- On the requested roommate page, I tried to request a roommate, but the search results did not include my roommate or did not match any records. How can I request my roommate? Your requested roommate has to be accepted and submitted their intent to enroll in order to be located in the system. If your request meets these requirements, then check the spelling of your requested roommate's last name and verify that you have entered the email address correctly.
- I requested roommates, but it says "unconfirmed" next to my roommate's name. What does that mean? All roommate requests will say "unconfirmed" when you select the roommate and have not completed the application. If you have completed the application and your roommate request still says "unconfirmed," then your requested roommate has either not submitted an application or has not confirmed you as a requested roommate. You should contact your requested roommate to discuss why they have not confirmed the request. Unconfirmed roommates will not be assigned together.
- Who is required to pay the $250 Room Reservation Fee and Application Fee? Any new USCB student is required to pay the Room Reservation Fee and Application fee before they can complete the housing application. Any current USCB student who is applying to live in university housing for the first time is also required to pay the Room Reservation Fee and Application fee.
- Can I edit my application? Any student who has completed the housing application can make changes to some sections of the application until June 1, 2013.
