The Freedom to Pick Your Roommate!

You can decide who you’re going to live with! Make your selection by our priority deadline of April 30th.

HAVE A FRIEND IN MIND? List their name and Jag# as your roommate request when submitting your housing contract.

WANT TO MEET SOMEONE NEW? Use USA’s unique roommate matching program, Please Don’t Snore (PDS). Beginning in February, monitor your JagMail for PDS log-in information. Create your PDS profile and browse other student profiles to find a potential match. Recommended matches will also be provided for you to explore. The matching period starts on April 1 and continues through April 30, but there’s no need to wait until April to begin using PDS. Although roommate matching is actually confirmed during this time, use February and March to browse potential roommates and make new friends – long before you ever get to campus!

NO ROOMMATE PREFERENCE? Create your PDS profile anyway! Roommate assignments will be made based on the date your contract was received, room type/ building preferences, and PDS profile (if applicable).

Only mutual requests will be considered. Space is limited - submit your contract and request as soon as possible. We will make every effort to accommodate your request; however, roommate requests cannot be guaranteed. After the priority deadline (April 30th) it may not be possible to be placed together.

When we make your assignment, your Room Preferences will guide us. However, your assignment may be anywhere your roommate request can be honored – even if you didn't preference that location.

MORE RESOURCES: Even though you and a potential roommate are similar in some ways, you may not see eye to eye on other key issues. We encourage you to review the "Roommate Relationships" page to learn about additional discussion points that may help you and the other student prior to move-in. We also encourage you to complete the "Roommate Agreement" prior to, or shortly after moving-in. Housing & Dining staff members are available to assist you with this process upon move-in.


Returning Student Roommate Requests
As a returning student you will select your own room during the Returning Student Room Registration process. During this process you will also have the option of selecting your own roommate(s) by using the “Roommate Code” function.
