Your Assignment/Roommate Information
Your Room Assignment
Students who submitted their contracts before April 1 will be notified of their assignments June 15. Students who submitted after April 1 will be notified of their assignments at the end of July.
A student's relationship with their roommate can be one of the best parts of the college experience. Some students think they need to be best buddies with their roommate. In reality, roommates don't always end up as best pals. Friendship isn't the main factor in developing a good roommate relationship. Respect and a willingness to communicate clearly are the keys. Be realistic about your expectations, and connect through compromise.
Room Freeze/Room Changes
No room changes will be made during the first few weeks of school while everyone is getting settled. Room changes may occur at any time during the academic year (subject to the above limitation). By federal law and University policy, room assignments and room changes cannot be made on the basis of race, color, religion, disability, national or ethnic origin, or sexual orientation. If your roommate moves out or you wish to change rooms, the Residence Director is the person to see.
The most frequent reason for room change requests are initial feelings of incompatibility with a roommate. These usually disappear when at least one roommate makes an effort to communicate. Take the initiative to talk about these things with your roommate, early on. Almost all roommate relationships can be successful, but only with genuine effort.
If you'd like help with this, ask your RA for ideas. But, most of all, be the roommate who tries to communicate caringly and honestly, as early in the relationship as possible. Remember, your roommate is probably new to having a roommate, too. So, be patient.Roommate Relationships:
