New Transfer and Graduate Students


Welcome, New Students!

The Residential Learning and University Housing office would like to congratulate you on your decision to join the Rowan University community. Students transferring or seeking a graduate degree at Rowan University have the opportunity to live in campus housing. Those who wish to live in campus housing will need to fill out the housing application in order to move forward with getting a housing assignment.  

Room Selection takes place in the spring and summer for the Fall Semester admits only. Students will receive an email indicating their timeslot at least 2 days prior to their selection date. Failure to select a room on the day you are assigned will result in you selecting a room during a makeup round which is scheduled to take place after all rounds of room selection are completed if space permits. If all rooms have been assigned and you are not able to participate in the makeup day, you will remain on the housing waitlist and will be provided a housing assignment over the summer.


Do I have to live in campus housing? 

Rowan University has a mandatory housing policy for students in their first or second year at the institution, requiring students to live in campus housing. However, there are criteria that excuse transfer students from this policy. For example: if a student is over 21 years old, or will be transferring in more than 58+ credits. For more information on the mandatory housing policy, please click here

Where will I live on campus? 

Rooms may be single or double occupancy within 4, 6, or 8-person apartments. All buildings are co-ed and offer single-gender suites/apartments, and the option of Gender Inclusive Housing as well. All spaces are fully furnished with a bed, dresser, desk, and closet or wardrobe space for each student. Most rooms are carpeted. Non-carpeted rooms may be requested on a space-available basis. Air-conditioning is standard in all apartments except Triad. Internet, as well as cable services, are included.

Students with medical needs that necessitate housing accommodation will need to work with the Academic Success Center. Their office can be reached at: | (856) 256-4259.


How do I pick a roommate?

Please note the Roommate Matching Process is for Fall Semester admits. 

Incoming Transfer or Graduate students are able to mutually match with other students as long as: 

  • Both are incoming students (cannot be a current student or incoming first-year undergraduate student)
  • Both students have completed the housing application
  • Requests are made and accepted before the roommate matching deadline 

Beyond this deadline, students are unable to make roommate requests. While we work to accommodate every match possible, please keep in mind that roommate matches are NOT GUARANTEED by the University.  

Steps Students Should Follow To Mutually Select Roommate(s):

  • Log into 
  • Click on “Room Selection” 
  • Click on “Roommates/Suitemates” 
  • Select “Fall 202X” from the drop-down
  • Search for desired roommate 
  • Remember your roommate request(s) must verify/accept the request via MyHousing for the group to be fully matched.
