Every attempt is made to place students in their first choice hall with their requested roommate(s). Room assignments are based on information provided by students on their housing applications. While there is no perfect method of matching roommates, such variables as personal habits, major, and hobbies are used to match roommates.
If you've never shared a room, you should adopt a positive attitude about the experience. Roommates don't always have to be best friends and it's possible to have an strong relationship with your roommate without having common interests. Open communication is the key to any successful relationship.
Room changes are allowed, but only after October 1st. However, a room change is the last option pursued only after roommates have made a sincere effort to adjust to differences. Please contact your RA or hall staff if you are having roommate difficulties.
