The Room Selection process is done on a First Come, First Serve System. Students that are eligible to participate in the Room Selection Process may do so as long as space is available. The first phase of room selection takes place in the spring for returning residents. If a returning resident misses the deadline for the first phase, the student will be allowed to select a room the Friday at 12 p.m., following their application contract received date. Once a selection is made, it will not be changed until the open room change period.
Room selection at Georgia State University is an on-line process. After a new or returning resident completes an on-line application, pays their Room Reservation Fee, he/she will have the ability to choose the Residence Hall/Living Space where they wish to reside, if eligible. Room selection is based on eligibility and availability.
You must know the full name and campus ID of your desired roommate. All roommate requests must be mutual. If you and your desired roommate have not mutually requested each other, you will not be assigned together.
- To begin, log into MyHousing and enter your Campus ID and password.
- Select the Room Selection menu option on the navigation panel. A drop
down menu should appear. Select Roommate Selection option from the drop-down menu.

Students will be contacted in the order in which they appear on the wait list. When housing spaces become available and when the Housing staff has reached a student’s number on the Wait List, University Housing will send an email to the student’s Georgia State University email account notifying him/her of availability. University Housing will then contact the student at the telephone number(s) indicated on their housing application. Therefore, it is very important that students have an accurate phone number or we will not be able to offer a space in housing. To make changes or updates to your phone numbers go to MyHousing. Please refrain from contacting the housing office until you receive a phone call. Providing a non working or inaccurate phone contact information will result in the housing office moving the student to the end of the wait list.
- The housing offer will be for an individual space – we cannot accommodate roommate requests in the Wait List process.
- You will have 24 hours to accept or decline the space.
- Once you have been offered a space, your name will be removed from the Wait List.
** If you choose to remain active on the wait list your application will be moved to the end of the wait list.
**Canceling from the wait list at the time University Housing makes a room offer by phone, voice mail, or/and before the office sends you an email, will result in forfeiture of the room reservation fee. Student must cancel before an offer of housing is made to receive a refund of $295.
