All juniors will have one or two roommates at NCSSM. You will be carefully matched based on your answers on the Roommate Preference Form. You will receive an email with instructions on how to log in to Blackbaud to view your residence hall and room assignment in mid-July. 

Feel free to review the following resource to get a better idea of room layouts. Please note that while we provide general measurements for each residence hall, each room is unique and variations exist in room dimensions. You should use these measurements as a general guide only.

While we realize that students desire to arrange and decorate their rooms in order to make themselves comfortable, we also recognize the need to set limits for reasons of health, safety, and the conservation of the limited resources here on campus. We, therefore, ask that you adhere to these guidelines as you arrange and decorate your rooms.
