It depends. Your residence hall assignment is impacted by the date you submitted your Contract for University Housing. Returning students choose their rooms on campus first, and Residence Life places new students in the remaining spaces, and in the spaces we reserve for new students (such as Towers East and Towers North, are reserved for all first-year students).
What is more important than hall placement is roommate matching. Data from students at Southeast and other colleges and universities show that roommate assignment, and the relationship between roommates, is a high predictor of satisfaction with the collegiate experience. Having a roommate with whom you can develop a positive relationship is integral to your success at Southeast. You will find we spend a lot of time helping you get acquainted with your roommate and your fellow residents - because it will help you to succeed.
