Room Assignments & Roommates

Room Assignments
Room assignments are completed by the Housing Office based on the preference information that you complete within your My College Roomie roommate profile.  Please complete your My College Roomie profile even if you anticipate requesting a roommate.  

All students, both new and returning, will have the opportunity to select their own housing assignments if they completed the housing process as outlined below.
