The Office of Residential Living, uses an online program called CHARMS (Campus Housing Roommate Matching System) which allows students the opportunity to select their own roommate if they so choose. You are not required to participate in this program. If you prefer, we will match you with a roommate based on your answers to the questions on the Living Preference Questionnaire.
All students who will live on campus are required to complete a Living Preference Questionnaire within their Housing Application in Hoya Housing. This questionnaire will be used either by CHARMS' participants or by the Office of Residential Living to match roommates.
Students who wish to participate in CHARMS will have a certain timeframe to select a roommate. After that date, the Office of Residential Living will make roommate pairings based on your answers to the questions on the Living Preference Questionnaire.
All room assignments will be made by the Office of Residential Living. You will be notified of your room assignment in early August.
