Assignment Protocols

Students may request a roommate of their choice at the time of applying. Suite assignments will be prioritized for complete roommate groups (ex. Founders Hall 3 bedroom suite will be prioritized to a roommate group with 3 members, rather than 2 members). Please create your roommate groups based on the “first room type preference” selected on your housing application. You will be notified in advance if your roommate group is not approved for a multiple bedroom suite so you can adjust your roommate group accordingly.

Select a roommate (two ways)

  1. Roommate Matching: is when you know a person with whom you wish to be roommates. You will need to share your roommate codes between members of your requested roommate group. Your roommate code can be seen at the top-right corner of any screen in your Housing at CCA account.
  2. Profile Browsing: is for when you do not have a requested roommate in mind, but would like to have some autonomy in selecting a roommate for yourself. You can set search filters and message with or request potential roommates who you think will be a good fit based on their roommate matching questionnaire . All profile browsing is anonymous until a roommate invitation is sent.

Request a Roommate:

  • Go to the "roommates" tab.
  • Choose the upcoming term in the "choose a term" drop-down.
  • Select either "find someone you know" (roommate matching) or "search resident profiles".
  • Enter your roommate's roommate code, or search for a resident profile that meets your roommate expectations.
  • Select "send invitation" to initiate a roommate request.

When the person accepts your request, you will see them as part of your roommate group on the right-side column of the roommate groups page.

Note: Roommate requests must be approved by all parties. All parties must have applied and be deposited before the appropriate priority application deadline in order to be accommodated. Roommate requests submitted after your application date cannot be guaranteed.

Access and Disability Services

If you have an access or disability accommodation request please submit your request with the Access and Disability Services office as soon as possible. Starting the intake process early on will help college staff identify the best room type for you.
