Online Room and Roommate Selection for All Students

Johnson & Wales University was seeking a  way to eliminate their paper based application process to allow for a full online process and create a streamlined and effective way to allow students to select their rooms and roommates.

Our implementation of StarRez has given us the ability to easily manage our housing operation across all four campuses while giving all of our students the power to drive the entire room & roommate self-selection process. ”
