Tips for Successful Triple Living

"My advice is to talk about everything beforehand. Connect with your roommates through e-mail or Facebook and establish who is bringing what early. My roommates were absolutely the best. We had fun together and even won the residence hall Halloween door decorating contest. We are returning to a triple for our sophomore year!"
—Lorna Vaughen ’19

"As advice for any future students in triples: try to be honest and straightforward with each other as much as possible. I was lucky to be good friends with my roommates, but you just have to cooperate and coexist, that's the important part."
—Katharine Journeay ’19

Tips for successful triple living:

  • Connect: Touch base with your roommates before you move in, and figure out who’s bringing which items.
  • Set Up: Your furniture is moveable—it doesn’t have to remain the way you find it when you arrive—so organize your space the way that works best for you and your roommates.
  • Divide and Conquer: Each room has three desks and chairs, two dressers and two closets. Discuss as a group how to equally divide the space.
  • Communicate: Be open with your roommates about your expectations, and discuss your daily schedules in order to be on the same page.
  • Get Involved: You won’t be spending all of your time in your room! Get involved with the many clubs, organizations and activities that take place on campus.
