When you live on campus at Oregon State, you're surrounded by fellow Beavs who can support you and encourage your success. Here are some tips to help you understand and navigate the roommate matching process.
For new students applying for housing in the spring of 2023 for fall term 2023 move-in, Oregon State is using an online roommate matching process that's integrated into our housing application. Filling out the online questionnaires in parts one and three of the housing application will help you find potential roommates in the system if you want to choose your own roommate, or will help our staff match you if you do not choose your own roommate.
Once you've completed your profile information in the housing application, you can search for potential roommates. You can connect with students the system identifies as a potential match, or search on your own.
If you have any questions as you go through this process, please contact us.
We understand the process of looking for a roommate can be challenging, and even a little uncomfortable. We encourage you to embrace the process as an exciting step in your journey to college life. A few tips:
The roommate matching process remains open for multiple weeks, and every day more new Beavs complete their online questionnaires and join the pool of potential roommates. If you don't find a good fit the first time you search, check back in a week and search again. Take your time to find someone who is a good match for you.
If you want to be in Cauthorn Hall, and your potential roommate wants to be in Sackett Hall, that will eventually be a problem. Also, talk through the Living-Learning Communities and Special Interest Communities you are interested in with potential roommates. Make sure you are interested in the same communities and that the answers in your respective housing applications reflect those choices.
You've found the perfect match. Great! You need to confirm your roommate or roommates by forming a roommate group in the housing application to ensure you are connected in the assignments process.
