1. What if I do not have a person to live with next year?
Students who wish to live in a double room next year, but are having trouble finding a person to live with have a couple of options. First, students can like the BVU's Find a Roommate Facebook page in order to meet other students looking for roommates. Next, students can fill out a form at Hall-apalooza (Single/Double room selection) and have the Office of Residence Life assign them a roommate from a list of students currently at BVU. Lastly, students who want to chose a specific room to live in can do so by selecting to live with an incoming International student. This option can be completed by talking to the Director of Residence Life.
2. What if I want to live with an incoming student (Freshman or transfer)?
Students should notify the Director of Residence Life prior to Hall-apalooza (Single/Double room selection) on Sunday, April 24, 2016. The Director of Residence of Life will be able to confirm that the incoming student has been accepted to BVU and work with the student to select a room for the fall.
3. What if I want to live with an incoming international student?
Students interested in this option will see the Director of Residence Life during Hall-apalooza (Single/Double room selection) on Sunday, April 24, 2016 and the international student will be assigned to their room for the fall. Notification of their incoming roommate will occur over the summer.
4. What if I want an incoming transfer student to live with me in a Suite?
Students should notify the Director of Residence Life prior to the Suites application due date on April 8, 2016. The Director of Residence of Life will be able to confirm that the incoming student has been accepted to BVU, and inform the incoming student of his/her points for the Suites application.
5. What if I want to live in Swope Hall next year?
For the 2016-2017 academic year the University has made the decision to close Swope Hall. This decision has resulted in the change to the process in selecting single rooms throughout the rest of the residence halls on campus. For more information on single rooms, please see "Singles Room Draw" section of this website.
6. What if I am studying abroad/off campus all semester at an internship in the fall?
Students who will not be living on campus in the fall but plan to return the in spring do not need to go through the Room Draw process. These students are encouraged to make plans for their return to campus (i.e. plan to a take someone's spot when they leave campus in the spring to student teach/internship/study abroad). Students who will not be living on campus in the fall should contact the Director of Residence Life during the end of the spring semester to inquire about vacant rooms on campus and at that point the student can decide where they would like to live for the next academic year.
7. What if I want someone to apply to live in a room with me but that person is currently not on campus due to a medical leave?
All students currently on a medical leave from the University must receive permission to return to BVU prior to entering into the Room Draw process. Any student who attempts to enter into the Room Draw process and has not been approved to return BVU from a medical leave will not be eligible to go through the process and as a result will not be assigned a room to live in next year.
8. The roommate who I want to live with has a lower room draw point total than I do. Who's point total do we use if we want a double room?
Students should follow the roommate with the highest room draw point total to be assigned to a double room.
