Room Selection

Incoming Students


We're excited to invite you to find your roommate and meet other residents through the RoomSync app on Facebook. Click the link below to add the app and find your roommate. Don't click the link from your mobile device; wait until you're in front of a computer. Don't worry, there's a mobile app that you can add after joining RoomSync.


Once you've matched with your roommate on RoomSync, you'll need to make your request official by visiting our housing portal to request your roommate.

  1. Login: Enter your user ID number or Social Security Number (i.e., 999999999) and your login PIN. Your initial PIN number is a random set of six characters and numbers that you received in a paper letter or an email message to your Alfred State account. Continuing students will use the PIN they have set up.

Important for first time users:

Once you log in, you'll be asked to create a new PIN and set up a security question and answer. The question and answer will help you access your account if you ever forget your PIN.

Note: When creating your new login PIN, be sure to make it easy to remember. The PIN must be six digits in the form of characters/numbers or any combination thereof. It's advisable to use words, not numbers or dates for your security question and answer.

This PIN must be used whenever you log in to the secure area of BannerWeb to register for classes, process your bill, request transcripts, print unofficial transcripts, change mailing address, print unofficial transcripts, change mailing address, check your grades, etc.
