Housing Assignments

Alma’s Housing Office works hard to place you in the residence hall of your choice and to match you up with a compatible roommate.

Priority for receiving your preferred residence hall assignment is determined by the date on which you submit your commitment deposit.


Roommate assignments are based on the answers you provide in your Housing Questionnaire, which is available once you’ve made your commitment deposit. Requests for specific roommates are granted if both students indicate the request in writing. Residence hall and roommate assignments are determined in midsummer for all incoming students. Gender-inclusive housing options are also available.
