As an incoming member of the freshmen class you will live in one of the six Residential Colleges during your freshmen year.
Residential College Assignment
Your class is separated into six sections so that each section reflects the demographic profile of your incoming class as a whole. Each section is then randomly assigned to one of the six Residential Colleges.
After your name is assigned to a Residential College, the Residential College staff as well as Housing and Real Estate Services Department staff review the Residential College Interest/Activity Sheet you filled out online with your Housing and Dining form. Your roommate assignment is made based on the content of the information provided.
Residential College/Roommate Assignment Notification
Your roommate and Residential College assignment is contained in an e-mail sent to your Princeton e-mail address in the summer before your arrival at Princeton. Check the announcements section of your Welcome Class site for the exact date of the e-mail. You will need your NetID and LDAP password to access your e-mail account. Questions about your NetID and LDAP password can be answered by the OIT Help Desk. The e-mail will also direct you to a link to access your housing and dining contract. You will be asked to electronically accept the contracts prior to the deadline stated in the e-mail notification message.
