Room Selection – Numbers & Times

Room Selection Numbers & Selection Times: March

BU Housing will notify students of their room selection number and selection times via their BU email address. Separate selection times for Same Room Pull-In, Internal and Community Selection will be emailed prior to the dates of each process.  If a student receives a selection time for one selection process and does not select a room, they will be sent a new selection date and time for the next selection process for which they are eligible.

Room selection times are generated based on a student’s room selection number which are generated by class year.  Please see the room selection number ranges below.

If you find errors in your class year, current residence, and/or room number, do the following:

  • Incorrect class year. Verify your class year status by checking it on the Student Link. If the incorrect class year appears on the Student Link, contact the records department at your School or College to update your information. You must contact BU Housing with updated information to receive a new Room Selection number. You will not be issued a new Room Selection Number until the University’s system reflects the update.
  • Wrong residence/room listed for Same Room. Contact BU Housing to verify your correct residence/room and to correct the documentation.
  • No information received. Contact BU Housing.
