So that the best possible roommate selections can be made, Housing and Residence Life does not begin the matching/assignment process until after the deadline for submission of the Housing Assignment Request Forms. Therefore, new students should expect to receive a room assignment and roommate information by email in mid-July.

Housing and Residence Life gives considerable time and thought to matching roommates. All new resident students should carefully complete the Housing Assignment Request Form. A link to this form will be made available by email on May 21, 2015. The form will be due by The form will be due by June 12, 2015. Though meeting the June 12 deadline is required, no advantage is given to students for submitting the form earlier during this window of time. We strongly believe in the success of our roommate matching process; therefore, we do not allow new students to choose their own roommate(s)

Any applicant who receives a letter from Admission after the Any applicant who receives a letter from Admission after the June 12 deadline should email us immediately at We will then email them a link to a private form for students admitted late. Before completing the form, review the different residence hall descriptions. Please note that priority is given to residence hall requests based on a random computer-generated lottery number assigned to the Housing Assignment Request forms on on June 12 at 5:00 p.m. Priority is not given based on the order the submissions are received.

Most residence hall rooms are designed for either two or three students. Find answers to your questions about triple rooms and the selection process at Triple Room FAQs. A limited number of single rooms are available for new students.

Students who require or who wish to make any special housing requests due to a diagnosed disability or medical need must follow the proper request procedures by June 12, 2015. This includes a request to alter a room in any way, even as simple as a medical need for a student to bring his/her own mattress.
