    Waiver applications can be found on the Residence Life website under Documents & Forms and must be turned into the Office of Residence Life by the deadline.

    Students will be notified of the Housing Waiver Committee’s decision.

  • Click “Continue” at the bottom of the page when finished.

    The number 1 thing that prevent students from getting their first choice last year was that they didn’t complete the form.

    Always check the bottom of the screen for a button.

  • 5. Complete the Housing Profile page and then click continue at the bottom of the page when finished. We collect this information in order to match possible roommates as well as make some decisions about what services Residence Life offers for housing in the future.

  • 6. The website will then take you to the Housing Selection page. This is where you will find the assignment you have selected for next year. If this is your first time logging in, no assignment will be shown.

  • 7. On this same page, you can see if another student has requested you as a roommate. To accept this request, click “Accept”, then “Register.” This will automatically assign you to the room referenced in the request. To decline this request, click “Decline.” This means you will need to click “Room Options” to begin selecting a space.

  • 8. To select a space, click “Room Options” at the top of the page. From here, you can select which residential building/area you wish to live in for next year. *Please note that students who select to live in Barnett Hall or The Suites may be reassigned to a different location if spaces are needed in order to place first-year students. If this occurs, you will be contacted to discuss available options.

  • 9. Once you have identified a residential area, the available options for that area will be shown. Some rooms will be unavailable for you to select because they are either already occupied, designated for staff, or your biological sex does not match up with the other students already in the assignment.

  • 10. To select a room, simply click on a space that is available in white.

  • 11. Once an assignment is selected, a smaller window will open, revealing more details about the space such as how many spots have been claimed as well as the names of those students already registered for the space.

    Any blank spots can be filled in with the usernames of the roommates you desire. The username is usually the initials of your first and last name and then your ID#. For instance, Sammy Sample would be SS0123456.

    Requested Roommates will have 12 hours from the day they can access the site to accept.

    You do not have to select roommates.

  • 12. Once you have selected your assignment, the website will take you back to the Housing Selection page. Here, you will be able to see the updated information of your selection. If roommates are chosen, their names will also appear here, unless they later decline the roommate request.The system does not notify individuals if roommate requests are accepted or denied. Please check back regularly.

  • 13. To confirm your selection, select Register at the bottom of this page. If you would like to join a waitlist, select “Join Waitlist” from the Room Options menu at the top of the page.

  • 14. To place yourself on a waitlist, first select the specific residential building/area you are hoping to live in for the next year.

    Next, select the number of

    roommates you would like

    to live with in this area and

    then add their usernames in

    the text boxes. You can

    provide up to five (5)

    student usernames

    depending on area chosen.

    Make sure the selected

    number matches the amount

    of usernames of your

    roommates.

    Hit Submit!

  • 15. Review the Housing Selection page. You should be able to see the room you are registered for, the waitlist that you have joined, and roommate requests that have not been accepted or declined. If you are satisfied with the selections on this page, select “Register” at the bottom of the page to begin finalizing your Housing Selection Process.

  • 16. After you select “Register,” a small window will pop up asking you to verify your registration and select a meal plan. If your room information matches what you selected, please select which meal plan you would like. The 10-Meal option will be chosen as default.

    Please note that students

    living on main campus areas

    are required to have a meal

    plan: Barnett, the Suites, and

    Residence Hall West.

    Once this is complete,

    finalize your verification by

    selecting “Submit.”

  • 17. Once you have submitted your verification, you will be taken to a page titled “Housing Assignment Recap.”

    This page is confirmation

    of your selection and it is

    necessary to close your

    browser to ensure your

    selection process is

    complete. From this

    page, you can change

    your meal plan selection

    or continue to search for

    available spaces under the

    Room Options menu.
