Why Have a Roommate
Having a roommate is a great way to meet people and stay connected. We’ve all heard the story of roommates meeting on move in day and becoming instant friends. Although the instant friend is not the case for every student on campus, so many of our students really enjoy having a roommate to share the real college experience with.
Roommates can help cut down on rent cost, be a study buddy, a great way to learn about other people or experience new adventures. We could tell you a ton of benefits to having a roommate but we thought our students might be better.
Read below to hear what some of our on-campus residents had to say about having a roommate and living on campus.

“My roommate is someone I can talk to you and it’s nice to never feel like I am by myself. Even though I have a private room, there is always an opportunity to talk with my roommates. All my roommates have different majors and interests we are all still friends and like watching TV shows together. One of my favorite parts of meeting my roommate is getting to meet all of her friends too."

“This is my second year living on campus and like my first year, I have had the fortune of having great roommates. I think that one of the greatest things about living on campus is the support you get from them. Each year I have had lasting friendships with my roommates and it has made my college experience a lot of fun. We are looking forward to living together next year in a suite."

TWICE THE FUN
They say the friends you make in college are the friends you make for life. Get a jump-start by choosing to live with a roommate. With a roommate you don’t have to navigate college life on your own. You’ll have someone to eat dinner with, go on late night runs to the store, and someone who can share living costs. It’s a win-win decision: good for your wallet and perfect for a meaningful social connection.
