Housing Application Step by Step Guides


Step 2: Your Questions Answered

  • You can find your time ticket for Roommate Selection in the Housing Portal.

  • Time tickets are assigned by when you signed your License Agreement. You can view your time ticket in the Housing Portal 1-2 business days after you have signed your agreement.
  • The Roommate Selection process closes on Friday, April 10, 2020, at 5:00 PM.
  • To create a roommate group, one person in the group must begin this step by selecting to “create the group,” giving the group a name and setting a password. The person that creates the roommate group is the group leader. Once the group is created, the group leader can invite potential roommates to join the group. If you have been invited to a Roommate Group, you can accept or decline the invitation within 7 days of receiving it.

  • The group leader is responsible for placing themselves and their roommate in their unit and bed when Room Selection opens.
  • You can have a maximum of two people in a group.
  • No, this step is optional.
  • If you do not know who you want to room with, you can see a pool of “Roommate Matches” based on your answers to the questions you answered to create your profile.
  • No, students must live with other students of their same classification and gender.
  • No, students participating in an LLC can only see other students who are in that same LLC and are of the same classification and gender.
  • You can communicate with potential roommates via the messaging feature on the Housing Portal or by reaching out to them directly if they chose to share their cell phone number, email address or social media handles. If you do not see contact information listed in the portal, we cannot share it with you due to privacy, and you will need to message them through the Housing Portal.
  • Roommate groups are a maximum of two people. If you want to live with more than two people, you will need to communicate early and often with one another. Once Room Selection opens, you will need to tell each other what units you are picking and which beds. We recommend that you enter the Housing Portal at the same time. Please note, we cannot guarantee that there will be units available for groups of 3-4 people as Room Selection is based upon availability when the time ticket opens for the group leader.
