Welcome, incoming Shark Residents! It is important for each of you to understand the details and steps related to the returner room selection process. It is particularly important that you make yourself aware of the Group system, as this will play a role in your room selection start time. Please review the information below.
Please view our step by step guidelines below for more information on how to select a room within our housing system.
Roommate Matching Criteria
How to Select a Room
This year, students will be able to select their own roommates and assign approved roommates to their desired room.
Please note that students will only be able to request and approve students who are within their same term group. This process was developed after careful consideration of last year’s student feedback requesting that we ensure students with more terms lived on receive priority when selecting their rooms.
Ex. a student who has 1 term lived on, cannot request or approve a request from a student who has 7 terms lived on.
The groups below can only request each other as roommates
Please note that Incoming new students cannot participate in roommate matching until May 3. 2019.
