Room Assignments

Fall room assignments will be available to view in My Housing (via UAOnline) in early August. You will receive an email from the Housing Office once assignments are finalized and are available to view. Your roommates will be listed in My Housing, along with their email addresses, so you can contact your future roommates and plan for the upcoming semester.
