Housing Agreement & Roommate Selection Open

Date: July 23, 2020

The fall 2020 housing agreement and roommate selection process is now open and will close on July 26th. The entire process will take place online, from completing the housing agreement to actually picking a room. For more information, please visit our website: housing selection process. There you will find step by step instructions with screenshots as well as video tutorials for each step of the process.

Access the system using this link: The Housing Director - Self-Service and login using your Holy Cross username and password.

Only students who have responded to the Acknowledgement and Election of Options form form to indicate that they plan to "reside on-campus" will have access to complete a housing agreement and select roommates. All students need to complete the housing agreement before having access to selecting roommates. We understand that students roommate groups may have changed significantly recently, please use the links below to post if you are seeking a roommate.

Be sure to check those sheets everyday as new students will be added until the housing agreement and roommate selection deadline.

Returning Students - Class of 2021, 2022, and 2023

Returning students who do not complete the housing agreement and/or do not select roommates will not participate in the online room selection process. Please note, that due to the restrictions to campus life as detailed in the Fall 2020 guide (PDF), students will only be permitted to occupy bedrooms in groups of 2. This means that roommate groups of 3 or 5 total students will be subject to administrative reconfiguration and at least one of the students in the group may not be permitted to participate in the room selection process. Please be sure to select roommates in groups of 2, 4, or 6 for maximum flexibility and options in room selection.

First-Year Students -  Class of 2024

The College is permitting first-year students to select one roommate, though you are not required to do so. First-year students who wish to choose a roommate will follow the same roommate selection process as returning students. The last day to select a roommate is Sunday, July 26th. Late or unmatched roommate selections will not be accepted after that date.

If you try to request a roommate and can't find the student you're looking for in the roommate search, check with them directly that they have completed the housing agreement as required. If you don't yet have roommates you plan to live with, the system allows all students to create a roommate profile, update personal information used to search for roommates, and search for potentially compatible roommates. This search feature also requires that students have completed the housing agreement, so if you are looking for a new roommate, be sure to search everyday as new students will be added until the housing agreement and roommate selection deadline.
