 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.
  • As with last year’s process, groups will select on separate days from students choosing as an individual. This will minimize the chances of groups being broken up due to lack of fully vacant apartments. A portion of space will be reserved for groups and individuals so that choosing with a group or as an individual will not reduce your chance of getting into a specific building.
  • 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 2017 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.
