Room Sign Up for Returning Residents

You can review FAQs about accepting your offer here.

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 2024-2025 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 and will lose any remaining housing guarantee.

Construction Notice: Please note, Gayley Towers will be under construction. If you are living in Landfair Vista, there may be noise impacts from the construction.

You can also access a walk through here.

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 12:00 p.m. (noon) on Tuesday, February 13, 2024. You have to submit the application to participate in RSU — we encourage you to apply even if you may choose different housing later.

Your Room Sign Up time will be emailed to you after the application deadline.

The roommate group process will be available immediately after you submit your application. You will be able to form a roommate group with students you would like to live with for the 2024-2025 academic year.

Roommate groups must be formed by 12:00 p.m. (noon) on Tuesday, February 13. The roommate group process will close at the same times as the application due date.

By forming a roommate group of two or more, you will be eligible to participate in Group Room Sign Up. Please see our step-by-step roommate group guide for more information on how to form a roommate group.

You will receive your group’s RSU timeslot after the application and roommate group deadline. If you need to change your group leader, you will have the opportunity to do so prior to RSU.

Here are some helpful tips if you are having trouble finding your friend in the roommate group process:

  • You will only be able to find other people who have also submitted their applications. If you can’t find your friend, make sure they have submitted their application already.
  • You will only be able to find other people who have the same classification as you. Make sure you are both listed as “Undergraduate Returner” on the Roommate Groups page of the application.
  • You will only be able to find people who have indicated they want to be included in roommate searching. Make sure the person you are looking for has indicated “Yes” on the Roommate Search Options page of the application.
  • You will only be able to find people who have the same Room Assignment Gender as you. If one of you has requested gender inclusive housing and the other has not, one of you will need to update your gender inclusive request. If you and your group member(s) have the same gender identity, you should not request gender inclusive housing.

February 20-February 23, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. :Group RSU for roommate groups of two (2) or more
February 26, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. :Individual RSU for all students not in roommate groups of two (2) or more
March 4-March 6. 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. :Open RSU for all RSU eligible students (you or your group leader will receive a specific Open RSU assigned day and time later on)

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 Individual RSU. You will not be offered housing for next year, if you do not select a room during RSU.

Step-by-step instructions available here. 

Students who select gender inclusive housing will select their room through the housing portal via the standard RSU process. Step-by-step instructions will be available closer to RSU. We will also be hosting a webinar to go over the RSU process on February 13, 2024. Check back here for the link to attend live or view the recording once complete.

Please note, rooms will already be designated as gender inclusive rooms prior to the start of RSU, and gender inclusive students and groups will be able to select from those available rooms. There will be gender inclusive rooms designated in every building on and off-campus.

If students with Non-Binary or Other Room Assignment Gender wish to live only with students who match their Room Assignment Gender, 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.

Students who meet these requirements will select their room via the Room Sign Up process outlined above. However, they may need to work directly with a housing representative to identify an available room before being able to select it in the housing portal. They will be able to communicate with a housing representative via Live Chat during RSU hours.

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 2024-2025 academic year.
