The Returning Student Room Sign-up process is for current campus housing residents that: want to live in campus housing for Fall 2013 / Spring 2014 are considering living in campus housing for Fall 2014 / Spring 2015. You do not have to re-apply for housing if you currently live on campus you only need to complete a new contract.

You will have the opportunity to place a hold on the vacant space in your selected room for a roommate 24 hours before the date that they are eligible to select the room. Your friend must then accept the held space within the 24 hour window. If the student does not accept the held space within 24 hours the hold will expire and the space will be available to all other students participating in Room Sign-Up. Roommates new to Keys cannot be pulled into Keys unless it is also their class standing day.
- Log into myHousing Portal with your Gatorlink information on your selection date and time.
- Search for a room on-campus with more than one vacancy.
- Selected that space.
- Place a hold on any vacant spaces available in your selected room for your prospective roommates with their UFID number. Holds can only be placed for students with the same Housing Contract period.
- See Examples below
- An email will be sent to the other student(s) notifying them that a space is being held for them and that they have 24 hours to either accept or decline the space.
- That student must sign on to the Housing Portal within 24 hours of the hold being placed (regardless of their Signup Date and Time), select the ROOM SIGNUP link and either Accept or Decline the held space. The hold will be removed from the vacant space if the student does not Accept/Decline the space within 24 hours, and will be available to other students in the room selection process.
- A confirmation email will be sent to the roommate regarding the whether the student accepted or denied that space.
Rent is due in full prior to the beginning of each semester. You must apply for a housing deferment to use financial aid funds towards your billed rent.
