Type your student ID number into the text box to indicate your agreement to the terms and conditions for housing. You have the option to print this page for your own records. Press “Save & Continue” to continue.  

STEP 11: The next page will read “Roommate Groups.” Here you can join a roommate group, edit the members in your group or create a new group. 

  • If you are not participating in the room selection process in a roommate group, you can click “Search for Roommates by Profiles” for suggestions based on shared living space preferences or you can click “Save & Continue” and skip to STEP 11

  • If you have already added yourself to a roommate group, you will have the “Edit Group” option, where you can make changes to your group. 
  • Roommate groups must be the same number as spaces in the room/apartment you would like to select. For example, a Wolf Village apartment would require a roommate group of four and a room in Turlington would require a roommate group of two. 

STEP 13: On the “Roommate Groups” page, you can message other members of your roommate group, or change the leader of the group. We recommend that the group leader be the person with the earliest room selection time. When your group is ready, click “Verify Group.” Click “Save & Continue” after you receive a “Your roommate group has been verified” notification.  

STEP 14: The next page will read “Application Status.” Your room selection time block will be listed at the bottom of the page when your application has been approved.
