How am I Assigned A Roommate?

In keeping with the spirit of The College, diversity is a core value of the Office of Residence Life. Our housing assignments are made without regard to race, color, religion/creed, disability, national/ethnic origin, sexual orientation or any other condition established by law.

The College of Saint Rose recognizes the benefit to living on campus and becoming part of a community that encourages both academic and co-curricular growth; part of this growth includes an openness to differences and a willingness to learn about others in a supportive environment.

What if I want to Request a Roommate or a specific building?

You have the ability to request a specific roommate OR a specific building location (i.e. Brubacher, Lima, or Golub Halls) through MyHousing.

You may request only ONE – either a roommate or a building location.

Roommate requests must be reciprocal and are typically housed in Brubacher Hall.

All requests must be entered no later than July 21, 2013 at 11:59pm
We will do our best to honor as many requests as is possible.
