How We Assign Rooms

As students choose to attend DU, they fill out their housing applications and create a housing profile that allows them to search for and select a roommate while also recording their preferences for an ideal living scenario.

Students are then required to fill out a survey that asks them to evaluate their attitudes about cleanliness, noise preferences, sleep habits, daily routines, thoughts on guests spending the night, and feelings about sharing items within the room.

Based on the data collected, this gives HRE the best chances of matching you with a compatible roommate. And in case things don't work out, any resident during the third week of fall quarter can change rooms for any reason! Students line up on a first-come, first-serve basis and can move to another open space on their floor, in their building, or in a different building.
