Step 1: Creating Roommate Groups, if desired If you are selecting an apartment with friends you must create a roommate group prior to the start of your room selection time block in the Roommate Management tab. This tab will be live for you to create and/or edit once you have your room selection time block. The group leader should be the individual with the first/earliest time block for the group. The group leader is identified by the yellow star next to their name. To create a roommate group each apartment mate will need to provide the group leader with their roommate passcode which is located in the upper right corner of your housing home screen. Email notifications will be sent to all members of a group any time the group is created or changed.

Does an apartment mate in a roommate group need to do anything? If you created a roommate group - once an apartment has been selected all the apartment mates will receive an email notification of the room selection. Providing your roommate passcode to another student commits you to the apartment selected so be sure before sharing your roommate passcode.

Helpful Tips If used - form your roommate group well before your time block begins. This saves time when your time block begins. When forming or editing a roommate group all members of the group with receive email notification so please be sure your group is aware of any changes you are making.
