Pick Your Roommate

 

Incoming students can log into the Housing website starting on January 16, 2013, at 10:00 a.m. and chat with other students that are also looking for a roommate.

Print out the instructions on how to find a roommate and then login and talk to other students that want to live on campus too!

 

Things to keep in mind:

  • Look for a roommate that has the same login group as you. When you view your roommate matches, look at each student's priority date. Students that filled out their housing application and paid their housing deposit between October 15 and December 31, 2012, are in Group 1. Students that applied for housing and paid their housing deposit after January 1, 2013, are in Group 2.
  • On the screen where you select your preferences in a roommate, start out only answering 3 of the questions before hitting "Search". If you get a large number of results when you search, you can answer more questions to narrow down the number of results you receive. If you answer all of the questions, you will receive very few roommate matches.
  • If you send a message to someone and they reply back to you, you will see the message on the left side of the screen under the "My Messages" link on the Housing website.
