The Process

Step 1: Create Your Profile

Fill out some basic information about yourself, as well as your housing and roommate preferences. This data will be used to help you find the best available roommate. Even if you do not plan to select a roommate, this data can still be used by the Office of Residence Life to help you find the best room and make the best available roommate match.

While you are at it, make sure that your Road to Xavier profile is as complete as possible. Some of this information is used by the room selection system and students viewing your profile can use this information to learn more about you.

Step 2: Find Your Roommate

Once you have completed your profile you can look at all of the students who match your various preferences. Also during this step you can view students who match you best, match your major, or search for specific people. After your search you can view other students' profiles and invite them to be your roommate. What if I don't want to select a roommate?

Step 3: Your Roommates

When you find someone online who you want to live with, you can invite them to be your roommate. Likewise, someone else can invite you to be their roommate. Once an invite is accepted, a roommate group is formed. You can only be a member of one roommate group. Please note that for general selection roommate groups will be limited to 2 or 3. Roommate groups of 3 and 4 will be permitted for triples and quads, respectively. There are also a small number of suites for honors students that can hold 6 students.

Step 4: Wait

The Office of Residence Life will hand-assign all students based on roommate and building preferences, as well as the housing questionnaire you have answered.  Housing assignments will be available for viewing online starting the first week of July.
