Roommate Requests

Requesting Roommates

Both First and Upper Year Students get an opportunity to request specific roommates before the housing assignment process takes place. The Student Housing Office cannot guarantee roommate requests if the applicant has not met our specific deadlines and/or has been offered residence from a wait list.

All roommate requests must have the matching request from the other student(s). Any roommate requests without the matching request will be not be considered. All roommate requests are to be done on your online application on the Student Housing Portal.

Students are able to add, delete or modify their roommates, using a UTSC Roommate ID as well as their housing preference. Once you are logged into your online application, select the specific application period you want to live with preferred roommates, add their UTSC Roommate ID and click "Continue" to save the data. Please contact Student Housing & Residence Life if you need to know your personal UTSC Roommate ID number.

Summer students will have the opportunity to request a specific roommate at the time of filling out the online Summer Residence Application on the Student Housing Portal.
