Ready to Live Here?

If you would like to move in with a roommate of your choice, you can—but you also don’t need to have a roommate in mind. You will be matched with someone who has similar sleeping, studying and cleanliness habits. Note that this may or may not be someone who is the same biological sex as you.

Please indicate your desire to live in the True Colors Community on your housing application, which is available on the My Elmhurst Campus Portal (click on the “My Housing” link). If you have any questions about the community, please contact the Office of Housing and Residence Life at (630) 617-3150 or reslife@elmhurst.edu.
