Roommate Matching

The Roommate Matching section is found on the Saint Michael's College Symplicity Residence Housing System. On the system homepage, you will notice a box on the right that says "Your Passcode".

your passcode

This is a code generated for each resident, which you can give to another new student to link the two of you together. Before you give out your passcode, please be positive that you want to live with that person.

Please note that students are welcome to, but not required to, select a specific roommate.

Residence Life will match all students who do not select a specific roommate with other students based on compatible answers to the Roommate Questionnaire. Applications will remain open to edit until the deadline has passed. Applications will show in draft form until submitted by the student.

Important Note

Once you click "submit", your application will become final and will be unable to be changed. If for some reason, you need to make changes to your roommate information, please contact our office. If you have any questions or difficulties with this process, please contact the Student Life Office at 802.654.2566 or residentalhousing@smcvt.edu.

1. Roommate Matching

Log in, then click on the roommate matching tab at the top. Students can search for residents who match their profile by using the information from the roommate questionnaire.

Please be aware that the system will only provide you with results that match all of the questions you answered, so you may wish to only select those that are of most importance. The results will only include those students who have already applied for housing and have indicated interests in the same type of housing and the same smoking preference as you.
