Frequently Asked Questions

What is Room Selection?

Room Selection gives you the opportunity to select a room for the 2023-24 academic year. Room types/options are based on availability.

How do I participate in Room Selection?

You will be given a time slot that will be used to select your room via the online application. This will be part of the application which you have already completed, accessible via the myUK portal and Campus Housing application.

Will I be participating in Room Selection?

Yes, you will participate in Room Selection if you have a completed housing application. In order for you to have a housing assignment, you must select your room through the Room Selection process.

When will I participate in Room Selection?

Based on when you were admitted to the university and when you completed your housing application, you will be sent an email notifying you of the day and time you will participate in Room Selection.

We strongly encourage you to select your space as soon as your Room Selection window opens, so that you may have optimal choices when selecting your room.

What if I don’t have a confirmed roommate?

If you do not have a confirmed roommate, others without a roommate will be able to see you in your room space. They can also view the profile information you submitted as part of your application, if you have chosen to display this information. This is how other students can tell if you might have some common interests and would make a good roommate match.

I’m in an LLP. Will my roommate also be in the LLP?

All LLP students are required to live with students in their same LLP.

What does "hidden" mean?

When viewing students whose names appear within a bed space, you can hover your mouse over each student's name to find out more information about them. If they have chosen not to make their information public, the term “hidden” will appear when you hover your mouse over their name.
