To file for commuter status, please complete the Mandatory Housing Waiver form by following the below steps. Registration holds will be enforced for students who do not file for commuter status or apply for University housing by February 25th! Holds will prevent enrollment in Fall classes.


Directions to complete the Mandatory Housing Waiver Form for Fall 2019

Upon successful completion of the form, you will receive a confirmation email to your Rowan email address

  • February 25th - Students who are registered for a disability related housing accommodation or will be registering with the Academic Success Center and Disability Resources Office need to ensure they have submitted their paperwork no later than February 25th. Failure to meet this deadline may limit the ability of the University to reserve housing space meeting your needs. For more information on this process please contact or (856) 256-4259.
  • February 25th – To facilitate roommate matches during the room selection process, certain information from the application, as well as the room selection made, will be visible to other students. To keep your information private contact the Dean of Students’ office at 856-256-4283 prior to February 25th.
  • February 27th – March 10th @ 11:59pm - Students will be instructed to complete their roommate selections via MyHousing between February 27th and March 10th at 11:59pm. No roommate matches or changes can be made after March 10th at 11:59pm. Please remember students must mutually match each other in order to go through room selection together.  Keep in mind that roommate matches are not guaranteed - many things effect placement such as participation in a Learning Community, and need for affordable housing. 


Gender inclusive housing options are available!

Please make sure you check out for more information on gender inclusive housing!


Got a large group of people?  We got you covered!!

A new addition to our room selection process is the 8-person/6-person selection day.  Only fully matched groups of 8 as well as fully matched groups of 6 will have the opportunity to select 8 person and 6 person apartments (respectively) in Nexus Properties.  If your group chooses to not select on this date, or if no apartments are left to accommodate your group, you and your group members will receive a new date/time to select housing during the senior, junior, sophomore rounds (as appropriate) based on the makeup of your group.


Studying abroad Spring Semester??  NO PROBLEM!!

Students who are currently studying abroad are able to participate in the room selection process and will participate the same way as a current student living on campus.


**New incoming Transfer students admitted for Fall 2019 unfortunately are not permitted to participate in the room selection process. They will select their housing assignment via an online process in June.**

For additional information regarding the room selection process, please go to:  All updates regarding the 2019-2020 room selection process will be updated on the Residential Learning and University Housing website.

We hope that this process proves successful for you. Please direct any questions you may have about this process to
