How does HRE assign rooms?
As students choose to attend DU, they complete their housing application and create a housing profile that allows them to search for and select a roommate and share their preferences for an ideal living scenario.
Students are then required to complete a survey that asks them to share their attitudes about cleanliness, noise preferences, sleep habits, daily routines, thoughts on guests spending the night, and feelings about sharing items within the room. HRE then attempts to match you with a compatible roommate based on these student responses.
As hard as we try, we know that every match won't be perfect! In these cases, any resident can complete a room change request beginning the third week of the fall quarter for any reason. Room changes are approved based on the availability of the desired room change and are made on a first-come, first-serve basis. Students can move to another open space on their floor, in their building, or in a different building.
How do I check my housing assignment?
Since housing assignment notifications are official University communication, they are sent to your email@example.com email address. You can also view your housing assignment on your Housing Portal by following these steps:
- Log into the Housing Portal
- Click Application
- Click the Corresponding Academic Year.
- Save and Continue
- Click Application Status (in the upper right corner)
Your housing assignment and the profile of your roommate (if applicable) will be at the bottom of the screen.
When will I know my housing assignment?
It's important to mention that housing assignments for incoming first-year and transfer students beginning fall of 2023 will not be available on the Housing Portal until the end of July 2023. Continuing & graduate students will participate in our Room Selection Process by selecting their housing assignment for the 2023-2024 academic year.
Please expect to have a roommate upon your arrival in September! We encourage you to contact your roommate before your arrival on campus to get acquainted and discuss the details of setting up your room.
Is there a way to request a housing accommodation?
Students requesting housing accommodation for a disability or medical condition should do so through the Disability Services Program (DSP). You can learn more about how to do that by visiting Accommodations for Students!
