We invite you to complete this questionnaire by yourself and encourage you to be open and honest in your responses. Room and roommate assignments (all first-year students will have a roommate) are made on the basis of the information you provide, so it is important that you supply as much detail as possible. (Your responses on this form will be shared with members of the Residence Life staff.) Please complete the entire questionnaire. Housing assignments are sent in July, for students who return their questionnaire by June 3, 2013.
Specific Roommate Request
If you wish to request a specific person, perhaps someone you know from your current school, you must speak with that individual prior to submitting their name below. We require specific roommate requests to list one another as their preferred roommate, so they are aware of the request and in agreement. You may wish to talk through your living habits with one another prior to making this request so you can plan accordingly.
When submitting the name of your preferred roommate, you must get their full name (no nicknames, please). Contact us if you have questions about requesting a specific person as your roommate, but please note that you do not need to choose a specific roommate ahead of time. Most first-year students at Earlham do not request a specific roommate and are housed according to their general preferences.
