Room Assignments

Students receive their room assignment through different processes depending whether they are a new student or continuing resident.

  • Continuing Students - Continuing students apply for housing for the next academic year during the spring semester. Detailed information about the application and room selection process, including important dates and deadlines is sent to every student via their Rowan University email account. More information on this process can be found on the Continuing Student Room Selection Process tab.
  • Transfer Students - Transfer students who apply by May 1st will be able to select their own room through the online MyHousing system during the month of June. Transfer students should begin to monitor their Rowan email account for information about this process once they have completed their application.  Transfer students who apply later or do not select a space during this process will be assigned by staff in the Office of Residential Learning and University Housing and receive a conformation message in the Rowan University email. 
  • Freshmen - New freshmen should apply for housing as soon as possible after submitting their admissions deposit, but are strongly encouraged to apply by May 1st. Freshmen will have the opportunity to self-match with another incoming freshman and additional information about freshman room selection will be available soon and details will be sent to the student's Rowan University email account.

Due to the Covid-19 pandeminc, we have adjusted some timelines and processes:

  • The roommate matching deadline has been extended to June 7th @ 11:59pm.
  • There will not be a Transfer Room Selection Process.  Transfer studetnts will be assigned by thr RLUH staff and notified of their assignments mid-July.

Disability Accommodations

Students requiring disability related accommodations affecting their housing must apply and submit supporting documentation to the Academic Success Center - Office of Disability Resources. Failure to submit documentation in a timely manner may limit the ability of the University to reserve housing space meeting their needs. Questions should be directed to the Academic Success Center at 856-256-4259 or

E-Mail Communications Policy 

All communications regarding the housing assignments and room selection process will be sent to the student’s Rowan University e-mail address. It is the student’s responsibility to check this e-mail account regularly. Students are responsible for messages sent to this account including meeting deadlines and taking actions they are expected to take related to their housing.
