Housing Selection for New Students

It is time for a new chapter! University Housing is looking forward with you to the coming year and the success that you will find living on campus at WOU.  The Housing Selection process is your opportunity to choose not only the space that you want for next year, but if you want a roommate, to find and match with your perfect roommate!

The process is entirely online and begins with an invitation that you will receive via your WOU email from My College Roomie to complete a profile and then find and match with that perfect roommate.

You have reserved a space, now stay on track and follow the timeline that we have set up for your Housing Selection process – where you will choose WHERE that space is and WHO, if anyone you will share it with!

Questions?  Reach out to the Housing Team – we are here to help!



MONDAY, JUNE 13:  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 Selection process so that when a space 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/or match with that roommate.
  • If you want a double room, you must find and match with a roommate to be able to select a double room.
  • MCR will CLOSE at 5 pm, Sunday, July 24, 2022. This is your LAST CHANCE to choose a roommate before they roll into the Housing Selection process which begins at 10 am, Monday, July 25.

THURSDAY, JULY 21:  Housing Reservations are Due – by 5 pm

  • Any student who wants to be included in the Housing Selection process must submit a Housing Reservation (and pay the reservation fee) by 5 pm. to be eligible to participate in the Selection process.

FRIDAY, JULY 22:  Housing Selection 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.
  • Students can and should check their roommates on their Housing Overview and in MCR to make sure that they are confirmed. Those not confirmed should use My College Roomie to match. NOTE: July 24th deadline to match roommates prior to the beginning of the Selection process. Residents needing to match after this deadline can email housing with roommate requests. All roommates must send an email (mutual requests) in this scenario.
    NOTE:  Email requests to be matched, must be emailed before either student selects a room.  You cannot be linked together once one of you has selected a room.
