It is time to starting making plans about what type of room you want for the next school year. It is almost room selection time and you want to be prepared. If you are unsure how room selection occurs here are some tutorials:
Same Room Selection
Same Room is for those who wish to remain in the room they are currently in. Just remember that to participate in this room selection you cannot request a roommate.
This one is not an actual room selection. This is how you would request the people you would like to room with. After this you will want to request a room during Open Room Selection.
Open Room Selection With Roommate Matching
If you have your roommates already selected then you are going to follow these instructions.
Open Room Selection Without Roommate Matching
Open Room Selection is when you can select any room that is available. The link above is Open Room Selection when you did not request a roommate.
Room Selection Dates
- Same Room: 3/3 – 3/5
- Matching Roommate: 3/6 – 3/9
- Shenks: 3/9
- Open Room: 3/10 – 3/31
Please follow these steps to ensure that you have your student housing secured for the 2019 – 2020 academic year.

Remember the University’s Housing Residency Requirement:
All full-time undergraduate students with less than 60- credit hours earned are required to live on campus. On campus is defined as residing in one of the following residence halls: East Village, Reighard Hall, Shenks Hall, South Village, or West Village. Students interested in living off-campus must have completed at least 60 credits before they can move off-campus.
Students who have not yet completed 60-credit hours but have completed at least 30-credit hours can live in our affiliate housing. Affiliate housing is defined as any housing managed by Student Lodging, Inc. (SLI), which includes Brookwood, College View, Wellness, and other properties owned by SLI.
To Live in Student Lodging, Inc. (SLI) Affiliate Housing
Steps to follow:
- Submit an off-campus request to HARP through MAX. See the instructions below.
- If approved, you will receive a waiver from HARP emailed with a specific waiver number. At that point, you may apply with SLI at their office. You must provide your printed waiver to the SLI office staff.
- Complete your application and payment with SLI. All students planning to live in an apartment together must have approved waivers before the SLI application will be accepted.
*Note: Affiliate housing waivers are limited and are based on a first come, first served basis provided that space is available.
