Roommate Matching

When filling out the Housing Contract, incoming and transfer students will complete a survey that Residential Life uses to pair roommates together. We want to know about your study habits, sleep preferences and even how loud you like your music. It’s important that students (not parents) complete the Housing Contract. Unlike other universities, we take a very personal approach to roommate matching and work hard to find the best fit for each student. Not every match is perfect, however. We ask that students be open-minded and remember that we have an open room-switch period two weeks after classes begin and at the semester break. Students who have a roommate in mind have an opportunity to include that information on the Housing Contract.

When will I find out who my roommate is?

Residential Life sends Housing Assignment letters in July. This letter will include information on your building and room number as well as information on how to contact your roommate.
