University Housing & Dining Services is proud to offer the Roommate Matching Network™ to students applying for on-campus housing.
Students can begin using the Roommate Matching Network™ as soon as they apply for housing. Students who do not select a roommate or do not find a roommate using the Roommate Matching Network™ will be paired, using an automated process, based on their profile and building preferences. Information published on the Roommate Matching Network™ should be considered public.
Students may also find roommates on the UHDS facebook page. Check the discussions tab for a list of students looking for roommates!
Roommate requests must be 100% mutual to be considered valid. Room type must match roommate request! If you select a single room and roommate, you will most likely be assigned a single room, without your roommate. If you select a double room and two roommates, you will NOT be assigned a triple room with your roommates. We do not allow the option for 4 students to select to live in a suite.
Take your time choosing a roommate.
Please make your roommate selection by June 1st. Every effort will be made to accommodate your roommate request. Applicants will be placed together based on room availability. If you are applying after June 1st you are welcome to participate in the Roommate Matching Network™; however, due to limited fully open rooms, roommate matching may not be possible.

Room changes occur between weeks 3 through 9 of each term. If you would like to change your room, please follow the steps below:
When moving-out of your old room, follow the guidelines found on the Moving Out web page when cleaning your room and scheduling a checkout with your RA/CD.
Room changes that continue past Sunday at 5:00pm are subject to an Improper Check-Out Fee of $50.00. Should you continue to occupy two rooms beyond that time, you will also be subject to additional fees up to $250.00 and/or be charged for both rooms.
If your roommate moves out during a term, please be advised that you must ensure that the room is ready to receive a new roommate at any time. In preparation of possibly receiving a roommate, a UHDS staff member will key into your room to ensure that half of the space is available.
A half-open room involves the following items:
For more details please refer to section (12) of the contract titled ‘Room Vacancies’ in the University Housing and Dining Services Room and Dining 2011-2012 Contract.
If you refuse to accept a roommate (or your room is not ready for a roommate at the time of check-in), UHDS will process a fine of up to $250 and charge you for all sides of the room until the room has been made available for a roommate; and you will be referred to your Residential Education staff for appropriate conduct action.
