First Year Sign-up Questions

Most singles are filled by returning students. Typically, there are not enough singles for all first-year students who request them. If that is your preference, please explain your reason in the notes section and we will take it into consideration. 

We would love to try and help you! To get the ball rolling, be sure to include your desire for an LGBTQ friendly roommate in the notes section of your on-line housing application. When we receive information that a student would like an LGBTQ friendly roommate, we will keep track of that request and will pair folks up as best we can. The success of this initiative depends on students letting us know that this is their preference. We cannot guarantee that we can pair everyone, but we will certainly try as we learn of students who are interested in such a match.

All requests are considered but not guaranteed. If we need more information to make a decision, we will call you at your home. If you want to be contacted elsewhere, be sure to include an alternative phone number or email address.

Alexander, Christensen, Richardson, Lord, and Williamson are exclusively for first-year students.  All other halls except Mills Hall are at least 25 percent occupied by first-years so, no matter where you live, you’ll find other new students experiencing similar first-year transition issues.

We are committed to working with students who are experiencing uncomfortable living situations, and will help you as best we can, however we encourage you to talk with your residence hall director.

Assignments are typically available in early July. An email will be sent to your UNH account with Blackboard instructions for looking up your assignment and roommate.
