  • February 12th - 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 12th. 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 successcenter@rowan.edu or (856) 256-4259.
  • February 12th – 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.

 Important Notes - Read Carefully:

  • Failure to select on the day you are assigned to select your room 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.
  • Students who are currently studying aboard 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 2018 unfortunately are not permitted to participate in the room selection process. They will select their housing assignment via an online process at the end of June.
  • During the month of February room selection information sessions will be provided and bulletin boards will be created by Residential Learning and University Housing. Dates will be announced in the upcoming weeks so make sure you keep a look out for more information! These sessions are a great opportunity to see firsthand how to navigate the process to successfully select your room, choose your roommates etc.
  • It is imperative that each student checks their Rowan email daily. This will be our primary means of communication for the room selection process.
  • Web tutorials will be available for your viewing at sites.rowan.edu/housing as each phase of the room selection process unfolds.
