Room Selection Preparation Checklist

This page will help you collect information you will need during the room selection process. We recommend you print this page or otherwise have this information handy before you log in to the myKU portal to choose your room space.

Note: This page is for residence halls and apartments. Scholarship halls have an in-hall selection process and a scholarship hall dining plan.

Room Selection Time

Confirm your room selection time: _______________ and date: _______________

You can find your room selection time on the room selection schedule page.

Find your group number and set your roommate PIN (video).

Choose Your Community

Think about which housing option best fits your priorities, such as location, privacy, special interests, and affordability. Identify a ranked list of choices in case your first choice is no longer available at your room selection time.

Dining Plan

KU dining plan is required for a residence hall contract. Dining plans are optional for apartments.

☐ Rock Chalk All Access
☐ Jayhawk Residential Unlimited
☐ Crimson Flex
☐ Blue Flex
☐ $425 Plan

Roommate Matching

If you have at least one predetermined roommate in mind, you will need the information below ready before you begin room selection. All roommates need to have applied and signed the contract at least 24 hours before selection. The roommate with the earliest selection time should choose the space for the group.

If you do not have a predetermined roommate in mind yet but would like one, you may complete a questionnaire regarding potential roommate preferences as part of room selection. 

You do not have to choose a roommate - just choose a space and another Jayhawk will choose the remaining space for a "potluck" or "random" roommate process. Later, once you've both chosen the same space, you can find out that person's contact information in the myKU portal. 

See the roommate matching page for helpful instructions and video tutorials.

☐ Potluck (most common)
☐ Predetermined Roommate
☐ 1-Person Room (no roommates)

For predetermined roommates, make sure to have the correctly spelled, legal name for each person, along with the following required information:

Selection Confirmation

Once you’ve selected your space, you’ll receive an email confirmation. Use the myKU portal to view details related to your housing selection and to see roommates’ names and contact information. If you pulled in roommates, each of them will also receive a confirmation email.
