Let’s Talk Roommates

It’s one of the first things on your mind as you start preparing to make the move to college: but who will my roommate be? It’s simple, roommates are matched based on the roommate preference information you provide in your housing application. Your roommate information is available in the Residence Life Portal once room assignments are made.

How to Request a Roommate

If you have a friend or specific person you want to live with, don’t worry, you may be paired with one another—though it’s not guaranteed. You will need to create and accept a roommate group in the housing portal and the requested roommate must accept the roommate group. If a member of the roommate group does not accept, you won’t be paired. Individuals cannot create or accept a roommate group until they have completed their housing application for the term.

Creating Roommate Rules

We know what you’re thinking: what if I don’t get along with my roommate? Learning to navigate shared spaces and new personalities is part of the fun and growing experience of college. You’ll have a roommate agreement to utilize with your resident advisor if things get sticky. If you need, you may request a room or roommate change during the Room Change Period, which is 2 weeks after the semester begins and lasts for two weeks. Rooms can't be changed after the Room Change Period ends.
