Updated educational and informational materials for the spring 2013 room selection process have now been posted. Roommate preferencing starts on March 28th, the same day the MyHousing channel will appear in students' Gateway.
Welcome to the Room Selection process for the 2013-2014 academic year. The online housing selection program, MyHousing, can be accessed through the Student Resources tab of your Gateway. On this program, students can view their lottery time, set roommate preferences, view available housing options, and select a housing assignment. There are three major steps in order to complete the online housing process:
- Roommate preferencing
- Exploring room options
- Room selection
Please read through the information on this page and in the attached documents, as it will answer most of your questions. If you still have questions, please attend one of the information sessions, stop by the Office of Campus Life during normal business hours (Monday through Friday, 8:30AM-4:30PM), or email us at email@example.com.
Spring 2013 Calendar for Room Selection Process
Roommate Preference CardAll students are strongly encouraged to complete this form, as it helps students identify multiple back-up options in the event that their first choice of housing assignments isn't available at the time of room selection. This card is also available at the Office of Campus Life.
MyHousing Tutorial with Screenshots
A guide to completing the three steps for room selection with accompanying screen shots of MyHousing to assist in learning how to navigate the program.
A one-page reference guide on completing the three steps for room selection. All students (except graduating seniors) will also receive a paper copy of this quick reference in their HUB mailboxes on Wednesday, March 27th.
Proxy Instructions and Educational Information This is a one-page instructional and educational guide on proxying for another student during room selection.
In the event a student needs a proxy because they cannot select housing at their appointed time, the student with the best lottery time needs to complete a Proxy Request form. All proxy requests are due on Thursday, April 12th by 4:00 PM to the Office of the Campus Life.
Roommate Search Sheet
Students searching for a roommate can complete and submit a Roommate Search Sheet. Completed Roommate Search Sheets are kept on file in the Office of Campus Life and students may stop by to view and/or select a roommate from these sheets.
This document contains the language of all pop-ups for certain room types and properties around campus. Typically, only the person selecting a room for their group would see this. Since these pop-ups contain valuable information, a copy of them is being included here for students to review. If you have questions about which pop-ups pertain to a specific housing location, please contact Campus Life.
- The Office of Campus Life will also be sponsoring a Roommate Search Mixer on April 12th at 12:00 Noon in HUB SR 201, to allow students to meet and talk with other students looking for roommate/room options.
