You and your roommates could each win a $75 ASC gift card! Once you move in snap a photo and Tweet to @CortlandResLife with #threetimesthefun #SUNYCortlandtriples #tripledfall2015 by September 13. You'll be awarded points if your photo...
A total of 20 points is possible. All photos with top scoring points will be assigned a number and a random number generator will determine first and second place winners.
Inappropriate photos will be deleted and you will not be considered. Winners will be determined on Monday, September 14. Initial winner notification will be done through Twitter to the account of the person who posted the photo, where directions for contacting Residence Life and Housing staff through SUNY Cortland email will be provided. First and second place will be awarded.
If you arrive earlier than your roommates, please contact them to discuss the rules and determine which bed you will have.
If you would like a third desk and chair, you can ask your residence hall director (RHD) to place a work order for them after everyone has arrived and unpacked.
As a team, you and your new roommates may decide to change the rules, but it must be done with the agreement of the three tripled students. If there are any questions regarding the tripling rules, please contact your resident assistant (RA) or the RHD of your building.
The date your admissions deposit is received and the specific housing preferences you requested are the determining factors for tripling.
The housing staff has been de-tripling and will continue to do so until all triples have been offered the chance to de-triple.
Last semester, of the 56 rooms offered the chance to de-triple, only 20 rooms chose this option. The remainder (the majority) stayed tripled.
We will make every effort to keep students in the same residence hall they are in, but we will inform tripled students of openings in other buildings.
Don’t bring everything for the entire year opening day; wait and see what space is available. Have someone come visit to bring your winter clothes in October. Contact your roommates to discuss who is bringing items that can be shared.
Students will work with their RHD to make this decision together. If the students cannot decide, the RHD will. Students who decline the de-triple space will not receive the triple room rebate from that date on.
If two of the roommates requested each other on their housing forms, the third person in the room will be the person designated to move. However, they are not required to move.
Students in a triple receive a 25 percent rebate of the room charge for the number of days they are tripled. The triple room rebate is issued after the students have been de-tripled.
Students in a triple will be expected to complete a roommate agreement form. Be prepared to discuss topics such as guests, TV, studying, music and sharing.
Discuss who will bring the following:
“Being in a triple has been a great experience!!!” - Kellyanne Russ
“Living in a triple as a freshman made my year three times as fun!!!” - Nicole Lipscomb
