Find a Roommate

Are you a current Penn rising sophomore, junior or senior looking for a roommate for the 2020-2021 school year? Join Residential Services' private Facebook group to find a roommate!

When you request to join, an administrator will verify your status as an active Penn student and admit you to the group within 24 business hours.

You can write a post about what kind of room you are hoping to select and what you are looking for in a roommate! You can also search posts for others looking for the same thing as you.

The Find a Roommate group will be live soon and will remain available through the end of the Room Selection application period.

Roommates and the Room Selection Processes

Program Communities Process

  • Students applying for Program Communities may apply as a group of roommates.
  • Each roommate must apply for and be accepted into the Program Community.
  • Roommate requests are not guaranteed.

Room Retention, Return to House, and Move to Another House Processes

  • Students may form groups of 1 to 4 people.
  • Group members should make sure they agree on the room types in which they are interested and on which roommates will take which bedrooms.
  • Group members must have the same sex assigned at birth. If students of different sexes assigned at birth would like to live together, they can request Gender Inclusive Housing on the housing application.
