Room and Roommate Selection

The Housing Self-Service application for room and roommate selection is accessible via eCampus. Adelphi’s eCampus portal integrates the programs and applications that Adelphi students use every day. In order to select a roommate and a room online, you will need access to Adelphi’s eCampus portal.


Online Room Selection is a process whereby current Adelphi students may select a room for the following academic year.

  1. Pay your Deposit: Pay your $300 non-refundable non-transferable housing deposit to the cashier located in the lower level of Levermore Hall before May 1. Alternatively, you may pay your deposit online through CLASS, by clicking “My Housing Deposit” in the menu. Do NOT use the “Make a Payment” link.
  2. Register for fall courses: Course registrations are made online through CLASS and should be completed by May 1.
  3. Submit your Housing Application:
    – Submit your housing application using “Housing Self-Service” on eCampus by May 2.
    – Learn more about Special Residential Communities and find the living arrangements that work best for you
    – If you are applying for Gender Inclusive Housing, you must also submit a Policy Agreement and Roommate Preference form as soon as possible
  4. Room Selection Email: You will be notified via your Adelphi email if you qualify to participate in the Online Room Selection before May 3.
  5. Make Your Room Selection: The standard online room selection for students with roommates will take place on May 4-6.

Already Know Who You Would Like to Room With?

  1. Log in to eCampus and select “Housing Self-Service” tool from your available services
  2. Click on “Room Selection” and select “Roommate/Suitemate”
  3. Once the match is mutual between all roommates, you will see “Match” noted on the screen. Prior to this, they will be listed as pending.

Please note: You will not be able to choose an ineligible student as your roommate(s) or any student who has not submitted an application or housing deposit.

Don’t Have a Roommate?

If you would like to find a roommate, try the following:

  1. Attend one of our Roommate Socials
  2. Use the Advanced Roommate Search feature of “Housing Self-Service” on eCampus

Students without matched roommates can select a room from May 10-11. This is the last chance to self-select a room on campus.

The Office of Residential Life and Housing has beds available for new graduate and transfer students. There are no online room selections for new graduate and transfer students. New graduate and transfer students will be assigned a room as soon as housing applications, housing deposits, and course registrations are complete.

In order to live on campus, you must apply for housing through the Office of Admissions.
