IT IS EXCITING!
IT IS ALL ONLINE AND . . .
IT IS SO EASY!

NEW RESIDENTS – STARTING SPRING 2020 YOU GET TO CHOOSE YOUR ROOM AND YOUR ROOMMATE!

For Fall, 2020 – any new incoming student whose completed housing reservation (and reservation fee) is received by late July* will be eligible to have the option of CHOOSING THE ROOM/ROOMMATE OF THEIR CHOICE online!
*Reservation requests received after 5:00 pm, July 22 will be placed by housing staff.

We will send out an email to all applicants in Spring of 2020 (tentatively set for Mid-May) with a link to the Housing Selection process. You will then access the system and . . .

  • If you have a roommate choice – confirm/match with your choice(s). Remember roommates need to be confirmed.  Un-matched roommates are not confirmed, will NOT be pulled into the system and will not get a room assigned to them. You can search for and confirm/match with your roommate choice(s) via our Roommate Matching software – My College Roomie. You can expect a welcome email from My College Roomie (MCR) in Mid March with information about how to access their system. From there, just log on and match!  Matched roommates in MCR will roll overnight into our housing system setting you up to pull your matched roommates into your room selection or to be pulled into a room selection by your matched roommate in May when Housing Selection will begin. 
  • We will send out a reminder email in May, but you can start checking your Housing Overview page in Mid/Late May. 5:00 pm, May 14th is our current target to release selection start times and dates. Once start date/times are posted – PLAN AHEAD – so that you (or the person in your group with the earliest start date/time) can access the system asap after your start time rolls around. The sooner you login and choose, the less competition you will have for the space you want!
At your start date/time:  LOG back ONTO your HOUSING OVERVIEW, Access the system – Look for “Room Selection” on the left side of the page.
  • Choose from the spaces available. ONLY confirmed roommates will be pulled into your selection!
