 Tips for Selecting Your Room through the Housing Portal

Preparing to Book your Room Space

New student Room selection begins at 9:00 AM on Tuesday, May 25 and will continue through 4:00 PM, Thursday, May 27.

Students may enter the online application portal on or after their designated timeslot to secure their booking for the 2021-2022 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.

Ask yourself, what is most important:
Living with your requested roommate?
Living in a specific residence hall?

If living with your requested roommate is most important, you should create both bookings at the same time. If students do not have a similar timeslot, it may be advisable to wait until the latest timeslot between both students is reached before creating the bookings.

If living in a specific residence hall is most important, you should create your booking when your timeslot opens.

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. Click "Room Search Wizard" above the  "Save and Continue" button to proceed.
  • The Rooms Search Wizard 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 a table listing each floor in the building. Click on the floor you wish to view available spaces then click Save and Continue.
  • Select a bed space on the next page and click Save and Continue. If a bed space is not listed, that means it is not available. You may need to try other floors or buildings to find an open bed space.
  • On the next page, select your bed 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 June 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, then gender designation (see legend below), and beds available.

Single-Suite rooms will always have a 1/1 designation as they are individual rooms within a suite (two rooms per suite).  Each suite has a B bedroom and a C bedroom.

Double or Double-Suite* rooms will have either a 2/2 or 1/2 designation as there are two beds in one common area.  The first number being the number of beds per room and the second number being the number of available beds.

For Example:

  • A room with two open bedrooms in Livingston Hall (single-suite rooms) would read as follows:
    Livingston 111
      Livingston 111 - B - D - 1/1
      Livingston 111 - C - D - 1/1
  • A room in Livingston Hall with only the C bedroom open would read as follows:
    Livingston 109
      Livingston 109 - C - D - 1/1

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.

  • A room in Louisiana Hall with two open beds (double rooms) would read as follows:
    Louisiana 105
      Louisiana 105 - A - D - 2/2
  • A room in Louisiana Hall with one open female bed would read as follows
    Louisiana 108
      Louisiana 108 - A - F - 1/2

*The only building with double-suites is Cardinal Newman.
