Roommate Search

  • This allows you to select your roommates from Room Selection applicants.

You will need to type in one identifier – your roommate(s)  syr.edu email address. Once you type in the email and click Begin Search it will display the student.  You can then confirm that selection to add them as a requested roommate.

ROOM SELECTION – SELECT ROOM:
To be assigned a selection date and time within the online selection round, you must not have already been assigned housing and be eligible for the room selection.  Once your selection date and time has begun, you will have access to selection until the end of the round or until you or your roommate select a room – whichever comes first.

WHAT TO KNOW ABOUT SELECTION DATE AND TIME

  • Each student in a selection process will have their own selection date and time.  The student in a roommate group with the earliest time will have the first opportunity to select for the group.  This does not mean the earliest person needs to select but they will have the first opportunity.  Prior consultation between roommates should be made so all members are clear about selection.  Once a selection is made and processed through to confirmation by a member of a roommate group the assignment is final.
  • A PRIORITIZED LIST OF ROOMS should be developed before your selection date and time to expedite your search of remaining available rooms for one your group desires.  A list of the rooms included in each round is available but is subject to change.
  • WHEN YOUR SELECTION DATE AND TIME ARRIVES, you can access room selection through your housing self service page.  Under the Room Selection header click ‘Select a Room’.  This will bring you the screen displaying Online Room Selection – select the Find Available Rooms button.  This will bring back a screen display of all (remaining) available rooms that meet your roommate grouping.
    • The list will be in alphabetical order by hall (residence hall) or by street (South Campus apartments) followed by the room within the residence hall, or building number and apartment number for the apartments on South Campus.
  • Once you have selected a room you will be brought to a screen displaying Room Booking and asked to assign beds within the room to yourself and your roommate(s), if any.  Initially, bed assignments will appear for everyone in your roommate group.  You can rearrange the bed assignments by accessing the drop down arrow next to each bed.
    • Bed assignments within apartments at South Campus – Chinook, Farm Acre, Lambreth, Small, Winding Ridge and Slocum Heights – are associated with specific bedrooms within the apartment and the keys issued to you upon check-in.  Discuss bedroom assignments with your roommate(s) ahead of your selection date and time.
      • 2-Bedroom townhouse apartments(Chinook, Farm Acre, Lambreth, Small & Winding Ridge):  Bed 1 is the back bedroom; Bed 2 is the front bedroom.
      • Slocum Heights 2-bedroom apartments:  As you enter the hallway, Bed 1 is the bedroom to the left; Bed 2 is the bedroom on the right.
      • 3-bedroom apartments: Bed 1 is the back bedroom; Bed 2 is the front left bedroom; Bed 3 is the front right bedroom.
  • SELECT I Agree – SUBMIT MY ROOM SELECTION button to finalize your room selection.  All members of your roommate group will be sent an automated e-mail notification of fall 2022 room assignments.  Your home screen will display your fall housing assignment and the names, room/apartment and bed assignment.
