RESERVATION 

When will I choose my room reservation?
Room selection begins for returning residents during the spring semester.  Students will receive a reminder via their Rocket email. *Please note the Office of Residence Life will send all correspondence to the student’s assigned UT email account (Rocket email). Information on how to activate this account can be found at http://myut.utoledo.edu/myut/myut_loginhelp.html.

When does the room reservation process start?
Room selection begins for returning residents during the spring semester. If you do not reserve your by noon on June 30, you will be automatically assigned a room based on space availability.

How do I find a roommate?
Make sure you complete the Personal Preferences Profile when applying for housing.  Your profile answers will be compared to other applicant profiles and a list of potential roommates who match your profile will be generated.  You may also search for a roommate by student number or name. Remember, only students who have applied for housing can be requested as roommates. You will be able to contact potential roommates through myUT Housing messaging or via Rocket email . 

Once you have chosen a roommate, you must send a roommate request via myUT Housing.  Once the roommate request has been accepted, the student with the earlier reservation time or the first to choose a completely empty room will pull the confirmed roommate into that room. Remember, even if you both have confirmed as roommates, you really aren’t roommates until a room has been reserved.

What if I don’t choose a roommate?
Choosing your roommate is optional.  You can reserve a room you are interested in without going through the roommate process. At any time, you can view the profile of other students reserved in your room/suite.  If you decide to change rooms prior to noon on June 30, you will need to cancel the room reservation via the online housing application and select a new room.  After noon on June 30, you are unable to change your room assignment until the third week of classes in September.
