My College Roomie (MCR) is a tool to help incoming residents make friends and find a compatible roommate, so they can expect a great first-year college experience. Incoming freshmen can select one roommate, if they choose. Students who do not select a roommate will still have one or more through either staff assignment or room selection.

Within MCR, students can create a profile; complete a compatibility questionnaire; view potential roommate matches; and reach out to communicate with matches. MCR is a tool for students; HRC staff do not use profiles or questionnaires to match students when making room assignments. Admitted students who have completed their housing applications will have access to MCR beginning on February 1, 2023. Admitted freshmen have until May 8 to complete a roommate pair.

Roommate Pairs

Find out more about how to form roommate pairs and accept roommate requests.
A confirmed roommate pair created in the myHousing portal will identify the student who initiated the group as the “leader,” however, this isn’t relevant for online room selection. In online room selection, either student in the roommate pair can select a room online, dependent on their individual room selection date/time.

Participating in online room selection does not guarantee your choice of a specific residence hall, room type or roommate. For students who applied for housing after Feb. 1, HRC staff consider building preferences as listed on the application and prioritize assigning roommates together, as space permits. However, we cannot guarantee any building, room type or roommate.
