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 is live at and remains 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 be of the same gender. If students of different genders would like to live together, they can request Gender Neutral Housing on the housing application.
