StarRez,  Residence Life’s new comprehensive housing solution, launched this week thanks to the combined efforts of staff from Student Affairs, the Business Office and IT Services. Director of Residence Life RJ Chittams says, “We are extremely excited to launch this new process. While daunting to implement, it has allowed us to create a more efficient application process”. The first StarRez service launched on Tuesday, May 2, is the Housing Management module as it will have the greatest impact for both students and staff. Other modules will be phased in over the summer. With the new system, students are able to apply for housing from anywhere- 24/7.

In the first 42 hours, there were nearly 400 housing applications initiated through the new service. A popular function is the ability for students to see and select other students they would potentially match as roommates- all through the roommate finder function.  This self-help system gives students a percentage match with other students based upon their answers to profile questions. The new process will  allow for more efficient functioning for housing operations.
