How to select a room

First-year Students

PLEASE NOTE: Freshman students will not participate in the roommate grouping process and will only select an individual space for themselves during self-selection.

Steps:

1.See the Room Selection date/time on the homepage of your housing self-service portal. Go to Select A Room/Suite.  You can also get to this same section by going to Room Selection-Select a Room/Suite.

2. Under the roommate group, incoming freshmen will only see themselves listed. 

-Upperclass students who have successfully created a roommate group will see all those in their group listed as well as themselves. 

3. Go to the Select from Room List section and expand the area.

4.  You will see filters for building, room type, and Living Learning Communities.  We recommend you only use one filter type to ensure you find a room that meets your search criteria.

5. When the filters are selected, click Search Available Rooms.

6.  You will be displayed with all available rooms in your search criteria that you or your roommate group are eligible to select. If a building or room type is not available, you will need to select another room.

7. Review the different room types and semester rates listed next to each room/suite.  Each person is responsible to pay the semester room rate listed for their room/suite assignment. 

-The number of spots listed for the room are the spaces remaining.  The number of spaces listed in the suite/apartment are the total number of spaces in the suite/apartment remaining.

8. After selecting a room, you will then see the bed assignment for you and any members of your roommate group.  You can reassign people within your roommate group to different beds.  Please ensure you've discussed with your roommate group what room/bed each person wants to live.

9. To confirm and select this room, select Submit Room Selection.

10. You will be taken to a confirmation page letting you know your selection is confirmed.  You will also receive a confirmation email to your Wayne State email account.

11. At anytime, you can return to the housing self-service portal to review your assignment and any roommates under the Assignments section.
