Roommate Request Process for Housing Renewals

To request a roommate, a student must have a completed housing contract for Fall 2023 – Spring 2024. Students must complete their contract first and then REVISIT the Roommate Selection page of the contract to match with roommate(s).

On the LifeStyles Question page of the housing contract you must check "Display in Roommate Search results and participate in roommate matching” if you want your profile to be visible for roommate searching and matching. This will allow students to view your profile and request you as a roommate.

Important Information to Request a Roommate:

  • You may only request roommates with a completed housing contract for Fall 2023 - Spring 2024
  • To match with a roommate your answers to the General Question “I request to live in gender inclusive housing (Yes/No)” must match.
    • If you answer No to this question, you can only match with other students who have answered No.
    • If you answer Yes to this question, you can only match with other students who have answered Yes.
  • Discuss in advance if you are matching with a roommate who will have an approved emotional support animal (ESA) or Service Animal. Residents must receive approval through Student Accessibility Services for an ESA. Please follow the deadlines for housing accommodations.
  • Make sure you check your FAU email frequently for roommate requests and updates for any roommate changes.
  • Students may cancel and change roommates until 5 p.m. on February 24.
  • FAU Housing and Residential Education does not cancel or change student roommate requests. Students manage this through the roommate selection process.
  • Students will receive emails for roommate requests and when a roommate request is canceled.
  • Roommate requests expire in two days, and requests cannot be added, canceled or accepted at 5 p.m. on January 20. 

 

On the Roommate Selection page of the application, you may find a roommate two ways:

  • Search by Details:
    • Allows you to enter a Z number or WebID. This is useful if you already know the person you are going to request as a roommate.
    • If you know who you want in your roommate group, plan in advance who will be your GROUP LEADER.
    • You become a GROUP LEADER when you send a roommate request.
    • The GROUP LEADER manages the roommate group requests.
      • Only one person should request roommates for the entire group. The GROUP LEADER should enter the Z# and select "Send Roommate Request" to each roommate.
      • Requested roommates will receive an email and must accept the roommate request through the Fall 2023 – Spring 2024 housing contract. You may match up to four students in a roommate group.
  • Search by Suggest Roommates:
    • Suggests roommates who closely match your Lifestyle questions.
    • You may send a roommate request to a student when you search for Suggest Roommates.
    • You automatically become a GROUP LEADER when you request a roommate.
      • Students will receive an email for roommate request(s). To accept a roommate request, you must accept the roommate request through the Fall 2023 – Spring 2024 housing contract. You may match up to four students in a group.

If you do not match with a roommate, you will be placed with a roommate based on the Lifestyle questions you answered.
