The college roommate experience can be one of the most gratifying yet sometimes trying times in your college career. You may encounter values and concepts that you never knew existed.
For many, this will be the first time you have had to share their space. This sharing will require that you learn how your behaviors and actions both positively and negatively affect others.
We encourage each student to open his or her mind to themselves and others. As with all things of worth, it will take effort, initiative and understanding.
Learning how to establish a relationship with another is essential knowledge for any career or activity.
For Fall, most new students receive their roommates' names and contact information in June. For Spring, most students receive their roommates' names and contact information in early February. Roommates should contact one another and begin discussing how they intend to share the space in the room as well as what they hope their relationship will be.
It is especially important that students who are not arriving at the same time have a plan for how the room will be set up and how space will be shared.
Standard triple rooms furnishings:
*See your room's specific floor plan (available from the tour page for your building) for information on what furniture is in your room.
If you arrive earlier than your roommates, please be considerate of the room arrangements you discussed before move-in.
As a team, you and your new roommates may decide to share the space as we suggest or come up with your own configuration. Either way, it must be done with the agreement of all three students. If there are any questions or if you need assistance in negotiating the shared space, please contact your resident assistant (RA) or the residence hall coordinator (RHC) of your building.
Additionally, students may opt to order a loft from bedloft.com to maximize space.
