommate matches have rolled over to your Housing Overview and they are ready to go for Room Selection. To do so, from your Housing Overview page click on “Room Selection” from the menu on the left. Then click on “Select Roommates” and set the term to “Fall 2022”. Below it will display your roommate group status and let you know if it is fully matched. If your group is not fully matched go back to MCR to get matched by 5 pm, May 8th.  

THURSDAY, MAY 5:  Last chance for any CURRENT WOU STUDENT who is not a resident to submit their Housing Reservation form to be eligible (as an Add-On)  to participate in the Housing Renewal process.
Remember to follow up your Housing Reservation with an email to University Housing with a request to be included in the Housing Renewal process – make sure to include your chosen roommates names! 

  • During approximately the first week of Renewal, this Renewal Additions group will only be eligible to be pulled into a space by a current resident.
  • Once all CURRENT residents have had the chance to select a space, then all  Renewal  Additions will have the opportunity to select a space outright before new students select in the summer.

FRIDAY, MAY 6:  Housing Renewal start dates and times are posted by 5 pm to student Overview pages. 

  • Access your Overview page via the WOU Portal. Look for University Housing Overview. Once on your Overview page, scroll down to “Room Selection” your start date/time will be posted here.
  • Remember – Plan Ahead! Access the system ASAP after your time-slot starts – or for matched roommates, the roommate with the earliest selection time should be the one to log in, select the space and pull the others in. There are students starting right behind you. Early access = more to choose from.

SUNDAY, MAY 8:  Roommate Matching in MCR CLOSES at 5 pm. You must be matched with your preferred roommate(s) by this time or you won’t be able to pull each other into a room. 

MONDAY, MAY 9:  Housing Renewal Room Selection Begins at 10 am!

  • Room Selection for Renewers will run from 10 am to 5 pm Monday through Friday for this first week – or until every current resident has had the opportunity to select a space.
  • Once all current residents have had their chance to choose, the process will be open and available 24-7 for all eligible students to choose until this selection process ends at 11:59  pm, on Monday, May 23rd.

MONDAY, MAY 23:  Housing Renewal Room Selection ENDS at 11:59 pm.
