2018-19 Recontracting Roommates

During Recontracting you can select your own roommates by using the Two-Step Roommate Group function in AccessPlus (A+). Please read the following guides for step-by-step instructions.

Step 1: Forming a roommate group

Step 2: Pulling in roommates


  • Forming a roommate group DOES NOT put you and your roommates in a room together.
  • A+ doesn't know where you and your roommates want to live. You have to tell it.
  • You MUST pull your roommates into the space.

Search Leaders

  • Only one member of each group can be in A+ searching for spaces at a time. This person is called your Search Leader.
  • If a second group member tries to search for spaces, the first person will be "bounced out" and will lose any in-progress selections.
  • Groups should discuss ahead of time who their Search Leader will be.
  • Any group member acting as Search Leader can change assignments for the entire group.
    • It is the Search Leader's responsibility to tell the group that a change has been made.

Selecting a Space

  • Each group lasts for only one assignment change.
    • Once a selection is made, the group dissolves. You need to reform the group to make more changes.
  • Talk to your group! Discuss the types of housing you do / do not want.
  • Once your assignment changes, that change is final unless you or your Search Leader changes it again in A+.
