PICKING YOUR ROOM

When will I get to pick my room?

How do I find a roommate? 
The Roommate Groups page in the application will walk you through the process. roommate group

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 specific roommate by name. Only students who have applied for housing can be requested as roommates. You will be able to message potential roommates through your myUT Housing Application.

If you find someone that you would be interested in rooming with, you must send a roommate request via myUT Housing Application.  Once the roommate request has been accepted, the student with the earlier room selection time slot can pull the confirmed roommate into that room. Roommate groups are not guaranteed to live together, group placement is dependent on space availability.

What if I don’t choose a roommate? 
Choosing your roommate is optional.  You can pick a room without going through the roommate process. At any time, you can view the profile of other students that share your room/suite. 

If you decide to change rooms prior to June 17, you will need to cancel the room assignment via your myUT Housing Application and select a new room.  After June 17, you are unable to change your room assignment until the third week of classes in September.
