First, providing honest and accurate information on the housing form is paramount. Avoid having your parent fill out your housing form. Second, understand that having a roommate is a great opportunity for growth! You will learn how to communicate with and respect another individual in a way that you might not have done before. And while it may be a little strange and difficult at first, some of life's deepest friendships are made by going through this process.
As for not getting along with your roommate, Residential Life will always listen to your concerns. We have an established roommate conflict process in place with full support from Resident Assistants once you live on campus.
