What if I want to keep my current room?
Room retention refers to someone who wants to stay in the exact room and space they are now in. If you are a current resident who is registered for classes and has no holds on your account, you are eligible to retain your current room. You must get any holds on your account removed to be eligible.

How to set up your PIN number
All students participating in room retention/selection must set a four-digit numerical PIN number. Choose four numbers you will remember. Residence Life and Housing does not have the ability to look up PIN numbers or reset PIN numbers. If you are going to pull in friends, you will need their PIN number in order to complete the process. If you’re being pulled in by a friend, you will need to give them your PIN number.
