This step cannot be started until you submit your completed housing application.

  6. On the next screen you will see three options for roommate groups:
    • Freshman to Freshman
    • Upperclassmen to Upperclassmen
    • All classes (For Freshman and Upperclassman that want to be roommates)
  7. Select the option that applies to your group. 
  8. Click the green "Create Group" button and click the green "Invite" button to request group members.
  9. Enter your desired person's first and last name. If an individual has a common name, then you will have to enter their University ID #. Hit "select" once you found the right person.
  10. Repeat step 9 if you have multiple roommate requests.
  11. Once everyone is selected, click the next step button.
  12. You will see a summary screen which will include information on the people you have requested. After you have reviewed this information, click the big red "Finish" button to finalize your roommate pairing request. You have not officially completed roommate pairing until you click the "Finish" button.
  13. After the "Finish" button is selected, the other roommate group members will receive an email to their University email account informing them:
    • Who requested them as a roommate.
    • Roommate group type.
  14. Click the included link to begin the process of accepting the invitation.
  15. After clicking the link, the requested person will be directed to the student housing portal.

  17. After making their decision, they will be transferred to the confirmation page and will have the click "Finish" to finalize roommate grouping.

It is highly recommended that you complete this task sooner rather than later to have a greater chance of having your roommate grouping honored.
