Room Selection


Room Selection Timeslot

A timeslot will inform an applicant when they go log into their Resident Portal to select a building and room they wish to live in. When logged in with a timeslot, applicants will only be able to see rooms/buildings that are available to select. If the room/building is not showing, that means someone has already selected it.

Timeslots are only used for the Fall and Academic terms. 

Spring, Spring/Summer, Summer and Winter terms do not use room selection timeslots. Room and building placements will be sent in the offer letter for these terms. 

Non-first year applications received prior to February 10, may receive an Offer of Residence with a time slot in March. Students who apply after February 10, may receive an Offer of Residence with the next set of offers. Check the Resident Portal for up to date offers.

Yes, if you wish to live in residence you must select a room, or else your Offer of Residence will be canceled. Once your time slot is deleted, you will need to contact Residence Services and ask to be placed on the wait list.

Advance time slots are given to residents that win contests or have been given one due to being involved throughout the year. These residents are granted a pre-selection option whereby they are able to choose from available rooms before (one day prior) the majority of other resident applicants.

Applicants are able to live with one to three others, depending on the room type.

All roommates will need be part of the same roommate group prior to the start of timeslots opening. Prior to the start of the earliest timeslot, all members must have logged into their Resident Portal and joined the same roommate group. Members of the group must be the same resident classification and be staying for the same term.

The roommate group member with the earliest timeslot will need to be the "Group Leader", to be able to pull in all roommates. They will only be able to pull in roommates that have also received a timeslot. If someone in the roommate group doesn't have a timeslot, they will need to wait until the next set of offers but will not be guaranteed to be placed into the same unit with their roommate group. It is very important that all members of the roommate group have applied prior to the application cut off date.

We do allow co-ed units in residence. All residents must contact Residence Services and request each other as a roommates, as we manually have to update your roommate group.

Spring/Summer and Winter Terms

There are a limited number of units available during these terms, therefore, room selection is not offered. On the application, applicants will be able to select their preferred room types and buildings. Apartments are assigned to on a first-come, first-served basis. The specific room availability will be included in your Offer of Residence.

Family Housing Townhouses

Townhouses are assigned to applicants on a first-come, first-served basis. There is currently a wait list. Applications are added to the wait list according to the date and time they were received. Wait times vary depending on availability and applicants’ preferred move-in dates. When a townhouse is available, the Family Housing Office will contact you, usually about one month in advance.
