Housing Lottery: Resident Groups

Key Points from the ResLife Portal team:

  • Each student can only be a member of one (1) Resident Group.

  • If trying to add another student to a group, and if that other student is already a member of another group, the system will not allow a student to be a member of more than one group.

  • A student can add any other student to a Resident Group (regardless of residence hall or room assignment for the current academic year).

  • When adding a student to a Resident Group, the email address looks for a matching email address within the system.

  • Only the student with the lowest Lottery Number will receive an email notification when their Lottery Number is activated by the Lottery Queue. It will be the responsibility of that student will need to tell their Resident Group members it's time to choose a room.

  • Each student can decide to remove themselves from a Resident Group.

  • Only the creator of a Resident Group can delete the entire group and remove all group members.

  •  Each student does not need to create a Resident Group.


Question: I want to create a Resident Group with another student, but I think we each created our own Resident Group. What do I do?
To remedy the situation:

  • Part 1 of 2: One student needs to sign-in to the Resident Hub, go into the Room Assignments, then go to “Resident Group”, then click “Delete Group."
  • Part 2 of 2: Then the other student will be able to invite them into their group.
