You may live in a university-sponsored apartment which follow university housing policies. Please note that requested housing assignments are made on a first-come, first-serve basis.
While you are not required to live in AU-affiliated housing should you decide to live elsewhere, we are unable to assist in any housing-related issue. You can find your own housing using the AU off-campus housing website.
Can I request to share a room with someone I already know?
Yes, American University makes every effort to fulfill roommate requests, but they cannot be guaranteed. All honored roommate requests must be mutual and be included on each roommate’s housing application before the priority housing deadline.
