New Student Information

New students will apply for housing, request roommates and prepare for housing selection during the months of May, June and July.  Students will receive emails with information about the upcoming processes and deadlines and can review detailed information on this website.

My College Roomie

UConn has partnered with My College Roomie to offer a roommate matching tool for incoming students.  Students can create a profile and search for other students to identify a roommate with similar living preferences.  Students can request someone they already have in mind or can spend the next few months building their profile and contacting other students to find their ideal match.

Mission Statement

  • Residential Life is committed to working with students and campus colleagues to create safe and inclusive educational living communities that foster students’ academic, social, cultural, and personal growth.  

Resident Communication

  • Students can expect to receive an average of 25-30 total emails from Residential Life during the year.  These email notifications include: Housing application deadlines and reminders, Cancellation deadlines and reminders, Room change and housing selection process information, Arrival and departure information each semester.  Students that choose to participate in a specific process, or who identify with a particular community, could receive additional emails pertaining to that process or population. It is the expectation of Residential Life that students are checking their email regularly.
