Student Housing Agreement 


During the Application, the Group Leader will log in and create the group with a username and a password.

Then he or she will share the name and password with the group members.

The Group Leader cannot add members to the group. However, the Leader can remove members and delete the group.

The Group Leader does not need to have the highest priority. (See Group Priority below.)


Once you log in and join the group that the Group Leader has created, everyone in the group will receive an email letting them know that you have joined.

Group activity (new members joining, members leaving, group being deleted) will be reported to all members via email.

Any member of the group can assign the group members to spaces during Room Selection.




If you want to find someone to fill out a group, you will be able to search using the roommate matching tool.

You can do a simple search and get a list of possible roommates and how compatible they are.

Found someone you want to connect with? You can message others within the system and learn more about them.


Group priority is determined by an average of group members' random lottery numbers.

Priority is based first on class year (regardless of credit count). Students are then sorted by total number of Priority Points (the more Priority Points, the earlier your time slot), then by cumulative credit hours. Each student is assigned a random lottery number.

The group time slot to self-select spaces will be emailed to group members in early March.


If everyone in the group cannot be assigned to one unit during Room Selection, the group can be broken up. Group members can assign themselves; all group members retain the original group time slot.




Students who would like to live in an Other Housing Opportunity will indicate that in application and complete supplemental steps as required. Students applying to Other Housing Opportunties in the Select a New Room track may form Roommate Groups.

Housing Opportunities for 2015-2016 included:


    Students interested in All Gender Housing will need to apply to All Gender Housing under the Other Housing Options section of the application. Roommate Groups are formed by searching for other students who have also applied for All Gender Housing. Roommate matches must be mutual.
