The purpose of this editorial is to provide details on what a roommate group is, how a roommate group is created, and the importance of a roommate group.
What is a Roommate Group?
- A roommate group is a virtual link between students. It allows new and current students to select a specific person(s) to room with for the school year.
How big is a Roommate Group?
- It can be as few as 2 and as many as 8, depending on the apartment/suite/room you want to select.
Roommate Group FAQ's:
- Roommate groups are not required. You will still be able to select housing without a roommate group.
- You will be able to create and edit roommate groups during the housing selection process, but doing so will affect your selection time and room options.
- IMPORTANT: All members must request and accept each other.
- Your selection time will be calculated by the number of credit hours of each roommate and averaging those together.
