New Incoming and Transfer Students - Choose a Roommate

(September 2013 - May 16, 2014, 11pm)

Choosing a roommate: New incoming and transfer students for Fall 2014 may request a roommate in the Housing Portal, if they have one in mind. We will make every effort to honor all roommate requests that are mutual. Honoring roommate requests is based on room availability and individual circumstances, therefore we cannot guarantee that all mutually accepted requests will be honored.

Choosing a room: New incoming and transfer students for Fall 2014 do not choose their room for their first semester at UWRF - the department of Residence Life will assign those students to a room.
