Single Room Requests
We currently have a large number of students requesting a small number of single or suite rooms. Therefore, we are unable to accommodate many of the requests for first semester. A few additional spaces may become available second semester depending on housing demands.
How Room Assignments are Made
The Office of Residence Life will make every attempt to honor the preferences listed on your housing agreement. However, this is not always possible. An outline of the room assignment procedure follows. Each spring, returning students (those currently residing in the residence halls) are given first preference for fall housing accommodations, which mostly fills the apartments and theme houses. Only a few select rooms are filled in Marian Hall or Bonaventure Hall by returning students. All of the remaining spaces are given to new students based upon their requests.
Marian Hall and Bonaventure Hall Assignments are Processed According to the Following
- Once a majority of new student agreements are received, the Office of Residence Life will determine which floors in Marian Hall and Bonaventure Hall will be male/female, based on numbers of requests and floor capacities.
- Date of receipt of the housing agreement by the Office of Residence Life will be considered in placing residents.
- Roommate requests from those who mutually wish to be paired together will be honored as much as possible.
- Residents will be paired based on a compatibility scale taken from the survey on the Housing and Meal Plan Agreement, (i.e., smoking preference, interests, lifestyle, etc.). After the match has been made, requests for floor preferences will be honored as closely as possible.
When Room Information is Sent
Housing assignments are sent in mid-July. Along with this information, you will receive the name, address, and phone number of your roommate and general check-in and Freshmen Orientation information.
