Room Selection FAQ


All students with a completed 2018-2019 Residence Life & Dining Services contract.


All students will be able to select their own rooms in the residence halls. Click here to view which Specialty Floors and FIGs belong to each hall. 


The room selection process will run from Tuesday, May 29, 2018 through Monday, July 16, 2018. Students who submit their contracts after this date will have their room assignment automatically allocated by RLDS.


Students will be able to select their rooms by logging back into the online housing portal and completing the room selection page (don’t worry, this page does not open until you complete your contract and are assigned a room selection timeslot by RLDS).


This gives students more autonomy to select their rooms and roommates for the upcoming academic year.


  • After you complete your 2018-2019 RLDS contract, you will become eligible to select your own room for the upcoming academic year; however, you will not be able to select your room until you receive a timeslot from RLDS. Room selection timelines and available spaces are determined by the preferences you select on your contract, as well as the date you completed your contract. (see below for a complete list of timelines).

  • You will receive an email roughly one week before your assigned timeline with more detailed information regarding the room selection process. Please remember that all communications will go directly to your UW email address, so please be checking that account this summer. If you are having trouble accessing your UW email, please go to WyoWeb and click on "Obtain Username and Initial Password" or "Password Reset Portal" or you can contact UW IT Client Support Help Desk.

  • Please remember that, because room space availability is also determined by RLDS contract preferences, a late room selection timeslot does not mean you cannot still get the room space you want! Students will only see floors and rooms they are eligible for and/or are part of communities they request on their contracts.
