If you are a resident and have not made a decision as to who your roommate will be, the Department of Housing and Residence Life is proud to announce a new tool for you: UNF's Roommate Search System! This opt-in system is designed to allow those residents who are interested in self-selecting their roommate for upcoming terms. The system is gender and classification-specific, so you will only be sharing your information with prospective roommates who will also be living on campus, not the entire residential population. Participants will complete the Roommate Search System questionnaire, which will gather the following information:
Personal Information: name, hometown, classification, phone number, housing area preferences, Facebook account
Education Information: school, major, minor
Personal Habits: cleanliness, television use, favorite shows, music use, favorite genres
Sleep Habits/Schedule: time to bed, tv use/radio use, wake up time, sleeping sensitivity
Study Habits: study freqency, study location, tv use/radio use
Social Habits: tobacco use, alcohol use
Written: What you expect from a roommate
Get started by clicking on the "Roommate Search System" link. Read through the terms and conditions of using the system, and then select the appropriate button at the bottom of the page. Once you have accepted the terms and conditions, you can create your Roommate Search Profile. Then you are able to start searching through other residents' profiles to find prospective roommate(s). You can then message users you find to see what similarities you have, discuss what items you each want to bring to campus, and which room type you both prefer. Add your best matches to your "Prospective Roommate List," and then officially request your roommate through the appropriate process below.
Participating Summer B 2013 Residents can submit their roommate preference on their Summer B Housing Contract. If you have already submitted a Housing Contract before identifying a roommate, you can list your identified roommate on a Summer B Housing and Residence Life Preference and Interest Form which will become available on April 1, 2013. Note: only mutual roommate requests will be honored.
Participating Fall 2013/Spring 2014 First-Year Residents will submit a Housing and Residence Life Preference and Interest Form. This form will allow identified roommates to list each other on the form and submit the form electronically. The form will become available online on April 1, 2013. Note: only mutual roommate requests will be honored.
If you have any questions, please contact the Department of Housing and Residence Life.
