Housing Assignment Process
In July, the Assistant Director of Housing Operations will begin to process housing applications and match perspective roommates based on each student’s preferences from the housing application. If students have mutually requested one or more roommates, we will honor those requests and place those individuals together, based on their building preferences.

We try to honor individual preferences as much as possible, although we cannot guarantee that every student will get his/her first preference.

The Office of Residence Life and Housing will not make room assignment changes on the basis of discomfort/bias related to the confirmed or assumed identity of individuals. The Office of Residence Life and Housing strives to support students' realization of this portion of the Carroll Compact: I will value the human diversity and dignity of all people and will respect their ideas, opinions and traditions.


Living with one or more roommates can be one of the most exciting experiences you will have at Carroll. Living with roommates gives you the opportunity to meet new people, be a part of new experiences, and learn more about yourself and others around you. We want you to have a positive experience living with your new roommate(s).

Roommate Agreement
The roommate agreement is a tool that assists students in having successful roommate relationships. It's also a great reference point when roommates need to have constructive conversations about their living arrangements. All students are required to complete the roommate agreement. Have questions about the roommate agreement? Contact your Resident Assistant or Area Director.
