Single rooms are available in East, Granskou, Stavig, and Tuve Halls. All students wishing to live in a single room for the upcoming academic year must apply.
During the academic year, single rooms can be requested through each Hall Director. Any change during or at the end of each semester must be cleared by each building's Hall Director. Visit with your hall staff if you are interested in a single during the current academic year.
All current third year students who apply for a single room prior to the deadline will be granted a single room for the coming year.
We are working to grant single requests for all current second year students who want one. However, depending on occupancy, some current second year students may be placed on a waiting list. Our waiting list will be determined by drawing based on the applications received by the deadline. Single rooms will be granted as space becomes available.
Please note that current first year students will not likely be granted a single room for their second year, though they may still apply. If space allows, we will grant singles to second-year students as they appear on our waiting list.
DOSO (Dean of Students Office) Single
The college recognizes that special needs may necessitate a single room for students whose challenges may affect their ability to live in community. For this reason, a small number of Residence Hall rooms are set aside as singles at the beginning of each academic year to respond to permanent or temporary needs. We call these DOSO (Dean of Students Office) Singles.
Visit DOSO Singles for more information about eligbility and application for a DOSO Single.
Please complete a Single Room Application (Online Form) if you are interested in a single room for the upcoming year. Applications must be received by 5 pm March 8, 2013 to be approved or included in the drawings for our waiting list. Any applications received after 5 pm on March 8, 2013 will be wait listed in the order in which they are received.
You do not need to apply for a single room if you are planning to live in East Hall. East Hall rooms are billed as double rooms, even though most are single occupancy. However, we strongly encourage applying for a single room just in case, as East Hall rooms often fill quickly on Room Selection Day. If approved, you would also be able to select a single room in Tuve, Granskou, or Stavig Halls in the event East Hall is unavailable.
If you have been wait-listed for a single room, the Housing Office will contact you with any change in your status. Please be aware that spaces shift throughout the spring, summer, and fall, so approval may still be possible for some. However, students on a single room waiting list will need to plan to be in a double room with a roommate until approval has been granted. It is expected that anyone who is not approved for a single room will live with a roommate (except in East Hall single rooms).
Should you receive approval after the Room Selection process is completed (mid-April), it is likely that your roommate will also be approved for a single room. Should your roommate choose to decline single room approval, they will need to find a new roommate and notify the Housing Office of that change as soon as possible.
