Room Sign Up for Returning Residents

What is Room Sign Up (RSU)?

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 2023-2024 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.

  • Application Process
  • 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 Tuesday, February 7, 2023. You have to submit the application to participate in RSU — we encourage you to apply even if you may choose different housing later.

    We will be hosting a webinar about the application and RSU process on Wednesday, February 1, 2023. Check back here for the link to attend live or view the recording once complete.

    Your specific Room Sign Up time will be emailed to you after the application deadline.
  • Roommate Groups
  • The roommate group process will open on Thursday, February 9, 2023. You will be able to form a roommate group with students you would like to live with for the 2023-2024 academic year. Roommate groups must be formed by 8:00 a.m. on Tuesday, February 28. By forming a roommate group, you will be eligible to participate in Early Room Sign Up.
  • Room Sign Up
  • March 6 - March 8: Early RSU for roommate groups of two (2) or more
    March 9: Main RSU for all students who don't participate in Early RSU
    March 10: Open RSU for all students

    During Room Sign Up, you (or your group leader if you have a roommate group) will enter the RSU portal and select the exact building and room for yourself, or your group.

    If you do not form a roommate group, you still need to select your room during Main RSU. You will not be offered housing for next year, if you do not select a room during RSU.

    We will be hosting a webinar closer to RSU with step by step instructions. Check back here for the link to attend live or view the recording.
  • 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: RSU Process
  • If non-binary students wish to live only with other non-binary students, they should not select Gender Inclusive housing. For those who wish to live with other students of different gender identities, they should select Gender Inclusive housing and can review the gender inclusive RSU process above.

    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, can select the open space. If an open space remains after RSU, Housing Services will assign another non-binary student to the space.
  • Offer Process
  • We will send you an offer for the room you selected in mid-April. At that time you will officially accept and submit your initial payment, securing your space for the 2023-2024 academic year.
