To be paired with a preferred roommate (a parent/guest or another student), both parties must request the other person.
No Roommate Request
If you select a double occupancy room and don’t submit a roommate request, students will be paired with another student of the same gender and parents/guests will be paired with another parent/guest of the same gender.
Breakfast is included with your SOAR accommodations. Most mornings*, a hot, fresh meal is served at a dining unit in or near your residence hall.
Each meal has a variety of hot entrée selections, including vegetarian and healthy choices.
*On days when breakfast is not available in your residence hall, a coupon will be provided for breakfast in an open dining unit.
Lunch and dinner options are often available in many of our dining venues. The staff at the hall desk can answer any questions you have about meal times and locations.
Guests not staying in University Housing can purchase breakfast with cash or a credit card. Please note: Cash is only accepted at the Gordon Avenue Market and the Four Lakes Market. All dining venues accept credit cards.
