Open Housing (gender neutral/gender inclusive) - contact housing

Open Housing is an arrangement whereby two or more students, regardless of sex, gender, or gender expression, are permitted to share a room in residence halls. The primary reason for such a policy is to provide housing options that take into consideration varying identities and preferences, and to ensure a safe and comfortable environment for all students. Open Housing is not intended—and in fact is highly discouraged—for romantic couples. The University encourages students to discuss this option with their parents/guardians before selecting gender-inclusive open housing. All students who have reached the legal age of 18 are able to sign their own housing contracts. As a general rule, students are not released from signed housing contracts due to changes in preferences.  Approval is contingent upon available space.



What is Open Housing?

Open housing allows students of all gender identifications to reside in the same room, suite or apartment. All residents within a room, suite or apartment must agree to be in open housing. You will be able to select that you would like to live in open housing when you apply.

After I book a room how do I view my room assignment?

You may view your room assignment in MyUWF by searching for “Housing Contracts and Services.” Then click on the Room Assignmnet and Roommates button. 

Why can’t I find my roommate in the roommate search box?

Be sure you are spelling your roommate’s name correctly. You must also use the MM/DD/YYYY format when entering your roommate’s birth date.

What is a roommate PIN?

A roommate PIN is a unique number that allows students to add other students as roommates. Roommates should decide who in the roommate group will be the roommate group leader. The group leader will collect the group members' names, birth dates, and roommate PINs in order to add them as roommates.

To set your roommate PIN

  1. Log into MyUWF,
  2. Search for “Housing Contracts and Services,”
  3. Select “Room Selection,” and then “Update Your Roommate PIN.”

Create Your Roommate PIN
Students need a roommate PIN only if they are being added to a room by another person. Students who choose to book their own room do not need a roommate PIN.

Keep Your Same Room
The Keep Your Same Room (aka Room Retention) process allows students to return to the same room for the next academic year without pulling in new roommates.

Keep Your Same Room & Bring a Friend
The Keep Your Same Room & Bring a Friend process (aka Roommate Pull In) allows students to stay in their current room for the next academic and pull in new roommates if space is available in their room, suite, or apartment.

Special Populations & General Room Selection
The General Room Selection process allows students to pick any room on campus for which they are eligible. Students may choose to pull in roommates during this process.
