SPOTLIGHT

 

What if I want to live with an incoming freshman?

·      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. Once you have done this, please e-mail natalie.burick@sru.edu stating the name of the incoming freshman you would like to live with. The freshman student must also email Natalie Burick to let her know the same information. Please place in the subject line “roommate request.” 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 applicationand deposit. 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:
 

o  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
 

o  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.
 

o  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.
 

What if I want to live with an incoming transfer student?

·      If you want to live with an incoming transfer student, you may submit your housing agreement and pay your housing deposit as indicated for all current students. Once you have done this, please e-mail natalie.burick@sru.edu stating the name of the transfer student you would like to live with.  The transfer student must complete the same process, there is also a place on our transfer student housing request form for roommate requests. Please place in the subject line “roommate request.” You will not participate in any of the Room Selection Processes. We must receive verification of admission and a placement form from the transfer student in order to be able to consider them for placement. If we have not received BOTH of these things by June 1st, we will release the bed for general use. Residence Life cannot guarantee placement of transfer students.
