How many roommates can I request?
  • You can request 1 roommate or group mate.
  • All roommates must request each other.
  • Roommate requests must all be the same gender and registered for the same lodging.
  • Group mate requests are only for those of the opposite gender. And same pocilies apply to requests. Must be same age or within one year and be in the same lodging.
  • We do our best to accommodate all roommate and group requests, but reserve the right to make necessary changes.

Can I request a roommate older/younger than me?

  • We create groups so that members are the same age or one year apart. You may request someone older/younger than you and we will do our best to accommodate, but if the age difference is greater than one year then it's not possible.  If you want to be together, then the older person will be with a younger group. We will not put a younger person with an older group.
