Deadline: Roommate Groups Finalized!

Complete the roommate matching process in the Housing Portal in order to be able to receive your time slot for your group’s room selection (based on the type of housing application you submitted).

Note that during room selection, groups that do not meet the specific room’s required group size will not be able to select spaces they cannot fully fill (so a group of 3 will not be able to select a 4-person unit). There is time built in to the room selection process to allow for re-matching if there are no longer units available that match your grouping by the time of your first-scheduled time slot.

 

April 16-May 6

  • Room selection by room/housing type
  • Receive your group time slot

You will receive your time slot at least one day before the housing type you are trying to select. Anyone in your roommate group can make the housing selection at that time - make sure one of your group is available and has your list of choices. Every 3 minutes, another group in the room selection will have access to the list of available rooms. The selection portal will be accessible 5pm-10pm and your time slot will be within those hours on the day of your selection.

 

April 16, 2020

5pm-10pm

Room/Suite Room selection for Singles (if available).

At your allotted time, you will have 3 minutes to select a roomuntil the next time slot opens.

If you do not have a mutually matched 3-person roommate group, you will not be able to select a room even if you are assigned a time slot. Groups that do not meet the required group size will not be able to select spaces they cannot fully fill.
