TIP Make sure that you have spoken to your current roommate regarding your plans.
STEP 1 Prior to going online determine who you want as your roommate(s). Only select the number of roommates for your room/suite type. For example, a double shared room would only accept one (1) roommate selection. You will need to provide the roommate’s full legal name. If your requested roommate has a common name (i.e. Jon Smith), it will be helpful to have the student’s UA ID / email address. Roommate requests must be mutual PRIOR to selecting a room to be successful in the roommate selection process. Reminder: Only students who have finalized their housing & dining contract can be considered for roommate selection.
Roommate Selection Helpful Hint | Lock in your roommate before you select your room. Make any additions and changes to your roommate requests in advance of your room selection time. You can make additions and deletions during the scheduled time of your selection, but using this valuable time when you could be selecting your room could result in another individual selecting the room that you want.
