Because there are a limited number of vacant rooms, and many students who have already applied for housing have assigned roommates, the roommate searching feature has been disabled.
To find the name of your roommate and your room location 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 change requests
Before June 30, you can ask to change your assigned room.
To request a roommate change, send an email from your MIX account to WVU-Assign@mail.wvu.edu
- Your request must include your name, current room assignment, WVU ID number, preferred hall, preferred room type and name
of requested roommate(s).
- 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.
