GOOD THINGS COME IN 3′s!
In order to provide as many students as possible the opportunity to live on campus during the Murphy Hall renovation and because of the large first-year class, triple rooms were created in several residence halls. These rooms have been made available to all on-campus students, so sophomores, juniors, and seniors are living in triples as well.
FAQs about Triples
- How many first-year students will be in triple rooms?
At this time, the number is not yet known. This will be determined based on the size of the first-year class and the number of first-year students who want to live on campus. Based on the current number of students in the first-year class, it looks like one-third of the first-year class will be living in triples.
- Where are triples for first-year students located?
Triple rooms are in Campion and Sutowski Halls.
- I don’t want to live in a triple room. How can I avoid it?
The housing assignments are based on date and time of completion of housing agreement and the creation of the best roommate matches.
- If I only request one roommate, does that mean I am guaranteed a double room?
No. Housing assignments are based on date and time of completion of housing agreement. A roommate request does not supersede this.
- What will be in a triple room?
Each triple room will have three beds, three wardrobes, two desks, and two dressers. At move-in, each room will have two desks. However, students will be able to request a third desk, third dresser or both that will be delivered during the first week of classes.
- Is there a discount for living in a triple?
There is a $600/year discount for the triple room.
- What if my roommate(s) and I have issues?
All first-year students are required to complete a roommate agreement in order to help roommates communicate expectations and develop the roommate relationship. If there are concerns, your RA is trained to help you communicate these issues and work through them with your roommate(s). Your Area Coordinator may also assist in this process. It is our goal to help roommates learn through this process and develop better communication skills. If space is available, moving rooms is explored as a last resort option.
