Frequently Asked Questions
The Office of Residential Life encourages you to meet as many new people as possible. We do not discriminate based on race, religion, gender orientation, nationality or culture when assigning roommates.
Incoming First Year students who have completed and submitted the Residence Hall Agreement are given access to the Roommate Search tool following the June Orientation sessions, with which you are able to request one roommate for the upcoming academic year.
Requests for additional roommates can be made through the Roommate Search tool, but our department only guarantees placement with your first confirmed roommate. Housing assignments are made manually for incoming first-year students and are typically sent out by email in early July.
Incoming First Year students live in East Hall, Loftus Hall or Rice Hall.
Incoming Transfer students live in the Conese Hall, Rice Hall or Hales Hall.
The Office of Residential Life sends out housing assignments approximately the second week in July.

During the first week of the fall and spring semester the Office of Residential Life verifies that students are here and in their proper housing assignment to confirm that our records are accurate. It is for this reason that room/housing assignment changes are not permitted until after the first week of the fall and spring semester.
If you would like to request a room/housing assignment change, please contact your Resident Assistant or your Residence Hall Director.
