The office of Residence Life is excited to offer a select group of new students the chance to use our online room selection process. Students who submitted a housing contract and deposit payment between September and March 1 are eligible to self-assign. Invitations to participate were mailed out May 3, 2013. All other students will either be placed in a room by an early contract student or the Office of Residence Life. Assignment confirmation letters will be mailed late June.
Early contract students were divided into three tiers. Tier 1 is students with contracts submitted between September and November. Students who submitted a housing contract in December are grouped in Tier II; and students who submitted a housing contract between January and March 1 are in Tier III.
The housing portal opens for each tier as follows:
Tier I entry date is May 12 starting at 6 am and closes June 7
Tier II entry date is May 15 starting at 6 am and closes June 7
Tier III entry date is May 19 starting at 6 am and closes June 7
Instructions for self assign (only students eligiable can log into the system to complete the process listed below. To participate, you need your: SE-Key xxxxxxxxx#s, Student ID# «S0xxxxxxx», and your RMS ID «xxxxx» (the RMS ID is needed to pull a roommate into the room). The Se-Key, Student ID, and RMS ID will be sent to eligible participants prior to May 12.
Steps to accessing the Housing Portal:
The room selection process is designed for students to pull in a roommate, if you have a roommate; the person with the earlier entry date should place the other in the room. To participate you need the RMS and Student ID# of your friend to place her/him in the open bed of the room selected. Individuals without a roommate can select a room; however, reassignment may occur if no one selects the second bed in the room chosen. Buildings with high demand have limited space available.
The room selection website does not work on Google Chrome, mobile devices, Kindles, or IPads/IPods. If you attempt to access this site from your school and have difficulty, it may be a result of the firewalls set by your school administrator. Warning! This site has multiple scroll bars! Individuals using laptops with small screens should make sure all scroll bars are visible on each page. For best results, have all passwords and IDs ready.
Please note: You must have submitted a Contract for University Housing and have paid your $150 housing deposit in order to be eligible for a housing assignment.
If you want to change your assignment, repeat the previous steps to access the portal. From the Welcome page select Room Assignment History. Select "undo" for both the fall and spring room assignment. Next select Meal Plan History and select "undo" for both fall and spring semester meal plans. Use the log out link to close the screen and reenter the housing portal to begin a new room search. This option will be turned off June 1.
