Housing Application FAQs
Question: If I am searching for a roommate(s) and I am entering all of their information correctly, why are they not showing up in the search?
Answer: This is most likely because your roommate(s) has not filled out the application yet; you can only search for and see other students who have completed the housing application for that term.
Question: If I un-click the “participate in web search for roommates” checkbox does this mean I can’t find people I want to live with?
Answer: Yes it does. We encourage students to leave this box checked before proceeding to the next step in the application as they will not be able to search for roommates, nor will potential roommates be able to search for them. This does not mean the student will not have a roommate however, it just means the student has chosen not to participate in this part of the process. Please note you cannot return to this page in the application once it is complete, so if you have changed your mind about participating in the web search for roommates, please call the Residence Life office (970.943.2101) during regular business hours for assistance.
