Traditional Single Room Process
Traditional Single Room Process (Begins March 4, 2023)
All unassigned, continuing upper-division students who submitted their Housing Registration are eligible to participate in the traditional single room process. Traditional single rooms are available in Cole (female), Tolman (male), Blakemore (male), and McTyeire. Single rooms on the 2nd floor of McGill Hall may also be available for selection and are not a part of the McGill Project.
Traditional Single Room Application:
Any student interested in participating in the Single Room Process must complete the Single Room Application in the Housing Portal between March 4 at 12 a.m. CDT and March 6, 2023 at 6 p.m. CDT.
Traditional Single Room Hallmate Groups (OPTIONAL):
Any student participating in the single room process is welcome to form a hallmate group with up to three (3) students of the same gender. Forming a hallmate group links students together for the random selection process. If the group is successful, they will select rooms together.
Forming a hallmate group will run concurrently with the Single Room Application. In order to form a hallmate group, all students must first submit their Single Room Application. Hallmate groups can be formed between March 4 at 12 a.m. CDT and March 6, 2022 at 6 p.m. CDT.
How to Form a Hallmate Group:
- Log into the Housing Portal.
- Click on “Roommate Selection”.
- Click “Select Roommates”.
- Select “Fall 2023” as the term from the dropdown menu.
- If any other student/s have already requested you as a roommate/hallmate, the requests will show under “Pending Roommate Requests”. To accept requests, click on the three dots to the left of their name and select the “Match” icon.
- To request a student, click on “Search for Roommate”. Students are encouraged to search by VUnetID.
- Confirm that all members of your roommate/hallmate group accept/request the student/s they would like in their group under “Roommate Requests.”
Failure of one (1) or more students to accept all roommates will result in the group being ineligible for the consideration in the random selection process.
IN ORDER TO BE CONSIDERED A FULLY MATCHED HALLMATE GROUP, ALL MEMBERS OF THE GROUP MUST EITHER REQUEST ONE ANOTHER OR ACCEPT ANY PENDING REQUESTS FROM OTHER GROUP MEMBERS. NO EMAILS OR COMMUNICATION REGARDING HALLMATES WILL BE SENT TO STUDENTS FROM THE OFFICE OF HOUSING ASSIGNMENTS. STUDENTS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR COORDINATING WITH ONE ANOTHER TO ENSURE GROUPS ARE PROPERLY FORMED. UNMATCHED HALLMATE GROUPS WILL BE CONSIDERED AS INDIVIDUALS IN THE RANDOM SELECTION PROCESS.
Traditional Single Room Random Selection and Results:
A seniority driven, random selection utilizing the point average of all individuals/ hallmate groups will be conducted to determine successful individuals/groups. Successful individuals/groups with higher point averages will be assigned earlier room selection times. Ties in point average will be broken via random selection.
Results will be announced via email on March 7, 2023 at 6 p.m. CDT.
Traditional Single Room Selection:
Room selection will take place online in the Housing Portal on March 8, 2023. Successful individuals/hallmate groups with selection times will be able to log into the online room selection fifteen (15) minutes prior to the start of the room selection event in order to review the available spaces. Room selections cannot be made until the individual/group scheduled selection time. For hallmate groups of two (2) or more, please designate one (1) member of the group to complete the online room selection. Individuals/groups are welcome to select any available space. Once you submit your room selection, changes are not permitted and your selected space will be your assignment for the 2023-2024 academic year. If individuals/groups do not find a space they wish to select, they can leave the online room selection without selecting a space and participate in future processes without penalty.
