Roommate Matching

Incoming, First-Year, and Transfer Students (Start date Fall 2023)

  1. Use My College Roomie to find a roommate: My College Roomie is an online platform that allows you to find the most compatible roommate for you! Think of it like match.com, but for a college roomie!

    Twenty-four hours after you submit your online housing agreement, an invitation will be sent to your NDSU email address, asking you to create a profile in My College Roomie. (Please note: Your ability to log into MCR will not be active until the invitation email is sent.) 

    The process is simple. You log in, create a profile, and complete a questionnaire. After that, you will be able to look at other profiles and see your percentage of compatibility. For example, maybe you will be 78% compatible with Jill, 83% compatible with Jane, and 96% compatible with Joy. At that point, you can send messages to any or all of your matches to connect further or to request someone as your roommate! 

    Roommates must be officially matched-up in My College Roomie by March 10, 2023. Remember, being "friends" is not the same as being matched roommates. One of you must request the other as a roommate, and that person must accept the request.

  2. Use My College Roomie to match up with someone you know: If you know whom you want to room with, MCR is also NDSU's official way to match up in our system. Roommates must be officially matched-up in My College Roomie by March 10, 2023. Remember, being "friends" is not the same as being matched roommates. One of you must request the other as a roommate, and that person must accept the request.

  3. LGBTQ+ Roommate Matching: Residence Life is committed to providing a safe and inclusive environment for all students who live on campus. The LGBTQ+ Roommate Matching process has been established for students who identify as LGBTQ+ and for those who are allies. 
     
  4. Room assignment by Residence Life: Are you cool with whoever ends up in your room? No problem! Just sit back and relax. Residence Life will pair you with a roommate and you will be notified on Campus Connection after an assignment has been made. 

Apartments

NDSU Residence Life does not automatically assign roommates to apartment tenants, as is done in the residence halls. Instead, we provide MyCollegeRoomie to help you determine your best fit!
