All incoming freshmen who apply to live on-campus by application deadlines are guaranteed housing. However, because of the heavy demand for on-campus housing, it is necessary for the University to initially assign some students to extended housing (triples). Assignment in a tripled room is intended to be a temporary arrangement. Students in tripled rooms will be offered a permanent space based on availability and the student’s priority (based on deposit date) as soon as permanent spaces are identified.
We consider all three students in a tripled room as permanent residents, so no one student is regarded as the "extra" person. Historically, most students assigned to an extended housing room are offered a permanent space before the end of the Fall Semester. However, there have been years when we have ended the Fall semester with students still in triple rooms.
Triple rooms are the same size as a double room. In triple rooms, two beds are bunked, and a third bed will stand lofted alone. Three closets/wardrobes, three dressers and three desks and chairs will be provided. Each room will also include one wastebasket, and two Ethernet connection port (every residence hall is equipped with wireless internet). You may want to consider this as you begin to pack for your move onto campus. It might be best to pack some of your belongings in plastic storage containers that can be stored under your bed and easily accessed or moved in configuration.
