If you want to live with an incoming freshman, you may submit your housing agreement and pay your housing deposit as indicated for all current students (before February 5). Once you have done this, please e-mail email@example.com stating the name of the incoming freshman you would like to live with. Instead of participating in the Current Student Room selection process, your name will be put on a placement list and held until we receive the freshman student’s housing agreement, preference sheet and deposit (their preference sheet must indicate that they would like to room with you because all roommate requests must be mutual. Once it is time to make the assignment for the freshman student (based on first come first serve basis), you will be assigned with the freshman student you requested.
Things you should be aware of when requesting an incoming freshman student:
- Freshman will most likely be assigned to a double style occupancy room – this means a Double or Triple room in the Traditional Halls OR a Double Studio OR Double Suite in the Residential Suites – therefore YOU will most likely be assigned to one of these rooms
- Freshman are only allowed to make ONE roommate request – therefore, we can only make our best effort to accommodate the current student’s name that is indicated in the freshman’s preferences since roommate requests must be mutual.
- If you or the freshman student you are requesting is applying for an LLC (Living-Learning Community) you must make sure that you BOTH apply for the same LLC and are approved in order for it to be honored. Roommate requests take precedence over all other requests.
