Room Assignment Information

Online Room Selection Tutorials

Online Room Selection is the system that students use to self-select their housing assignments for the following semester. This system is on SPIRE and is very similar to the system that students use to select their classes. Like class selection, this is a live process which allows students to search and see what is available at that exact moment. One of the advantages to using this system is that students are able to select their own assignments and know where they will be living as soon as they select.

The video tutorials posted below take you step-by-step through the online room selection process in SPIRE. Each step in the process has been posted as a separate video, and the transcript for each has been posted as well. You may click below to view only the step you need, or view all steps to get a better understanding of the entire process.
