First-year students are defined as students who have earned a high school diploma or its equivalent, and have earned less than 12 semester hours of transferable college credit after high school graduation. This excludes college credits earned during high school completion through accelerated mechanisms such as IB, AICE, AP and dual enrollment classes. After matriculation to UNF, students, will continue to be defined as first-year students until they have completed two terms: Fall and Spring or Spring and Fall terms.

Residents will be able to utilize the Roommate Search System as a tool to find a compatible roommate. The Roommate Search System is currently down, but will be available shortly. The use of the Roommate Search System is optional and does not impact your assignment or your priority date. Once the Roommate Search System is up there will be an active link on this page as well as a button on the Housing and Residence Life homepage that will link you directly to the log-in page for the Roommate Search System. The log-on credentials are the same as your myWings credentials.
Complete your First-year Housing Preference Form
The Summer B 2015 First-year Housing Preference Form is due by Friday, May 1, 2015
The Fall 2015/Spring 2016 First-year Housing Preference Form is due by Friday, June 19, 2015
Please note, assignments are made on an on-going basis in order of priority date. The priority date is determined by the day in which we have a completed contract on-file. A contract is considered complete when the online contract has been submitted, the $300 prepayment has been made and we have received a completed First-Year Preference Form. Being proactive to complete all of these items in a timely manner will assist in securing a higher priority date. If no preferences are submitted, assignments will be made solely based on space availability at the time of priority date.
Where every reasonable effort is made to accommodate student preferences in consideration to priority date and space availability at that time; it is important to note NO assignment is guaranteed. This includes specific rooms, housing areas, LLC placement, room types, roommate(s), etc. Housing and Residence Life reserves the right to reassign a student at any time during the contract period for any reason, including but not limited to space availability.
Housing Invoices and Roommate Information will be mailed the week of July 1, 2015.
Those students who submit a Fall 2015/Spring 2016 Housing Contract will be able to utilize the Roommate Search System as a tool to find a compatible roommate. The use of the Roommate Search System is optional and does not impact your assignment or your priority date. The log-on credentials are the same as your myWings credentials.
The Roommate Search System will be available now until June 19, 2015.
**Please note: The Roommate Search System is a tool to assist with finding a roommate. Housing and Residence Life does NOT look at the system to make assignments. You and your desired roommate will need to request one another on your preference form. There is NO need for a password as all assignments will be manual.
Once you have identified a compatible roommate, you should submit a Summer 2015 and/or Fall 2015/Spring 2016 First-year Housing Preference Form
