My College Roomie

What is My College Roomie?

Finding a compatible roommate can be stressful. There are so many options, so who should you choose? Picking a roommate is a big commitment - that's why My College Roomie is here to help!

My College Roomie (MCR) is an online roommate matching system. This web-based system allows students to network and engage with each other, as well as match with and select roommates. The algorithm helps make roommate matches based on the information you provide such as interests, lifestyle, personality, and living preferences.

How It Works

1. You must be accepted to GVSU AND have an active housing application.
2. You will receive an email to your GVSU student email from My College Roomie when it's time to create a profile and complete the roommate matching questionnaire.  For returning students: The system resets annually and does not save the previous year's questionnaires or profiles. Returners will also receive an invitation to build a profile and submit a new questionnaire. 
3. Log in to My College Roomie with your GVSU credentials. 
4. After completing your profile, complete the questionnaire. 
5. You'll now be able to view other student profiles, review your compatibility and send messages to connect with other students. 
6. Once you have decided on a roommate or roommates, you should request each other.  Matches must be made in My College Roomie in order to populate myHousing.  For incoming first-year students: Unmatched students will be auto-matched based on the questionnaire prior to housing assignments being made, so it's important to create an account and submit the survey even if you don't self-match. That questionnaire will help us find you a good roomie!

For Fall:

Returning and Transfer student match window opens in early November.  

The incoming first-year student match window opens in February.
