    What if I don’t get along with the roommate I’m assigned to?
    On the application form, numerous questions are asked to help in matching roommates, and students may request a specific roommate, too. Every possible effort is made to accommodate those requests and preferences. Complete information is necessary to make the best possible roommate selection.

     

    Can I request a change to my room assignment? Once room assignments have been issued, it is very difficult to make changes to these assignments. Making one change to meet the needs of a student after the assignments have been issued, may affect up to three or four other people. However, if you are very concerned about your room assignment, you make submit a Room Assignment Change Request form.

    In addition to the room furniture, Hendrick House provides each student with a mattress pad, telephone, toilet paper, and wastebasket.
