Roommate Matching Current WCU Students

For Current WCU Students, roommate matching will open in Early December.  You will have until mid-February to find and match with preferred roommates.

Yes, make sure to participate in roommate matching and search for your desired roommates.

Create a roommate group and confirm your group. All roommates need to complete their lease agreements before they can join the group.

For North Campus roommate groups, ensure that you have a group with the exact number of roommates you want for the suite style you desire.  Example: Need 2 students for a two-bedroom suite, 4 students for a 4-person suite and so on.

For South Campus roommate groups, you need to have a roommate group with at least one other roommate to select an apartment in either The Village or East Village apartments 

Yes, you can search for a compatible roommate within the roommate matching process. We highly encourage students to use this option in the hopes it creates the best experience for you during your time living with USH. If you find a roommate, select each other as roommate and confirm your group. 

Room Self-Selection Current WCU Students

When is room selection?

Room selection begins on February 15th and ends on February 23rd at 4pmYour specific start date and time will depend on your time slot.  

What is a time slot?  

Each roommate group will be assigned a time slot. Your time slot will be the earliest time any member of the group can log in and assign all members to a bed space. All members of the group will have the same time slot.  

How are time slots assigned?  

Time slots will be assigned based on the following: 

Roommate group size – actual number of members in group, not desired group size.
Date
Earliest date a lease was signed by a member of the group.
Selection of north vs south campus.  

What if we miss our time slot?  

The earliest you can access room selection is your time slot start time. You have until the end of room selection to choose a room, but please remember that additional time slots will be opening after yours.  

Is a private bedroom an option? 

The rooms you see will depend on the following:  
Availability at the time you select a room. 
If you selected north or south campus.

Will all members of the roommate group have the same time slot?  

Yes – if the group is completed by February 4th at 12pm when roommate matching closes.  

What do we do to prepare for room selection?  

Ensure all roommates are in the roommate group by February 4th at 12pm. 
Have the roommate group leader verify the roommate group by February 4th at 12pm. 
Pay attention to emails from USH regarding room selection and your time slot.  
Talk with your roommate group prior to your time slot opening to identify what the group wants. It is recommended that you have a few floors, buildings, and different suite styles (depending on what is available for your group size) outlined as a plan.  

Do all members of the group need to log in to select a room?  

All members of the group will have the same time slot. Only one person needs to login to select a room and assign all roommates to beds.  

What if our desired room is not available?  

You will need to select another room.  

What if our desired suite style and/or building is not available?  

If your suite style is available in another building, you will need to select that.  
If your suite style and building are not available, you will need to change the size of your roommate group in order to select a different suite style. 
There is a strong demand for The Village and East Village Apartments this year and availability may be limited based on your time slot.  

What if I opt-out of participating in roommate matching or don’t have a roommate group?  

Applicants who opt-out of roommate matching or don’t have a roommate group will be able to select from available rooms of partially assigned units after roommate groups select.   

My roommate group isn’t the number of people needed to select our desired suite style.  

You will need to have the number of people needed to fill an entire unit to participate in room selection. Incomplete groups will be given later time slots to fill in partially assigned units.  

What if I want a Studio 

USH has only 15 studios in Commonwealth HallIf you do not see a Studio when it is your time to select a room then it is not an option and you will need to select a different suite style.  

I have an approved ADA accommodation. Do I need to participate in room selection?  

If you have an approved ADA accommodation and you have selected to participate in roommate matching you will receive a timeslot and participate in room self-selection.  

If you have chosen to be administratively placed, you do not need to participate in room selection. USH will manually assign you to a bed space.  

What will happen if I do not participate in room selection?  

After room selection closes, USH will manually assign you to an available bed space.
