Select Your Room


Find your r oom and your roommate  
To find your room location and the name of your roommate in the Housing Portal (MyHousing), click on Application Status (upper right corner) or go to the Complete Application tab and scroll to the bottom. You can then contact your future roommate; this may be a message via MyHousing.

Room selection process 

It is the time of year when it becomes easier to better meet a student’s needs through a manual assignment process. About two-thirds of our incoming residence hall population has been able to use the housing portal and select their own room from November through April. While there are plenty of bed spaces to accommodate your housing needs, we can more effectively meet your individual needs through a manual assignment process. This allows the assignments team to process cancellations and manage vacancies to ensure preferences are met on a first-come, first-served basis. 

The room change request process will remain open until the end of New Student Orientation, and students will continue to be able to make specific requests for building and roommate preferences.  Please see the information below regarding making a room change request.

Room change requests

Before June 30, you can ask to change your assigned room.

To request a room change, send an email from your MIX account to WVU-Assign@mail.wvu.edu .

  • Your request must include your name, preferred hall, room type preferred and name of requested roommate.
  • You can request a specific roommate, but the likelihood of actually getting that roommate is low because a completely vacant room must be available to which both of you can be assigned.

If you change your mind and want to be removed from the room-change list, you must send another email to WVU-Assign@mail.wvu.edu.  Please keep in mind that once you are reassigned, your previous assignment will no longer be available. 

If you made a room change request, please be sure to check MyHousing often for updated room assignments.
