A set of guidelines (PDF) will be provided to each room when you arrive on campus. The rules include:
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.
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. However, no student is required to move if resolution cannot be made. We encourage you to contact a staff member if you have reached an impasse during your conversations (Note: staff will not facilitate the discussion until a prior conversation has been had).
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:
