Some students want to live with a friend and some want to be assigned a roommate. There is no right or wrong way to go about having a roommate. If you want to live with a specific person, there is a process to follow. Here is everything you need to know to make that request:
- You and your preferred roommate(s) should submit your housing applications at approximately the same time, and make sure the preferences are identical, including any Residential Based Learning Community requests.
- All requests must be mutual so you and your requested roommate(s) must all request each other.
- The roommate request form will be open online in the Housing Service Center from April 1 - July 15 for any student who has completed a housing application.
- Your contracts MUST be identical, with matching facility, room type, and RBLC, if applicable.
Completing the steps above will maximize your chances of being placed with your mutually requested roommate. There are times where availability prevents matching every roommate request but our team makes every effort to accommodate roommate requests that follow the above steps.
Roommate information is sent in early August for academic year contracts, and early January for new students just moving in for spring semester.
