You will be notified about your roommate in early August with a nonspecific housing assignment. In mid-August you will receive your final, detailed housing assignment.
We suggest that you contact your roommate before moving in to get acquainted and to coordinate what each of you will share and bring to the room, e.g. whose bringing a television, a microwave, or a refrigerator. You don't want to end up with two of the same thing for one room.
In your housing assignment letter, the Office of Residential Life will provide you with your roommate's email address and phone number. Many students also have found their roommates on Facebook and other social media outlets. You also can go to www.facebook.com/uofhorl, which is our official Residential Life Facebook page, where you can connect with your residential area's Facebook page. These pages are a good tool for you to meet your roommate and other students living in the same residential area.
