Room Assignments Housing and Residence Life Furman University

We determine room assignments and roommates for the academic year through our seniority-based housing lottery, a computer system that takes each student's preferences into account before assigning a room. Priority is given to seniors, juniors and then sophomores. Each resident is invited to participate in the lottery with the roommate of their choice.​

Students may choose their preferences by following the appropriate housing application steps​. If you are a returning student and do not receive confirmation that your name has been submitted for a room assignment, contact us​

Assignments are made without regard to race, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, or disability.​

Find your Room assignment

New students will receive their room assignment through their Furman email. If you are a returning student, you can view the status of your application through our secure site: MyFurman. Visit the housing section of the portal, and check your status under "Verify Assignment Status." Login to MyFurman.
