Selecting a Roommate

All students, both returning and incoming, are eligible to select their roommate. Roommate selection is completed in partnership with My College Roomie software. Students are expected to complete a personal profile and roommate questionnaire. Upon completion of the profile and questionnaire, students will be provided compatible roommate matches. 

New Student Roommate Selection

After completion of the online housing process, students will receive log-in information and credentials for their My College Roomie account, via KU e-mail.  This information will be in your KU e-mail inbox within 48 hours of completing your housing application. Students should follow the instructions outlined in their e-mail to access their account. The instructions for roommate matching are as follows:

  1. Log-In to My College Roomie.
  2. Change Password (if first time completing log-in).
  3. Complete Personal Profile. Be as detailed as possible when creating the profile.
  4. Complete Questionnaire. Complete both the questions and your comfort zones. 
  5. Review Matches. Take the time to communicate and get to know potential roommates.
  6. Friend Request potential matches. All friend requests must be reciprocated. Incoming students may only create a roommate pairing. 
  7. After conversations with peers, submit roommate requests to your requested roommate. All friend requests must be reciprocated. 
  8. Wait for your details of housing assignment to come via e-mail. All housing assignments will be completed by July 8, 2018. 

All new student roommate requests for the 2018-2019 academic year must be submited by Friday, June 22, 2018. If a student opts to not select a roommate, they will be randomly assigned based on answers to preference questions on their housing application.
