Roommate Assignments

If a roommate is not requested (see below), Summer College – On Campus follows Syracuse University’s lead when it comes to housing assignments. The housing office assigns a residence hall and roommate for Summer College – On Campus students, taking into consideration any special living opportunities and mutual roommate requests indicated on the Summer College – On Campus application. The housing assignment system is designed to promote a fair and equitable system for all Summer College – On Campus students that is inclusive and promotes students from different backgrounds to live together.

Request a Roommate

Summer College – On Campus students may request a roommate by filling out the “Roommate Request” field on their SlideRoom application. Please note that both parties must separately request each other as their roommate.

If you have already submitted your application without a roommate request but wish to add one, email precollege@syr.edu with the name of the student you would like to be roomed with along with the other student’s course name. The subject line should read “Roommate Request.” Roommate requests will be considered if both parties separately request each other as their roommate.
