We assign students to rooms according to age and course. Whenever possible, roommates—and the hall as a whole—are similar in age and academic interest.
Most students live in double rooms, but some may be in singles or triples. We cannot guarantee a particular housing arrangement.
We discourage roommate requests because we find that students benefit from the opportunity to make new friends. Further, because of the variety of factors involved in making room assignments, we can rarely honor roommate requests.
