Housing Application Step by Step Guides
Step 2: Your Questions Answered
Where can I find my time ticket for Roommate Selection?
You can find your time ticket for Roommate Selection in the Housing Portal.
How are the time tickets assigned for Roommate Selection and Room Selection?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.
When does Roommate Selection close?The Roommate Selection process closes on Friday, April 10, 2020, at 5:00 PM.
How do I create a Roommate Group?
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.
What is the responsibility of the group leader?The group leader is responsible for placing themselves and their roommate in their unit and bed when Room Selection opens.
How many people can I have in my Roommate Group?You can have a maximum of two people in a group.
Do I have to select a roommate?No, this step is optional.
What if I don’t know who I want to room with?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.
Can First-Year students live with Upper Class students?No, students must live with other students of their same classification and gender.
Can students in a Living-Leaning Community (LLC) live with students not living in an LLC?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.
How can I communicate with potential roommates?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.
If I have more than two people that I want to live with (3-4 people), how does the process work?
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.
