Room Assignments

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

Getting Your Preferred Roommate

You can request one roommate. 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 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.
