Advanced Roommate Search Option 1. Create a Profile Students who would like more assistance in finding a roommate are encouraged to create your profile anytime in MyHousing (preferably before Feb. 26). Be prepared to answer these types of questions on your profile:
time you go to bed, time you get up
are you organized or messy
preferred study environment (with or without music or interruptions)
You can answer as many of the listed questions as you want.
2. Search for Roommate Matches
Students should search for roommate matches Feb. 26-28 (it will close at 8:00 am on Feb 28). During these two days, contact potential roommate matches and if you find someone, request them in MyHousing. Roommate requests must be mutual, so if you request a roommate, they must agree.
Once students are "matched" as roommates, the person with the best priority number chooses the room during the open lottery, the other roommate gets pulled into that room.
REMEMBER: Every student has a chance to return to their same room during same room recontracting which takes place Feb 24-26 (closes at 8am pm Feb 26). So, if you are selecting a new roommate through Advanced Roommate Search, you and your new roommate both need to participate in the open room lottery. This means you will not be able to participate in the same room lottery (your same room is not guaranteed).
