In early August, the Office of Residential Life will send you an email with information about your roommate. Before you move to campus, we suggest that you contact your roommate so you can get to know one another and coordinate what each of you will bring to the room e.g. who is bringing a television, a microwave, or a refrigerator.
You also can go to www.facebook.com/uofhorl, which is our Residential Life Facebook page, where you can connect with your residential area's Facebook page. These pages provide great opportunities for you to meet your roommate and other students living in the same residential area.
