If you are currently living alone in a room for two residents (or there is a vacant space in your triple bedroom apartment), or if your current roommate is not returning for Spring Semester, you will be assigned a new roommate. So, before you leave for break, make sure that a bed, a desk, a desk chair, and closet space are available for your new roommate and that your room is clean. Failure to do so may result in a minimum cleaning charge of $30.00 and a conduct hearing. The Department of Residential Life will notify you by e-mail over the break when you are assigned a roommate.
If you have questions, please contact the Department of Residential Life, 111 Carkoski Commons, 507-389-1011, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
