Advanced Assignment Capabilities

The Housing Director lets you assign students in many ways. Assign first-year students using our industry-leading AutoAssign feature to match students to rooms and to each other using personal and hall/room-based preferences. Returning students can select their own housing using our customizable and flexible Online Room Selection system, part of the The Housing Director Self-Service. You can always manually assign/switch/swap or cancel room assignments with just a couple clicks of your mouse. However you decide to assign students to their rooms, billing and other housing fees are taken care of in parallel with the assignment process. Managing your assignment processes has never been so quick and easy!

The Housing Director Self-Service

The Housing Director Self-Service (THDSS) allows you to put the housing process in your students’ hands. Via THDSS, new and returning students may submit their housing applications, electronically sign their housing agreement, answer personal/living preference questions, and pay their housing deposit (via integrations with a variety of Payment Vendors). Information entered during the housing application process may be used by students to find compatible roommates or by housing staff to match students with roommates and room assignments based on their preferences using auto-assign. In THDSS students may participate in a variety of online room selection and roommate selection processes based on their eligibility as designated by housing staff. THDSS is also the main portal for your students to view and electronically sign their Room Condition Reports, submit work orders, view their billing, see waiting list information, and more.

Manage Maintenance with Ease

The Housing Director features built-in maintenance management and damage billing tracking. You can track submitted work orders and assign them to maintenance staff. Easily run reports on and/or summarize maintenance history. Our acclaimed damage billing functionality allows you to effortlessly track and assign damage billing fees to individual students or to groups. Since the entire system is integrated, The Housing Director knows who lived in a particular hall or on a particular floor when an incident occurred, thus eliminating erroneous damage billing.

Timely Student Data Management

The Housing Director tracks all the student data you need for your day-to-day operations. Student data is imported from your campus information system and is updated on a scheduled or real-time basis. This means you are never working with stale data. Track individualized demographic data, billing history, notes & logs, meal plan information, student photos, and more. You can even create unlimited custom fields to keep track of other student data and use it in your housing processes.
