Transfer and first time students' housing forms are placed in date order by the date the Residence Life office receives their room deposit. If an upperclassman requests a particular incoming student as his/her roommate, that student will be placed immediately. However, if the Director of Residence Life does not have a match to the requested name, the slot will be filled at the Director of Residence Life's discretion.
All first-time college students are required to live in the traditional residence halls during fall semester. Incoming students' roommate requests will be granted as long as the form of the requested person is in the housing office and space is available.
Next, the incoming students will be given room assignments by date order and availability. All aspects of the housing form questionnaire, logistics, availability, and status will be taken into account.
