Questions to ask a potential roommate

Talk about your schedules – How early do you go to bed? What time do you wake up? When and where do you typically like to study?

Talk about lifestyle habits – How often do you like to invite company over? What are your planned involvements on campus (clubs, athletics, extra-curricular activities)? Do you keep your room tidy or messy?

Talk about your values – Share what is important to you and learn what is important to them.


Ask in-depth and thoughtful questions to choose the best roommate for you.

When asking questions, also have your own response in mind. It’s important to know how everyone feels about a topic.

After you found your squad:

During the week of July 6 – July 13 you can Select your roommate or roommate group within the housing software.


“Living On” is an event hosted by Residence Life during Summer Orientation and Registration (SOAR). This event is important in the process of selecting your on-campus housing. We will review housing options and styles, and then provide you with information on how to select your roommate, room, and community following SOAR.
