Next, students who are not assigned to living-learning communities are assigned to remaining spaces, using a random process. Roommates are chosen based on indicators on the housing application.

  1. Students will log onto the Self Service website using their Elon email username and password. Choose Applications on the top menu, then First-Year Housing Application. Transfers and readmitted students complete the Transfer/Readmit Application.
  2. Students will complete the questions on the housing application.
  3. Students will be able to apply for a living learning community, if interested.

  5. Students will indicate a roommate preference, if desired. After completing the housing application, students can match with a roommate by choosing Room Selection from the top menu, then Roommates/Suitemates. Students will then search for a roommate.
