Select Your Room


Receiving Your Timeslot

If you completed the Housing application by the deadline, your timeslot will be available on Monday, March 10th, 2022 in the Student Housing Portal via MyLMU. This timeslot will indicate the earliest time you can select your room online. All rooms available to your classification (LMU Blue or LMU Crimson) will be available at the beginning of Selection.

Your timeslot indicates the earliest time that you will be able to log back into the application to view floor plans of available buildings and select from available rooms. Each member of your roommate group will receive a different timeslot. You are able to select a room at the beginning of your timeslot and up until the end of Room Selection for your classification. See below:

Room Selection Dates:

  • LMU Blue: Mar 15 - 18
  • LMU Crimson: Mar 22 - 25

The process is conducted through the Housing application in the Student Housing Portal. Group members can proceed with Room Selection whenever is most convenient but the availability of rooms may decrease as other students make selections. Should you require assistance, you can contact the housing office at or 310-338-2963. Note: DO NOT miss class to choose your room; you can still make the selection after your timeslot begins. 

We highly encourage group members to either make the room choice together or discuss their plans beforehand. Once a selection is made it cannot be changed until after the process ends. After the process ends, changes can only be made depending on space availability. Assignment changes will be permitted beginning April 7 and cannot be guaranteed. You will need to fill out the "Change of Assignment Request Form" found in the Student Housing Portal via MyLMU.

Students who do not receive a timeslot will receive a waitlist notification with more details. 

Please see the timeslot e-mail and FAQs for some more details on the room selection process.

Selecting Your Building And Room

  1. In the Housing Application, the Room Selection pages will allow group members to select a room for themselves and their roommates on/after their timeslot.
  2. Group members will be able to see all buildings available to choose from based on their classification (LMU Blue / LMU Crimson).
  3. After selecting a building, group members will select the room, and assign themselves and their roommates to the specific spaces in the rooms. Group members must assign everyone in their group before they can continue.
  4. Once the "Assign Beds" button is clicked, a housing assignment will be finalized for the next academic year and no changes can be made.

Troubleshooting tips:

  • The group member will have approximately 4 minutes to decide whether or not to assign their group to the selected room(s) within a unit. When 4 minutes lapse, the page will refresh and the group member must start over.
  • The group member will need to select enough rooms to accommodate the number of students in the group.
    • Example: If a group member from a group of 4 was choosing an apartment, the group member would need to select room A and room B from the same apartment in order to proceed to the next page where they can select which individuals will live in which rooms.
  • You should only choose rooms within the same apartment/suite; you cannot assign your group members to rooms in different units.
  • Once rooms are chosen, the group member will assign themselves and their roommates to specific spaces within the room(s). Each student must be assigned to a specific space.
    • Two students cannot be assigned to the same space; one space cannot be assigned to two students.

A few special rooms exist that differ from our standard double-occupancy rooms. If available during your timeslot, the group leader can select these rooms. For more information about these rooms, please see "Singles and Other Special Rooms" section below.

The Student Housing Office will be actively reviewing the Room Selection portion of the Housing Selection Process. Not following the provided instructions could result in the loss of the desired housing assignment.

Living Learning Community or Theme Housing Option

Consider applying to be a member of a Living Learning Community or a Theme Housing Option for the chance to pursue your education in a living and learning curricular and extracurricular environment suited to your passions. These programs require that you submit a separate application during your housing application process. Since you can only have one room assignment, you become ineligible to participate in the Room Selection Process once you are accepted and commit to a theme housing option or LLC. Spring applicants should contact LLC programs directly for information on availability for their program. 

Housing Rates

All Housing Rates include internet access, utilities, live-in staff support, 24-hour on-call maintenance and emergency response and more! All rates are for the 2021-2022 academic year. Rates for all buildings are subject to change and are increased annually. Housing rates for the 2022-2023 academic year will be published in April. 

Once you have made your tuition deposit please allow 2-3 business days before you are able to apply for housing.
