      Roomlist was designed with student privacy foremost in mind. First, all
      information is accessible only to users with full GMU credentials.
      When your account is created, you have the option to make your housing
      information viewable to your floor (the default choice), your entire
      building, or campus-wide. When you choose to make your housing information
      viewable campus-wide, it is also viewable to non-resident students.
