Campus Life & Student Affairs
A roommate can become a new friend, a study buddy, or just an acquaintance. To get a roommate, fill out your housing questionnaire. If you have someone already in mind, just list each other on the bottom of your forms and return them to our office. If you’re a current student, just go with that person to housing selection in the spring semester.
We understand that sometimes personality conflicts occur, and when they do, you have options: talk with your roommate and see if an agreement can be reached. Your resident assistant (RA) or residence director (RD) can offer suggestions about to how to begin the conversation. If no agreement is reached, visit your RA to discuss the issue(s). If no solution is found, visit your RD for information about mediation or possibly moving to a new room.
If you don’t have a roommate, or if your roommate moves out mid-semester, you have three options:
- Notify our office and we will assign you a roommate.
- Find a roommate yourself. If you have a friend that doesn’t have a roommate, you can move in with him or her, or allow that person to move in with you.
- Pay to keep the room to yourself. If your roommate moves out, you can choose to pay the under-occupied room fee and not have a roommate. This fee differs by room size and is a per-semester charge.
If you need to have a single:
- If there is a medical reason that requires you to live in a single room, send documentation to our academic support office.
- If you just prefer to live alone, we will try to accommodate this request. However, singles are granted on a first-come, first-served policy.
