One of the most anticipated days of the summer is ahead: roommate assignment and notification day! Be sure to keep checking your campus email to ensure that you don’t miss it.

If you’re an incoming freshman you might be unsure of what this means. Arriving soon will be your roommate assignment which holds detail of your roommate for the upcoming school year as well as your housing assignment.  After receiving your roommate assignment you are going to want to get in contact with your future roommate to begin planning for the school year: get to know each other, who is bringing what for your dorm room, do you want to coordinate dorm decor?

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.
