Looking for your perfect match? No worries!

A huge factor in how good your student's college experience will be is the type of roommates your student has. Be confident that Housing & Residence Life will help your student get matched to roommates with similar interests and traits. Housing & Residence Life matches on many different criteria. Some of the criteria are listed below:

  • Roommate request
  • Lifestyle - ie. night owl, early bird, quiet
  • Degree / Field of Study
  • Personal Interests
  • Extracurricular activities
  • Class year

When filling out a housing contract, applicants can specify whatever criteria they want their roommates to fit. We do our best to match you with the perfect roommate, but we cannot guarantee a flawless roommate experience.

Roommate hasn't paid up? No worries!

Weber State Housing provides individual lease liability. If your roommate skips out on rent, you are not liable for his/her rental payment. Sleep well by knowing there will be no unexpected rental payments to make up the difference.

To find out more details about individual lease liability call our office at 801.626.7275.

We have twenty-four-hour on call staff. There is always a Resident Assistant and professional staff member on call to assist in any emergency that may arise in your students stay at Weber State Housing. Roommate mediation, conflict resolution, and emergency resolution are all part of what the Resident Assistants are trained to handle.
