Understanding Our Assignment Process

First-Year and New Transfer Students

First-year and new transfer students will participate in a room selection process after each New Student Orientation session prior to the Fall Semester. Students will receive an email to access the housing portal to reserve their assignment after successfully attending New Student Orientation (NSO).

  • Applications and room reservation times are prioritized by the submission date of the application and the date the student attends NSO.
  • At the end of the second day of each NSO session, students will receive an email from Housing and Residence Life with the room reservation date, time and roommate group pin number. All students must have a completed housing application with payment to participate in the room selection process and select a roommate. 
  • Select one roommate from any NSO session as long as students have shared the Roommate Group Pin number received during the application process.
    • A Roommate Group Pin is 5-6 digit pin number that we have created for all students that can be used during the Room Selection Process to select a roommate or a suitemate. The Roommate Group Pin is used to verify that a student has given permission to be pulled in as a roommate by another student.
    • After completing the room selection process, any request to change your assignment will not be accepted until:
      • September 15th– October 15th during the second room change process; or
      • February 1st-February 15th during the third room change process.
View more details about the room change process.
  • If a student's assignment is not booked or completed by the reservation time, the student will manually assign you after the last NSO session scheduled for the summer. Assignments will be based on availability. Students will be able to access their assignment information at My Housing Portal.

Special Population Students

  • Special population students: athletes, honor students, residential community, and veteran and disability support students.  *Athletes are assigned from rosters submitted by the coaching staff.
  • Students are still responsible for completing the application.

Note: Only special population students can be roommates or suitemates with one another within their special population.
