Roommate assignment and notification day is almost here! This is one of the most anticipated days of the summer. Freshmen, this means you get to find out who your roommate will be for the upcoming academic year. For students returning to on campus housing, this is a time for you to verify that your roommate is correct and your housing is the housing you chose during housing selection. If you picked a random roommate you will also be able to find out who your roommate will be.
Be sure to keep checking your campus email account to make sure you don’t miss your notification.
Once you receive your roommate assignment, it is best to get in contact with your roommate! In addition to an introduction, you may wish to discuss your future living situation: who is bring what to your residence hall or apartment and discuss other living preferences and get to know each other.
Also in your roommate assignment will be instructions for the online pre-check in which must be done upon arriving on campus on move in day. Remember, completing pre-check in does not mean you don’t need to check in on move in day! If you do not check in upon your arrival your card will not allow you access to your residence hall or apartment.
After you complete pre-check in you will be able to access your roommate assignment via the Express Check-In site. Important information found once logged onto Express Check-In includes:
- Date and time required to check in
- Name and address of your check in station
- Name and address of your building of residence
- Roommate contact information
- Mailbox number and combination
Once again, make sure to check your UWGB campus email account to access all housing and roommate assignments.
