Building Selection, Preferences & Placement

Incoming UF Students

Building Selection Information

Many incoming students (see specific semesters below) will be able to select their building.  If space is available students may pull in a preferred roommate. Students with later application dates may be assigned by our housing staff according to space availability and each student’s preferences. The latest housing applicants may not receive a housing application until 1-2 weeks before the start of the semester.

Below are the tentative schedules for incoming student room selection and placement.

After 5:00PM on May 8, 2015, specific appointment times will be located under building selection when you log into https://hms.housing.ufl.edu.

 

Fall 2015 Building Selection

Students with Fall 2015/Spring 2016 or Fall 2015/Spring 2016/Summer 2016 housing contracts

Date: May 16, 2015 to May 18, 2015

Students with completed contracts who applied for housing on or before November 30, 2014 will be able to select their own building and room type through online building selection. All other students, with completed contracts with the same academic terms, can be pulled in as part of a roommate group or will be assigned by a housing staff member. Students who choose not to participate in online building selection will also be assigned by our staff.

To view your housing application date, simply log in to https://hms.housing.ufl.edu and it will be on the home screen under the section titled “Housing Information.” Information about building selection appointments will be available after 5:00PM on May 8, 2015

 

Summer B 2015 Building Selection

Students with Summer B housing contracts

Date: May 21, 2015 to May 22, 2015

When possible, students whose Fall 2015 space is available in the Summer will be pre-assigned to the same space for Summer B. All other students will be able to select their own building and room type through online building selection. Students who choose not to participate in online building selection will also be assigned by our staff based upon their preferences.

Information about building selection appointments will be available after 5:00PM on May 8, 2015

Preferences

Building and room type preferences will only be used if you are assigned by a housing staff member. After May 8, 2015 at 5:00PM, you will be able to list your housing preferences for roommates, building and room type. Roommate preferences will be used to assist with pulling people in during building selection and for any assignments made by housing staff. Please note that preferences are not guaranteed per the terms and conditions of the contract.
