Room Selection

What is Room Selection?

Room Selection is the process which gives you, the student, the ability to choose exactly which room you will live in.

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 Living on Campus 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 own 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 emailed a timeslot stating which day and time you will participate in Room Selection. For those that are in Early Action Track, you will receive your timeslot by April 14th. For those that are in the Regular Decision Track, you will receive your timeslot by May 20th. We strongly encourage that you select your room space as close as to when your time slot opened so you can have optimal choices when selecting your room.  Room Selection will close on July 15th, so be sure to select your room before then.

All Campus Housing residents will receive a confirmation of the room they selected on June 30th and then again on August 1st.  Again, in order for you to have a housing assignment, you must select your own room through the Room Selection process.”

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 see the profile information you submitted as part of your application, if you have chosen to display this information. This is how they can tell if they you might have some common interests and be good roommates.

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 name appears within a bed space, you can hover your mouse to find out more information about that person. If they have chosen not to make their information public, the term “hidden” will appear when you hover your mouse over their name.

What if I have questions?

If you have any questions throughout the application process, including Room Selection, please call us at (859) 257-1866 or email us at ukhousing@uky.edu.
