Room Selection

Room Selection Update:We have now hit standby status for on campus housing. Please visit our Standby Status page for more information.

Incoming residents will be able to log onto the housing student portal via their Auburn credentials to select their bed space for the upcoming academic year. Access to the housing student portal will be granted via a timeslot. Your timeslot to select your space for the 2020-2021 academic year will be sent to your Auburn email account. Once in the portal, click on “Apply for Housing” and choose the appropriate term to relaunch your new applicant application.

The deadline to match with a roommate is before you start room selection. Once you start room selection you will be unable to match with a roommate. This is due to the fact that if you match with a roommate after you start room selection you will be unable to pull them into a room with you. We recommend matching with a roommate before your room selection time slot.

Once your timeslot opens, you will have access to the room selection portal until it closes on April 24th. In order to reserve your space, you will need to click “Save and Continue.” You will need to confirm your room selection by paying a $250 non-refundable confirmation prepayment. This payment serves as credit for your fall rental rate. The deadline to pay this fee and/or cancel your housing is May 1. If you fail to select a room by the time the portal closes you will be manually assigned as space is available.

Additionally, for roommate pairings, either roommate will be eligible to make an assignment for the pair. In order to assign both residents, you must add both rooms to your cart and select both bed spaces.

Once you have selected a bed space, you can move rooms until the room selection portal closes on April 24th.
