Tips for Selecting Your Room through the Housing Portal

Preparing to Book your Room Space

New student Room selection will take place May 20th through May 23rd, 2024.

Students may enter the online application portal on or after their designated timeslot to secure their booking for the 2024-2025 Academic Year term.

If you participated in the Roommate Matching process, the roommate with the earlier timeslot can book the room assignment for both roommates.  Therefore, we recommend that students communicate during the room selection process in order to secure a bed space in the same room. It is also important that roommates have a conversation about desired residence halls with a couple of back-up options in case the first option does not have adequate spaces available.
All students must meet any applicable academic criteria to book into those buildings which have academic requirements.  A list of residence halls and their requirements can be found on our Housing Options web page.

Room Selection Steps to Completion

  • On the Rooms Page, please review the rates associated with each residence hall space. It is important that students and/or the person responsible for their finances are aware of the cost of a space before proceeding with the booking. In your Housing Portal, proceed to Room Selection.
  • The Room Selection page will list each building and a brief description of each. Click on the blue hyperlinked residence hall name to continue. If a student is not eligible for a particular residence hall(s) they will not be listed.
  • Once you select a building, you will see all available spaces in that building.
  • When you find the room you want, click “add to cart” and click Save and Continue. If a bed space is not listed, that means it is not available. You may need to try other buildings to find an open bed space.
  • On the next page, select your bed space from the drop-down menu then click Reserve Bed. It is important to consider your selection carefully before committing to the booking.

PLEASE NOTE: Bookings CANNOT be reversed. Once the bed is confirmed the booking cannot be changed; students will have an opportunity to participate in Room Swap in July if they prefer another space. Students have five minutes to confirm the bed reservation. If the bed is not reserved before the “countdown timer” expires, the student must begin the process again.


Understanding the Room Description 

Hall Name will appear first, followed by the room number,  and letter.

Single-Suite rooms will always have a B or C after the room number.

Double or Double-Suite* rooms will have either an A1 0r A2 after the room number.

While the gender of the bedroom is “Dynamic” if there is someone booked into either the B or C room, a student must have the same gender to book into the available bedroom. Students will only see spaces which match their gender.

University Housing reserves the right to make changes in campus housing occupancy limits, to be either more or less restrictive, based upon prevailing public health guidance and other pertinent information available at the time.
