The selection of accommodation for new students will begin in late spring/early summer. Students have the opportunity to choose their space and roommate. Look back in March for more information. Roommates must communicate with each other. An ideal opportunity for this communication arises at the beginning of the year, when the staff of the residence distributes the colocation agreement forms. These agreements are at the origin of a debate on topics that often cause conflicts between roommates, such as hours of sleep and learning, the use of stereo and television, guests, etc. We strongly recommend that you take the time to discuss these issues with your roommates at the beginning of the year in order to avoid future difficulties. For assistance in this process, please contact your ra or resident director. Each room is equipped with cable. Each room is also equipped with a roommate Ethernet socket for internet.
In addition, we have wireless Internet (Wi-Fi) in each residence. If the place does not allow a student to buy their room as a private room, it is always possible to get a new roommate. For this reason, it is essential that half of the room is clean and ready to receive a student. Your joy of living in residence depends largely on the consideration you and your roommates show you. If there is one factor that is the most important determinant of roommates` success, then that factor is communication. If you don`t have a roommate in mind, you can use matching software to see other profiles of students who have scored similarly to you when it comes to roommate profile questions. Students will have the opportunity to choose their favorite roommate when they choose their place in early June. The EKU has a residency obligation.
If your student is under 21, has less than 60 credit hours, and does not live with you and within a 50-mile radius of the university, they will be charged for campus life. Students who wish to be exempted from the residency requirement can submit an application form for housing exemption in case of housing. Due to current space restrictions, Eastern Kentucky University`s private spaces are no longer an option. For the upper class, the Grand Campus and South Hall offer private spaces for students. Unfortunately, the number of students we assign does not offer us the opportunity to show their room to every student who arrives.
