Your process is based on your selection

Lottery times for the general lotteries will be in 2 minute increments; once you select your room you must guarantee your room is bought out by you at that time so you are not assigned a roommate. Super-single Lottery the process of selecting both sides of a room during room selection. Select a room that has two open beds. You will receive a confirmation email. If you have a super-single or want a super-single and you select a room during any lottery other than the super-single lottery, you must immediately contact the Residence Life Central Office.

Lock in your roommate

Lock in your roommate before you select your room. Make any additions and changes to your roommate requests before your room selection time. Your roommate request must be accepted before to your lottery time.

You may select a roommate who does not currently live on campus or is a new student. However, the potential roommate must complete and return a housing application and have the housing deposit paid at least three (3) business days prior to your selection date in order to be “pulled in” during the process.

Don't overload your roommate request

Only request as many roommates as you have occupancy. If you are in a matched group two (2) people for double-shared, three (3) or four (4) people for Cutler Apartments and Wickersham Hall and they are eligible to select at an earlier selection date and time, that student will be selecting for you. HOWEVER, it is still your responsibility to confirm that you were pulled into a room as expected. To confirm your housing assignment through Self Service go to the main menu page and you will see your room assignment for Fall 2019.
