Room Sign Up for Returning Residents
UCLA Housing Room Sign Up (RSU) is an online process that provides eligible returning undergraduate residents the opportunity to select their housing for the next academic year.
If your classification is “Undergraduate Returner,” be sure to apply via MyHousing by 4:00 p.m. on Tuesday, January 28, 2020. Note: all incoming freshmen have a guarantee of three consecutive years of University-owned housing; incoming transfer students have a one year guarantee. Once your guarantee has been exhausted, your classification updates to “Undergraduate Lottery.” Keep in mind that any roommates you wish to live with need to be the same classification as you, and you need to apply for the same term. Contract dates for the 2020-2021 traditional academic year will be September 27, 2020 – June 11, 2021.
Searching for roommates is easy! You will receive instructions via email on how to form roommate groups after the application deadline has passed.
Not sure who you want to live with? Roommate search will be available via your completed application after the deadline. Search for suggested roommates based on lifestyle preferences and message them through the application portal!
Everyone participating in RSU will still need to form a roommate group, even if it's a group of one for you to pick a room by yourself. Roommate groups of more than one person will have priority to select their rooms, but if you prefer not to sign up with roommates, you will still need to select your room during Main RSU.
The online Room Sign Up event will take place during the week of March 2, 2020.
March 2 - March 4: Early RSU for roommate groups of two (2) or more
March 5: Main RSU for all students who don't participate in Early RSU
