So What's Next? Priority Renewal Happens in 3 Easy Steps!

They look long, but they're simple!

STEP 1: REGISTER

STARTS EARLY FEBRUARY - DATES TO BE ANNOUNCED - COME BACK FOR UPDATES AFTER JANUARY 18TH, 2021

The first step is to fill out the Renewal registration. Head to your Residence Dashboard. Choose to keep your same room, select a new preference (1 of the 5 options listed below), or let us know you're returning, but don't have a preference. If you choose to stay in your same room, your process is complete and you'll be set with your space with the following year.

 Renewal Registration Preference Options

  1. Same Room in Any Building
  2. Same Room, in an LLC
  3. Join and LLC or Change Rooms in an LLC
  4. New Room or Move to Main Campus
  5. New Room or Move to Lobo Rainforest

A little, BIG reminder: Keep in mind absolute cut-off date for renewal registration. Renewal registrations will not be accepted after this date and you will have to submit a regular registration with a $50 registration fee and you will lose your priority selection. So register early and get all the benefits of Priority Renewal!

STEP 2: ROOMMATE MATCH

DATES TO BE ANNOUNCED - COME BACK AFTER JANUARY 18TH, 2021

After the registration is submitted, you will be able to log into your Residence Dashboard and select a roommate(s). If you know who you want to room with, enter their roommate code and make sure they do the same. If you are looking to select several roommates for an apartment, create a roommate group. We suggest choosing the most responsible person in the group for this job because they will be in charge of choosing your room when it comes time.If you don't know who you want to live with, complete the match process to find a new friend!

Here's a quick recap of how to choose your roommate(s).

STEP 3: ROOM SELECTION

DATES TO BE ANNOUNCED - COME BACK AFTER JANUARY 18TH, 2021

Now the fun part! Once steps 1 and 2 are completed, you will receive an email with a time slot for the earliest time you can select your room for next year. The selection times are based on your class classification (grad students go first, then seniors), and then the time you submitted you registration. So the earlier you apply, the higher priority you receive! Select your room within your time slot to have the best chance of getting what you want. Someone else's time slot will open after yours and that's another person potentially looking at the same room! For roommate groups, the group leader, the responsible one we told you about in step 2, will get the time slot for the whole group.
