Students will complete their housing application using the my.sbu.edu student portal. After you log in and click “housing preferences,” you will be guided through a series of questions that will help us determine your room assignment and roommate for your first year.
Prior to completing the application, we strongly encourage students to identify and select their roommate. We are proud to offer RoomSync as our preferred roommate matching software to help you in finding your roommate.
By using a passcode-protected Facebook app, St. Bonaventure works closely with RoomSync to provide our residents with the unique opportunity to interact with other students while safely finding future roommates. Students can only use the RoomSync app after obtaining a special passcode from the SBU Housing Office. We do not honor any roommate requests made through other services so we encourage students to make sure that they are only engaging with the RoomSync Facebook app. After identifying a roommate, students will then need to submit their roommate request to our office using the my.sbu student portal.
In collaboration with RoomSync, St. Bonaventure University aims to utilize social networking technology to empower roommate choice. By giving students the ability to select their roommates, we strive to provide a happier and more gratifying campus living experience.
If you have questions about how to use the RoomSync app, please contact our office or visit the RoomSync Support page.
