The Office of Student Affairs is proud to offer RoomSync as our preferred roommate matching software to help new students find roommates.
Students are not required to use RoomSync, but many find it a helpful tool.
By using a passcode-protected app, we work closely with RoomSync to provide residents with the unique opportunity to interact with other students while safely finding future roommates. Students can only use the RoomSync app after obtaining a special passcode from our office. This passcode will be emailed to students after they pay their Enrollment Deposit to the University.
Students can also integrate their social media profiles, allowing RoomSync to capture a broader representation of their tastes, preferences, and lifestyle. This integration also furthers a very unique component of self-selection: Personality. It is impossible to decipher a person’s personality from a vague paper questionnaire. RoomSync already overcomes this challenge by using a variety of information to capture a person’s true identity and offer a deeper picture of who the student is and allow better roommate matching.
By giving students the ability to select their roommates, we strive to provide a happier and more gratifying campus living experience.
If you have questions about how to use the RoomSync app, please visit the RoomSync Support page or contact the Office of Student Affairs at firstname.lastname@example.org.
NOTE: Students are NOT required to use RoomSync. It is an optional service to aid in finding a roommate. Students who have already found a roommate, prefer a random roommate, or have other preferences (for example, wanting to live with a teammate) can indicate their preferences when submitting their Official Housing Request.
