Room Assignment


The Fall room selection is done through MyPlace@SFU. Selection dates are rolling and outlined below. Once room selection ends no roommate groups or room selection requests can be accommodated as we will be placing all remaining students in available rooms.

*Note: You do not need to participate in room selection. If you do not select a room, a room will be assigned to you.

Due to room placement and building availability, there is no room selection option for Spring and Summer terms. 

How to select your room

  1. Log into your MyPlace@SFU and select room selection from the top bar or side bar
  2. Choose your building or townhouse block from the options
  3. Choose your floor or specific townhouse from the available options, (you can adjust the filters on the side to narrow your choices)
  4. Assign yourself to a specific room. If you have roommates for your townhouse, you will be able to assign your confirmed roommates at this time
