Frequently Asked Questions

What are the group sizes for Doubles and Singles?

Only groups of two students can apply for a double. Students applying for Singles should not create a group. Only two person VERIFIED groups will be given a Doubles selection time.

Can you participate in Doubles or Singles selection if you participated in another process?

If you were unsuccessful in securing a room in Group Housing and/or Block Housing, you may regroup  and re-verify to a group of two students for doubles (or no group for singles). If you selected a space in any other housing process, you are done with the room selection process and are not eligible for Block Housing.

How are Doubles and Singles selection times calculated?

Selection times for both singles and doubles are random by class year. Those students involved in Doubles selection can only pick into doubles; students involved in Singles selection can only select single rooms. These two processes run concurrently on the same day. Those in Doubles room selection will each get an individual time and should make the group leader the student with the earlier time slot. Please see this video on changing the group leader.

How long will my group have to select a space?

We want to provide each group with as much time to select their housing as possible. The time slot you are given is your START time. You can take as much time as you want, but please be advised groups will continue picking. Once you click into a room, you will have two minutes to confirm beds.

How do I find out more information on available rooms?

Please take advantage of viewing floor plans online before logging in in for room selection so that you are fully informed of your individual room options. Theme House designations are accurate.

  • View floorplans listed by residence name here (includes square footage).
  • You will need to enter your e-mail username and password to access online floor plans. You will be able to view each room’s square footage and number of windows, as well as proximity to stairways, bathrooms, etc.

What if there are no available spaces for a singles at my turn? 

If there are no spaces left in singles at your turn, you should connect with other students and wait for the Remaining Room process on Monday, March 18th. Remaining Rooms Available will be emailed to all students with an application, but without a housing assignment. Students can group themselves in any size group. Must be verified by midnight. To watch a video showing you how to manage and reform roommate group, click here.

If after the Remaining Room process, you have not picked a space, you will be part of Summer Placement.

Selecting a Room

All students seeking housing on campus for the fall semester who do not select housing during the Off Campus, Groups, or Blocks selection must participate in Singles or Doubles Room Selection.

During this room selection process, students will select housing based on selection times randomly generated by class year. Singles selection takes place at the same time as doubles selection. As students can only be in a group of two or solo, they can occur at the same as there is a non-compete selection process.


Single Selection
To select a single, students must remove themselves from all previous roommate groups and be certain their application is not linked to any other applications (verify on Step 6, HouseCat application).
  1. Complete HouseCat application.
  2. Verify that you are not listed as a member of any roommate group of any size.
  3. Receive selection time (March 14th)
  4. During designated selection time, select your housing from available options on the HouseCat portal.

Note: Housing selection is binding. Once you have confirmed your selection on the HouseCat portal, you will not be able to change your housing.


Double Selection
1. Group leader creates group of two and manages membership.If the intended roommate has completed their application, the group leader can add them to the application directly. If not, the intended roommate can add themselves to the group when they create their application. The group leader must share the group name and password for the group with the their intended roommate so that they will be able to add themselves.

If an intended roommate has not yet completed their application, the group member can add themselves to the group after they complete their application.

2. Group leaders verify group.After the other roommate joins the group of two, the group leader needs to verify the group of two to be certain that membership is correct. If a group of two is not verified, the group leader will not be able to select housing during the room selection process.
3. Each group member receives a selection timeslot. (March 14th) After all groups are verified and the application window closes, each group member will receive a time slot.
4. Group selects housing during selection time.During their designated room selection time, the group leader (with consultation from their roommate) will select the group’s housing from available options on the HouseCat portal. It is the group leader’s responsibility to select housing for the group. If a group needs to change their group leader, they may do so in the same location where they manage group membership (HouseCat step 6).

Groups will only to be able to select housing in spaces where their group size exactly matches the number of beds available.

Note: Housing selection is binding. Once you have confirmed your selection on the HouseCat portal, you will not be able to change your housing.To watch a video showing you how choose a double or single room, click here.
