How to request roommates

After completing your housing application and paying your application fee, the next step is to update your Roommate Profile.

  1. To do so, from the housing portal homepage, click on My Info on the upper menu bar.
  2. A drop down menu will appear, select Roommate Profile.
  3. On the Roommate Profile page, set your privacy settings, contact info and update your roommate bio.
    1. If you would like others to be able to add you as a roommate, we recommend that you do not make your profile private.
    2. While you complete your profile and bio, it is important to be honest and share things that may be relevant in helping you find a roommate that will be a good fit.
  4. When you are satisfied with your profile, click the button Update Roommate Profile on the bottom of the screen. This will save your profile and complete this step.
  5. Remember you can always come back to this page to update your profile asnecessary.
  6. Next, to request a roommate, click on Roommate Selection on the upper menu. Select Roommate/Suitemates to begin the roommate selection process.
  7. Select the Fall 2018 semester and click submit.
  8. This will bring you to a page where you can search for your roommate by last name, first name or email.
    1. Enter one or all of these fields and click " Begin New Search" at the bottom of the page.  
    2. We searched for "Warrior" and there was only one match so the system automatically selected them as a requested roommate.
    3. If there is more than one person with the same name, you will be presented with a list of people to choose from.  Select the person you want to request as a roommate and submit.
  9. After you've requested a roommate, you will be able to see the status of the request and also follow up with that person.
    1. You can remove the request, poke them to encourage them to accept, view their roommate profile or even email them.
  10. Remember, you are not matched until the requested roommate accepts your request! You can request up to 3 other people to be a part of your roommate group.
