All aspects of the housing selection process are conducted in online formats including roommate matching.
HSP is how current returning students select their rooms for the following academic year. First-year students do NOT select their own room, first-year students are assigned a room through an automated process. The room selection order for returning student room selection depends upon only 2 things:
1) class year
2) a randomly generated priority number
Those numbers determine when students pick a room within their class year. When grouped with a roommate(s), the combined average of each student's number is used to determine the order of selection for all roommate groups. This means that students who select a roommate from a later class year will select a room at a later time than everyone in their own class year.
Please follow the instructions below for navigating the housing selection process.
Access The Housing Director - Self-Service system using this link: The Housing Director - Self-Service and log in using your Holy Cross username and password.
Complete the Housing and Board Agreement. All students will need to complete the housing agreement before having access to register with roommates. If you don't yet have roommates you plan to live with, you can create a roommate profile, update personal information used to search for roommates, and search for potentially compatible roommates.
Step by step instructions for completing the housing agreement as well as registering with and searching for roommates can be found here: housing agreement and roommate registration instructions.

Housing Selection Process Dates
Group room selection appointment times will be determined and sent out in the days prior to room selection. Students should expect selection times to take place during the academic day. Only one person from each group needs to complete the room selection and the system is compatible with most mobile devices. We recommend accessing The Housing Director-Self-Service from the device you plan to use to select a room prior to your group's selection time.
