Choose your roommates, suite/apartment-mates! Review the Roommate Selection Guide Set up your Roommate Group (if you have one) prior to the earliest lottery in which your group can participate. Make sure everyone in your group has mutually requested each other so that you have a fully matched group. Make sure you all agree on a plan! Which building, who goes in which room type within the suite, etc. Remember, anyone you confirm as a mutual roommate can pull you in to a room! Decide where you want to live If you are not choosing your Same Room… Plan ahead for at least a 1 st, 2 nd and 3 rd choice! For example: 1 st choice: North Avenue Suite Single If they are all taken... Do I try for a North Ave Suite Double or a Grand Mesa Single? 2 nd choice: Grand Mesa Single What if they are all taken as well? 3 rd choice: Monument Double 11 22
You cannot pull roommates into your room or suite during the Same Room Process because that would take away another residents right to have first dibs on their room. If you choose to select your Spring assignment for the upcoming academic year during the Same Room Lottery you cannot have roommate requests. You will get an error:
If you choose to select a space within your Spring suite or apartment for the upcoming academic year during the Same Suite/Apartment Lottery... Be aware of your roommate requests. You cannot have more roommate requests than the total available spaces in your suite or apartment. For example, if you are in an 8-person Grand Mesa suite and only 6 spaces are available after the same room lottery, you plus your roommates cannot equal more than 6 in order to select your suite. However, you can have less than 6. You do not have to fill every bed. Also, if you have a friend in your roommate group who is assigned before you select, that roommate will not be counted in your total.
If you choose to select a new room, suite or apartment for the upcoming academic year during one of the New Room Lotteries... Be aware of your roommate requests. You plus your roommates cannot be greater than the total available spaces in the room, suite or apartment that you would like to select. Examples: You will not be shown any Tolman double rooms if you have more than one roommate request. You will not be shown any Monument suites if you have more than three roommate requests. If, after the previous lotteries, there are four (or less) beds left in any Grand Mesa suite you wont be able to see any spaces in Grand Mesa if you plus your roommates is greater than four.
