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.

Students will receive a Welcome Email and access information from MCR within 24 hours of submitting their complete housing application. 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.

Roommate Groups

Find out more about how to form roommate groups and accept roommate requests.

Incoming freshmen should confirm their roommate, if they select one, by 5 p.m. CDT on Wednesday, April 27.

A confirmed roommate group 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, any student in the roommate group 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.
