Roommate Placement has been sent!
Jun 01, 2018
Check your email, roommate placement for the Fall 2018 school year has arrived! All our new residents and current residents should have received their placement email. With move-in day around the corner, here at The Pointe we know roommates are very important to our future residents! Here are some tips we suggest that will ensure an easy move-in day and great year:
• Contact your roommates
o In your placement email, you will receive the name, email and phone number of your future roommate (s). We highly recommend reaching out to your future roommates prior to move-in day. This will help begin a healthy relationship with your future roommate(s).
• Avoid Social Media
o Very often future roommates look each other up on social media to see who their new roommate is. We highly suggest avoiding researching your roommate. Social media does not always depict who the person is. Reaching out via phone or meeting in person is the best way to establish a friendship with your new roommate. Do not judge a book by its cover.
• Talk about expectations
o Speaking with your future roommate about expectations of your new home will help alleviate any confusion and help establish healthy living boundaries. Are you a very neat person? Let your roommate know! Being open and honest about how you need your living environment to be will help your roommate understand your needs and help them to be accommodating to what you need from your future apartment.
o Sharing a living space is all about compromise. Be sure to listen to your new roommates needs and wants. Do not be afraid to compromise. Sharing can be difficult, however, if roommates have open communication and compromise it will ensure a healthy living environment.
• Ask Questions
o Get to know your roommate before move-in day. Ask your roommate questions about where they are from, what are their hobbies etc. Finding things in common will help you build a healthy relationship with your roommate! Roommates often become best friends!
• What should you bring?
o Have a conversation about what to bring on move-in day? No one wants to show up to an apartment and find out you each have your own toaster. Sharing is ideal when having roommates to help free some space in the apartment. Having a conversation of what the apartment needs and splitting the cost will help your wallet and will help the apartment to not be cluttered.
• Roommate Issues
o Should any conflict arise during the year. We are here to help! Our residence life team is trained to help mediate any roommate issues you have. Please feel free to contact our office if you have any concerns.

Cannot wait for you to move-in!
See you in August!
