We all wondered if roommate horror stories are true, and the reality is, they can be! Here are a few tips to get all of you prospective students prepared for selecting a roommate…
1. New/entering students are able to choose from our three residence halls on 27th street: Alumni, Coed, and Nagler. Research the halls, and figure out which one best fits your preferences.
2. Selecting roommate(s) increases the chances of choosing your preferred accommodation. It is to your advantage to have the roommate with the earliest selection date/time choose a room type. So don’t be afraid to reach out on Facebook after you are confirmed for housing!
3. Once a room type is selected, all mutually selected roommates will automatically be assigned. Students eligible for room selection can use Advanced Roommate Search to find other students seeking roommates. Use of this feature is strongly encouraged as there is an advantage to selecting roommate(s). If you do not choose a roommate, one will randomly be assigned.
4. Be sure to completely fill out your MyHousing assessment that will gather information about your living preferences to help find a right match for you.
