IT IS SO EASY!

HEY CURRENT RESIDENTS –
LOOK FOR DETAILED INFO IN YOUR WOU EMAIL IN FEBRUARY
THE PROCESS WILL BEGIN IN MARCH!

  1. Look for an email with detailed information about how the process works.
  2. We will start by opening up a roommate search program for you to find a roommate if you don’t already
    know who you want to live with next year.
  3. We will set up and offer tours of Arbor Park and Ackerman Hall spaces.
  4. Then in March the online Housing Renewal process will begin!

ONCE MARCH ROLLS AROUND . . . 

Specific dates and times TBD

  1. Log onto the Portal and access your Housing Overview. (https://www.wou.edu/portal/ – Look for WOU University Housing.)
  2. Read, and understand the Terms and Conditions for the Housing Renewal process.
  3. List any roommates that you want to live with. They will have to do the same for you.

FEBRUARY
ROOM SYNC is AVAILABLE

Room Sync is a TOOL that you can use to help you
FIND and CONNECT with YOUR PERFECT MATCH!

REMEMBER – This just helps you FIND a Roommate –
EACH OF YOU will then have to CONFIRM your
Roommate Choice in the Housing Renewal Process by
updating your preferences and listing your roommate
choice(s) there.

Check your WOU email! The link for Room Sync and
your specific login information will be sent to you.

ACCESS, READ & UNDERSTAND THE TERMS
OF SERVICE TO PARTICIPATE IN THE PROCESS.
SEE WHEN YOUR SELECTION TIME SLOT
WILL BEGIN!

Starting at 10 am, you will be able to access and read the
Terms and Conditions of Service. Understand that by
participating in the Housing Renewal Process (this
includes being pulled in as a roommate) you agree to
these Terms and Conditions for the process.

You can and should update your preferences (Roommates,
Meal Plan and Contact Info).
THIS is when you add your roommate choices and
they add YOU as THEIR roommate choice to confirm
each other. Doing this will allow you to pull roommates into
a space you select, or to be pulled in by someone else.

Any time after 5 pm, you will be able to see when your time
slot to log in and choose your room online will be.
