Online Application

My College Roomie

If you know whom you want to room with OR you are looking to find the most compatible roommate for you, My College Roomie is NDSCS's official way to match up in our housing system. My College Roomie is an online roommate matching platform that allows students to find the most compatible roommate for them!

In March, Residential Life will email students that have applied for new student residence hall housing a link to My College Roomie with instructions on how to create a profile. Students that choose to participate will complete a questionnaire. Based on the answers to the questionnaire, My College Roomie will provide the student with other student profiles with high percentage of compatibility. Students can then send message to any of their matches to connect further or to request someone as their roommate.

Want to check it out before you get the invite? Visit the My College Roomie support/solutions page.
