Room Selection Frequently Asked Questions

How do I start the room selection process?

Login to the Online Housing System and click the link for "Register for Housing." If you are a current second year or older student and cannot see the Register for Housing link, please let us know so that we can help!

How do I request a roommate?

You must first create a roommate group, which can be with one or more roommates.  You'll do this using our online housing system prior to selecting a room.  You can search for potential roommates based on roommate profiles, or you can search for specific students using their UniqueID.  In order to search for a roommate, they must also have initiated a housing application online.  Once you have confirmed your roommate group, you can then select a room and assign all roommates at the same time!

Can I invite a current off-campus student to be my roommate?

Yes, as long as that student has also initiated a housing application online. 

What do I do if I have a medical need for special housing accommodations?

We work in collaboration with The Miller Center for Student Disability Services to provide reasonable accommodations in the residence hall setting. If you feel that a disability-related housing accommodation is needed, please contact The Miller Center at (513) 529-1541 or email SDS@MiamiOH.edu. You may also visit their website at www.MiamiOH.edu/SDS for more information.

How long do I have to cancel my housing contract?

First- and second-year students are required to live on campus, therefore there is no cancellation period. For rising third and fourth year students, you will have a 7-day cancellation period from the day you sign your contract online. After 7 days, the contract becomes legally binding. Contact the Campus Services Center if you have questions about this.

I am relocating to Oxford from a regional campus. When can I select a room?

Relocation students should contact our office to ask about on-campus housing.

When can fall semester second-year study abroad students select a room for spring semester?

These students may select a room during the appropriate time slot, based upon how many semesters they have lived on campus.

Can graduate students live on campus?

Yes! Please contact the Campus Services Center so that we can ensure you have access to our Online Housing System.

How do I learn more about Recovery Housing at Miami?

Families interested in more information about recovery housing options can contact the Dean of Students at deanofstudents@MiamiOH.edu or 513-529-1877.

How do I learn more about Gender-Inclusive housing options?

Miami University recognizes that sex-segregated housing by room may not be best option for all students. Gender Inclusive Housing is reserved for students who feel that living with someone of the opposite legal sex in the same room would be the most comfortable and safe option for them. For more information, visit our Gender-Inclusive Housing Website.
