Roommate Matching

How were my roommate and I matched? 

Compatible Lifestyles 
The staff matches roommates and suitemates based on the general lifestyle criteria listed below. We believe that these basic habits are important areas of roommate compatibility. 

Diverse Individuals 
We ask that you prepare yourself to be accepting and respectful of others in your living area and bring with you to the Trinity community an enthusiasm to interact with all types of people. The Trinity University Residential Life staff believes in providing a diverse living environment within our first year residence halls. To foster this kind of environment, we will not accept specific roommate and/or hall requests nor will we make room assignment changes based on these issues. 

Successful Roommates
In our experience, the best roommates are those who practice communication, courtesy and compromise. Regardless of your individual habits and quirks, these interpersonal skills will make for a positive environment in your room and prepare you well for life. Start practicing communication, courtesy and compromise with your roommate this summer as soon as you receive their contact information with your assignment.

After Your First Year,
students will select their roommates as they move into Sophomore College and then into the Junior/Senior living areas.
