Room Selection for current and future residents is where you complete a housing application and have the opportunity to select the exact hall/apartment, room, and bed space that meets your preference. If you are a current student, you have the opportunity to keep your current bed space or find a new room altogether.
Below is information on the room selection process for both the residence halls and Tech Village apartments. If you are interested in Tech Village, make sure to go to the Tech Village Room Selection section.
In the spring, current residents in the residence halls can participate in the residence hall room selection process. During this process, residents will prepare for the upcoming fall semester by:
- Filling out a housing application for fall
- Selecting a roommate (if applicable)
- Renewing your current bed space (if you choose)
- Choosing a new room during your designated time slot
Below is information about the schedule for the room selection process for the Residence Halls as well as instructions on how to complete everything. If you have any questions, please reach out to us at email@example.com.
Starting a Housing Application ›
When applications go live via the housing application portal, make sure to login and begin to fill out your application. Its important that you start this as soon as possible. There is a contract section of this application called the Online Housing Agreement. That section must be finished in order to be eligible to make your room selection.
Choosing a Roommate ›
In the housing portal, you can search for other students who have completed an application to see if they want to be roommates. You can send an invite, message, and view the other student's housing profile from their application. Once an invite is accepted, a roommate group is formed. This allows you to assign that student as your roommate during the room selection period (or visa versa).
NOTE: If you are planning on renewing your current bed space, you do not need to create a roommate group. You will only need to create a roommate group if you are choosing a new room and want to find a new roommate to live with you in that room. (Exceptions to this would be engineers grouped with a non-engineer trying to pull the non-engineer into Maddux/McCord Hall since it is strictly for engineers.)
Renewing Your Current Room ›
If you're happy where you currently live in the halls, then you have the option to renew your bed space for the following academic year during contract renewal. Simply confirm the renewal of your current bed space and you will have locked in your current room. If you commit to renewing your bed space, you're done with contract renewal at this point.
NOTE: You cannot renew your bed space if: you are in an ADA room and you do not have a previous housing accommodation; or you live in a specialty hall (such as Maddux/McCord for engineers, or Murphy for Honors) and you are not an engineering student or Honors student.
Choosing a Different Room ›
If you're not happy where you're currently live in the halls, then you can select a new room during the room selection period. If you have completed the Online Agreement section of your housing application, you will be issued a time slot via email that will allow you to go in at that designated time and choose a room. The time slot will be good from that time until the end of room selection.
Once the room selection period ends, the next available opportunity to select a room will be during the "Open Request" period.
Open Requests ›
The open request period is for any students that missed an opportunity to select a room. You can go in at this point and fill out an application (if you haven't already) and choose from the remaining list of rooms that are available.
