Roommate Survey
Housing and Residence Life

Students who wish to participate in any of our Roommate Selection processes (either for new incoming students or returning upperclass students) must complete a Roommate Survey.  Before you begin, check out the page below for more important information regarding Housing processes.

Before You Submit Your Roommate Survey

When You Submit Your Roommate Survey

  • SHU ID. You will need your ID number, which can be found on the back of your ID Card or in your acceptance letter.
  • Starting Semester. Please select the first semester for which you would like housing.
  • Special Accommodations. If you need ADA accommodations, your housing application will be held until your request has been reviewed by Disability Support Services.
  • Meal Plans. All students who live in our on campus residence halls (Aquinas, Boland, Cabrini, Neumann, Serra, or Xavier Halls) must select a meal plan. You can change your plan at any time during the Add/Drop period. Learn about meal plan options and rates.

After You Apply

  • Room Assignments. Your residence hall or apartment and your roommate(s) will be e-mailed to your SHU e-mail address and the address you provided on your roommate survey in mid-July. They can also be viewed on your Housing Profile on PirateNet. 
  • Billing Questions. Read the overview of housing billing, deposits and refunds.
  • Cancel Your Deposit. If you decide to cancel your deposit, send your Housing cancellation form to or fax it to (973) 761-9482. New incoming student housing deposits are non-refundable after May 1st and returning student housing deposits are non-refundable.

Roommate Survey
Temporarily Unavailable

Due to a software upgrade, our Roommate Survey will be temporarily unavailable beginning Wednesday, May 22. We expect to have it available again by June 1.  We apologize for the inconvenience and assure you this will not affect your ability to receive housing this Fall or select a roommate. All deposited incoming freshmen resident students will receive an email this week containing information on selecting your roommate. Freshmen Roommate Selection will begin on June 1.  If you wish to pay your housing deposit you may do so at the “Pay your Housing Deposit” link.  For any questions, please contact SHUHOUSING@SHU.EDU or (973) 761-9172.  Thank you for your understanding.

Still Have Questions?

Housing staff will be hosting online chats once a month in the spring and twice a month in the summer.
