Room assignments are managed by Student Life staff. The University reserves the right to have staff allocate room and building assignments at their discretion to build communities that will promote the mission of the University and maximize efficiency. This may include making temporary room arrangements, changing room assignments, reassigning roommates, or consolidating vacancies as needed.

Whenever possible, roommates are selected on the basis of compatibility from information provided on housing applications. Specific roommate requests can be made on the housing application. When they are received well in advance of the start of the semester, mutual roommate requests can usually be accommodated.
