Every attempt is made to have incoming freshmen in the Scholars Program housed together in one building within one of three Residential Communities. Scholars living on campus who wish to request a specific student to room with, must be aware of the following: Both students must be University Scholars, and both students must be assigned to the same Residential Community. This is a requirement of the Program in order to increase the community-building aspect of the Program, and we do not allow exceptions to this requirement. Depending upon the availability of space, it's possible that a student outside of the Program may be assigned to room with a Scholar if the only availability left is in the building that the University Scholars are assigned to. As further housing application information becomes available closer to May, please pay attention to deadlines and details on when to apply, how to request a roommate, or how best to select a space with a desired roommate.
