Floor or Hall Groups
As a first-year student, you will be assigned to live in one of two types of floor or hall group:
- Coed by alternating room (men in one room, women in the next, with separate bathrooms)
- Single-gender hall group (men and women on distinct floors/wings with separate bathroom facilities).
For those who identify as a man or a woman, housing assignments will be based on gender identity, if you have provided that information on your application. For those who chose not to enter gender identity information, we will house based on the sex marker indicated on your application.
If you have indicated that you identify in a way other than man or woman, a representative from the University will reach out to discuss housing assignment options. If there have been any changes to your gender identity, or you have concerns about receiving a housing assignment based on the information you have provided, please contact the director of LGBTQ Resources at firstname.lastname@example.org or 570-577-3885 by June 9.
Residence Hall and Room Assignment
Your room assignment will be posted in mid-July in myHOME.
Residence hall assignments are made randomly within each class of students, except for those students participating in a special residential program such as a Residential College.
Most rooms are doubles. Others are triples, quads or singles. You will have an opportunity to indicate your preference for a type of housing assignment, but we cannot always meet everyone's preference.
First-year students are not able to submit roommate requests. In addition, first-year students from the same high school or hometown will not be assigned as roommates because learning to live with new acquaintances is an essential part of the residential learning experience.
Housing Accommodation Request
If you have a need for a housing accommodation based on a documented disability, complete the Housing Accommodation Request form and return it to the Office of Accessibility Resources (OAR) by June 9.
For accommodations questions, contact:
Director of the Office of Accessibility Resources
The University cannot guarantee that it will be able to meet accessibility housing requests. For the best consideration, it is essential to submit your request by the June 9 deadline.
