How are roommates assigned?
The Residence Life Office uses the information provided on the Resident Application Form as the basis of room assignment. On the application, each student will have an opportunity to identify traits such as type of music preferred, bedtime, wake up time, hobbies, activities, etc. The student will also be able to request either a double, compact double or triple on their application.
Will I get my preferences?
Preferences are granted on a first come, first served process.
Can I request a specific roommate?
Sure. The Residence Life Office will make all attempts to assign preferred roommates up until the time students are assigned to specific rooms. It is essential that both roommates request each other on their application form and that the applications are submitted well in advance.
When will I find out who my roommate is?
You will receive a notice from the Residence Life Office approximately 3 weeks prior to your arrival explaining what room you will be living in, who your roommate or roommates are, and in most cases how to contact your roommate(s).
Can I change rooms?
First, if there is a roommate conflict, the students should see their R.A. and he/she will attempt to resolve any conflicts between the two students. If a room change is still requested, you must wait until after the first two weeks of the semester. This time is needed for the Residence Life Office to get an accurate list of all residents residing in the halls and to assign students that are on the waiting list into available spaces. If a student would like a room change, here he/she should meet with their Resident Director.
