How do I choose a roommate?

Admitted students that have paid the academic deposit are invited to file the housing application and housing deposit. Once your application is processed, you will have access to the housing self-selection portal to choose your room and roommate. The housing self-selection portal opens in early October and closes at the end of February. Starting in March, housing assigns manually.
