BSC Roommate Matching

Use My College Roomie to find your Roommate
After you have completed your housing application, an invitation will be sent to your BSC email address, asking you to create a profile in My College Roomie.(Please note: Your ability to log into MCR will not be active until the invitation email is sent – typically one or two business days after completion of your housing application).
  • Match up with someone you know: Simply log into MCR, complete a profile, answer some questions, then request to match up with your preferred roommate. 
  • Match up with someone new: Log into MCR, create a profile, and complete a questionnaire. After that, you will be able to look at other student’s profiles and see your percentage of compatibility. Then, you can send messages to any or all of your suggested matches to connect further. Finally, you can request each other as roommates.
Need help or want to check it out before you jump in? Visit the My College Roomie support/solutions page to find a ton of videos on how the program works, how to get started, and more! If you still have questions, submit a help ticket.
