Housing Selection Process

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.

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.
