RoomSync is a FREE application supported by University Residences at Purdue University. If you use an application other than RoomSync, you are responsible for going back into our New Resident Contract system, adding your roommate request and re-signing your housing contract so your change will be saved. Each student who is requesting a roommate must do this; the request has to be mutual.
Students who have found each other and agreed to be roommates using RoomSync will have their roommate request information automatically imported into our system. About seven days after you sign a housing contract you will receive an email from firstname.lastname@example.org with your unique application ID. Please note: This is not the same as your MyPurdue profile or log-in information. Be sure to keep an eye on your spam mail folder because sometimes the emails will go there instead of your inbox.
To ensure your roommate request is made, both of you must:
1. List your seven residences in the same order of preference
2. Request each other as roommates
3. Sign a housing contract by the May 5th deadline
If you wish to take part in a Learning Community (LC) that has a housing requirement you will want to make sure you are asking potential roommates if they are also applying for the LC because it may affect your placement. Mutual roommate requests will take precedence over LC placement. The RoomSync app can be useful if you are pursuing a Learning Community without a residential requirement. It can also be useful if you find someone who is eligible for and interested in the same LC with a residential requirement. What that means is not that the roommate requests are guaranteed to happen (honoring a roommate request is a function of a number of factors), but that LC staff will not place you in an LC with a required residential component if you have requested a roommate who is not eligible/did not apply for that LC. In other words, LC staff will view a mutual roommate request as a priority over the LC application.
