The campus guidelines require all residential facilities to maximize space. Is is an obligation of the Housing and Registration Committee to therefore bunk roomates in pairs for each room. Should a student end up in a room that is singular, at no fault of their own, the student can choose to:
- The right to read and study free from undue interference in one’s room. Unreasonable noise and other distractions inhibit the exercise of this right.
- Remain in the room until they receive a new room assignment or a roomate is added to their room. This roomate may not necessarily match original RoomSync characteristics. If assignment to another room is necessary, every effort is made to keep the student being moved in the same hall and on the same floor.
The decision to allow students to keep the single room for spring semester will be determined by the need for spaces and will be announced as soon as possible. Students whose roommate leaves at the end of fall semester are not guaranteed a single room for spring semester. It is important that the room be prepared to receive a new roommate before the student leaves for winter break. Decisions regarding availability of the room as a single will not be announced until approximately two weeks after the beginning of spring semester. If space is available, a Double-As-Single Room offer will be emailed to the email address provided on the student's application. If the Double-As-Single Room offer is not accepted, the student will be subject to the aforementioned Room Policy. Forced consolidation will not occur for summer housing unless the housing needs require such a move.
