Once you have chosen the number of roommates, including yourself, equal to the capacity of the type of room you are planning on living in, make sure their names are listed under
Existing Roommate Requests before you log out
If it says
Unmatched Roommates, this means that someone in your group has not yet chosen you or one in your group as a roommate or have not chosen each other as roommate. You may log in at a later date or time to make sure that all of your intended roommates have all chosen each other. If it says Your roommate group is fully matched, it means that you all have chosen each other as roommates. And either you or one in your group will be able to select a room when it is time to select a room/suite on selection day (see online selection dates above).
The system will automatically generate e-mails to your roommates when you add or remove them.
All roommate requests must match in order for your group to select a room on Room Selection day.
IMPORTANT TROUBLESHOOTING TIP FOR ROOM SELECTION DAY
As the room selection goes along, there will be less and less rooms available of certain types, therefore, you may run in to the problem of having 4 people in your group but no rooms that hold 4 people, if this happens you may need to divide your group up. In order to do this, we have provided further instructions:
Talk with your group AS A WHOLE, decide who will room with whom. Remember, when you remove people as your roommate, they are informed of this through email.
When you have decided how your group will split up, you can log in to MyHousing at any time.
Room Selection menu, choose Roommates/Suitemates.
Remove, next to the roommates you want to remove. This will automatically send an email to the student you have removed.
Everyone in your group will have to do this correctly in order for all of your roommate requests to match.
If the room type you are interested in is a 4 person room type, you will need to wait until the 2 person room selection date before you are able to log back in to choose a room with your "new group".
Phase 3: Choose Your Room
Log in to MyHousing portal beginning at common hour (12:30pm) for all these room selections see online selection dates above :
LLC Room Selection
General Room 3-person/4-person room
General Room 2-person room
If you are unable to get a 4-person/3- person room Regroup Requests for the 2 person room selection.
Only one person from your group will need to log in - as long as all of your roommate requests "match" correctly.
Room Selection menu, click Select a Room or Suite or from your MyHousing home page only if your selection time has started.
Find Available Rooms.
Select the room you want by clicking on
Select Room or Select Suite next to the room you want.
If the room your group is choosing is a suite - you will be directed to a page where you will use the drop down boxes to choose who will be assigned to each bed. Make sure to assign each person one bed.
Once you are finished, click the
Submit Room Selection button. No changes can be made after clicking the Submit Room Selection button.
An e-mail will be automatically sent to each member of your group telling them that a room has been chosen.
No one else in the group will need to log in - EVERY PERSON in your group will be "pulled in" to that room as long as all of your Matching Request Columns say "Match".
