Room Assignments

Current students can request up to three roommates. Request friends or find a roommate through one of our roommate matching services.

Getting Your Preferred Roommate

You can request up to three roommates. You and your roommate must request each other, select the same community and complete the housing interest form by the deadline.  

Find a Roommate

Find a roommate safely through our secure, password-protected Facebok app, RoomSync

How to Get on RoomSync

  1. Go to the roommate preferences page of the housing application on Self Service Carolina to access RoomSync.
  2. Click the link noted within the application.

Please note: You will not be able to use the RoomSync app until 24 hours after you begin your Housing application.

Find a roommate match through University Housing Roommate Matching. The link to roommate matching is available on Self Service Carolina.

You'll complete a brief questionnaire, then browse through profiles listed by other students. The matching is up to you! University Housing does not look through profiles to match students with similar interests.

Learning Communities Assignments

Each learning community you request will review your housing interest form. We consider several factors to determine if you will be a good fit:

  • Involvement in the community in previous years.
  • Willingness to act as a mentor for first year students in the community.
  • Residence hall or building type preference.
  • Standing at USC.


Check Your Assignment

After room assignments are made, you can check yours on Self Service Carolina. You'll receive an email when assignments are ready.

The assignment will include your residence hall, room number and roommates or suitemates.

Contacting Your Roommate
You can send your roommate a message through VIP or email them at their university email address, provided with your assignment.

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
