    November 16, 2020

    First Time Freshman Housing Application opens.


    November 16, 2020 until March 1, 2021 (11:59 CST)

    FTF who apply during this timeframe will be allowed to choose their own room (in June) from a select number of rooms available in Blazer, Gold, and Green Halls.


    March 2, 2021 until Fall Term begins

    FTF who apply during this timeframe will be assigned by the Housing Assignments Team.


    March 15, 2021 at noon CDT

    RoomSync app opens and FTF may begin forming their roommate groups in myHousing. FTF can request one FTF roommate. Instructions will be emailed to applicants who applied earlier than this date, and added to application and finish emails for future applicants.

    Process: Student initiates request in myHousing, and it sends an email to their roommate preference asking them to join their “group”. Student must respond and accept or deny the request (this will send an email back to the original student letting them know the reply). If the student does not respond, request is considered denied. If either student removes themselves from the group, it sends an email to the other letting them know of the change. This gives the process total transparency and puts students in the driver’s seat.


    June 1, 2021

    Roommate Request Deadline: all roommate groups must be complete by this date. There will be no additional roommate group changes after this date. Students who are not in a roommate group will be assigned based on the answers to the roommate matching questions in myHousing.

    FTF who applied by March 1st will have the opportunity to select their room online from a select number of rooms available in Blazer, Gold, and Green Halls. On June 11th, they will receive an email with step-by-step instructions, and a log in time. They can log in any time between their log-in time and the deadline on June 18th to select a room. They will be allowed to pull in 1 roommate if: that person has submitted a housing application, AND they have a valid roommate group (indicates a mutual request).
