Room Selection

For Current Residential Students Only

The priority points score you have earned this academic year establishes the start time for you to participate in the room selection process. If you are in a fully matched roommate group, the first person in your group that logs into eHousing at their designated time can choose for the entire group. At that time, if no rooms are available that can accomodate the size of your group, you will have to disband the group by removing your roommate matches. When you remove all your roommate requests, you will be able to choose on your own from the remaining rooms.

When you have been assigned to a room withing eHousing, you will receive a coninrmation email for your records.

At that time, you may click "Room Selection" & choose "Select a Room/Suite" to choose your room.

At this time, if you have an unmatched roommate group, you will see this message. You will not be able to choose a room until all roommates are matched or until you remove all roommate requests and proceed as an individual to choose on your own.

If you have a fully matched roommate group or are proceeding as an individual, you will see the message below. When you choose "Find Available Rooms", it will find all the rooms you are eligible to choose.

After you choose find, if there are rooms that are available, you will see a list of rooms that you can choose. If you are in a group, it will only show rooms/suites that can accomodate your entire group. Groups must click "Select Suite" to choose multiple rooms for you and your roommates. Individuals must click "Select Room" (see below).

After you choose find, if no rooms are available that can accomodate the size of your group, you will see the message below. In order to choose a room, you will have to disband the group by removing your roommate matches. When you remove all your roommate requests, you will be able to choose on your own from the remaining rooms. Let your former roommates know if you are separating the group since they must choose at their designated pick time on their own.

Note: If you are choosing as an indivual, not as a member of a group, and there are no available rooms, you will be placed on a waiting list. All students on the waiting list will be placed over the summer.

On the room booking screen, you will place yourself and your matched roommates in their specific rooms within the suite. Once you agree and submit, your room choices are final. You will not have the ability to make any changes after the selection is made.

If you forget to assign yourself or any of your roommates to the suite you have selected, you will receive the message below. You must go back and assign everyone in your group in order to complete the room selection process.
