Room Sign Up Information 
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. All eligible students interested in housing for the 2022-2023 academic year must submit their application and participate in RSU in order to receive a housing offer. Students who do not select a room during RSU will not be extended a housing offer.

If your classification is “Undergraduate Returner,” Housing Services will notify you via email of your eligibility for RSU, and you must apply via the online application portal by 4:00 p.m. on Thursday, February 10, 2022. 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 2022-2023 full academic year will be September 18, 2022 – June 16, 2023.

If you have roommates you wish to live with, you will be able to access the Roommate Group process after the application due date. Roommate groups of more than one person will have priority to select their rooms, but if you prefer to select a room without including other students in your group, you will still need to select your room during Main RSU.

The online Room Sign Up event will take place during the week of February 28, 2022.

February 28 - March 2: Early RSU for roommate groups of two (2) or more
March 3: Main RSU for all students who don't participate in Early RSU
March 4: Open RSU for all students

Gender Inclusive Housing: RSU Process

Because our housing portal system operates on a binary, in order to allow students who have selected gender inclusive the widest variety of options, students will need to work with a Housing Services representative to select their room during RSU.

  • If students have formed a gender inclusive roommate group, once their timeslot has begun, the group leader will need to either come in person to the Housing Services Office, or LiveChat to select the building and room for their group. 
  • If you do not form a roommate group, you will still need to come in person or LiveChat during Main RSU to select your space for the academic year. 
  • Any building or room can be selected, but please note that if your roommate group does not fill the entire room, suite, or unit, any other student who has selected gender inclusive housing, regardless of gender, can select the open space. If an open space remains after RSU, Housing Services will assign another student who requested gender inclusive housing to the space.

Non-Binary Students who have Not selected Gender Inclusive Housing: RSU Process

Because our housing portal system operates on a binary, in order to allow non-binary students who have not selected gender inclusive housing the widest variety of options, students will need to work with a Housing Services representative to select their room during RSU.

  • If students have formed a roommate group, once their timeslot has begun, the group leader will need to either come in person to the Housing Services Office, or LiveChat to select the building and room for their group. 
  • If you do not form a roommate group, you will still need to come in person or LiveChat during Main RSU to select your space for the academic year. 
  • Any building or room can be selected, but please note that if your roommate group does not fill the entire room, suite, or unit, any other non-binary student who has not selected gender inclusive housing, can select the open space. If an open space remains after RSU, Housing Services will assign another non-binary student to the space.
