There are two general scenarios:
Scenario #1: You are in a roommate-restricted RAP.
There are a few RAPs that require students to room with another student in the same RAP:
All Honors RAPs
Bio Pioneers RAP
Isenberg School of Management Fellows RAPs
Emerging Scholars RAP
Performing & Visual Arts Majors RAP
Veterinary & Animal Science Majors RAP
If you are in one of these RAPs, you may request to room with someone in your RAP. In order to see who is in your RAP, log back into your RAP log-in page and click “see others in my RAP.” If you wish to live with one of these students as your roommate, you must mutually request each other on your Housing Preference Application using your full name or Student ID #.
If you don’t request a specific roommate, housing will assign you a roommate based on your housing profile.
Scenario #2: You are in a RAP that does not have a roommate restriction (any RAP NOT listed above).
It is possible to choose your roommate in any of these three cases:
You want to room with someone in your RAP (In order to see who is in your RAP, log back into your RAP log-in page and click “see others in my RAP”) OR
You want to room with someone in a different RAP that is located in the same residence hall as yours OR
You want to room with someone not joining a RAP
In any of these cases, follow this procedure: On your Housing Preference Application, both students must request each other. You can enter their full name or Student ID
It is NOT possible to live with someone that is in a RAP that is located in a different residence hall.
