Start times that are listed on this screen are when you will be able to begin selecting your housing assignment.

Searching available rooms using no filters will show you all remaining spaces that are available during your housing selection process. Adding filters will narrow the search and may exclude available options.


For group selections: This screen allows the selector to place the correct roommates together within a quad/suite.

Important Notes for Roommate Group Housing

  • All students in your group need to be housed for the entire space to be secured.
  • Groups that are not completely housed will be removed from the assignments they selected by the system.
  • If the student who selects rooms does not get a confirmation email, your group is not housed.
  • Example Scenario...
    • If Students A, B, C, D, E and F are in a group of 6 and a 6 person suite is available for Casey Tower, all 6 need to be placed in that suite to be secured.
    • If only students A,B,C & D are placed in rooms but E&F are not, this suite is not secured and it's available for other students to select.

Troubleshooting: if there are not any rooms to accommodate your group size; if process allows, return to beginning of selection and select your rooms not in a suite by dividing into subgroups
