Roommates

When will I know who my roommate is?

Roommate Requests

The deadline for roommate requests was June 1 for roommates to request and confirm within the housing portal in order for the request to be considered mutual. We are not able to guarantee any request after June 1.

How are single room requests processed? Can I request on now?

Requests are processed in housing application date order when the housing application was completed. Requests for singles received via the "connect.smu" form during AARO prior to the July 27the deadline will be reviewed and processed on a space available basis. Students reassigned to a single will be notified after a change is made. Demand for single rooms is always higher than supply, and submitting a request does not mean that a single is available.
