-                If some of the occupants do not wish to retain, but over 50% still do, you must find new roommates to fill the remaining spaces.

-                Double rooms require both students in order to retain the room. 

-                You cannot retain a room if you do not have the total number of persons to fill the room or apartment.

Creating a Retention Roommate Group:

-         Log into the housing application at

-          Select Roommate Group Selection

-          1 CURRENT resident from the room that the group wishes to retain must create a group name and password. 

-           The group name must be the hall and room assignment that you wish to retain. (If you wish to retain Walsh 304, your group name must be Walsh 304)

-          Give the group name and password to desired group members.  The number of members in your group must match the number of spaces in the room/suite you wish to retain. 

-          If all of the members of your group do not have the same graduation year, all members with the same graduation year as the group leader should join the group.  All other members must email with the group name and password requesting to be added to the group.

-          Group leader must check to make sure ALL of the correct group members are in the group and verify the group; if the group is not verified, it is not yet considered an actual group and will not be eligible for Room Retention.

-          If you want to retain a single, create a group of 1 and verify it.
