Roommate Matching and Housing Assignments

We are excited you have chosen to attend Millsaps College! You are ready to embark upon a journey that should lead to many rewarding experiences. The Office of Student Life takes seriously the responsibility of helping students pursue those experiences. Among our initial attempts to provide such assistance is our work to help you adjust to college and to Millsaps. An important component of this adjustment is your housing experience.

We feel our first obligation is to provide you with information necessary for making good decisions. This is the purpose of this packet. All assignments are based on information provided by the students. The integrity and thoughtfulness of your responses are the major component of the roommate matching and roommate assignment process. It is for this reason that we ask you (not your parents) to spend some time reflecting on the responses you provide.

Below we have provided a few sample descriptions from past preference sheets. They are intended to provide you with ideas of the issues that may be important in describing yourself and your "ideal" roommate.


List and describe your personality characteristics:

  1. strong student; study before play but enjoy both;
  2. strong evangelical Christian; Republican/Conservative;
  3. non-drinker;
  4. enjoy the arts, social work, and animals;
  5. strong family ties;

I like my room to be neat, as well as my clothes (closet) and make-up area. I do have a desire to do well in my studies, so I don’t want a roommate that will make fun of my studiousness. I also like to stay busy and out of my room (unless studying)

Friendly; sometimes quiet; like almost any music (except country); like company but sometimes like to be alone; somewhat neat, but can't promise that my part of the room will always be immaculate (it will be casual)

Friendly, outgoing talkative, athletic, like to enjoy life to the fullest

Other preferences or personality characteristics which would be helpful in making your roommate assignment:

I would like for my roommate to have a desire to keep the room as neat and organized as possible. Also, I think that if I were paired with another person not from the Jackson area, we could both learn to adapt at the same pace,

I would like a roommate with similar characteristics to my own. I'm really picky about having other people in my room, besides that I'm pretty easy-going.

I plan on experiencing college. I would like a roommate that will also like to get out and try different things.


Please remember that in the residence halls, and possibly later in life, you do not just have a roommate, you are a roommate. For many, sharing a room is a new or different experience. Your roommate can be someone to share opinions, feelings, interests, and good times. However, sharing a room can sometimes result in a few problems or misunderstandings. Individuals who usually get along well have spent time working at it. The work of building a good roommate relationship includes open and honest communication.

Additionally, you need to remember that people's habits change as they move into new environments. The person who might have lived under an early to bed, early to rise philosophy in high school may change that habit in college. Whenever this situation arises, it is best to work with your roommate and your Resident Assistant (RA) to find common ground.


Housing Contract

Please read the Millsaps Housing Contract and check the box below to indicate that you have read and agree to abide by the guidelines and policies outlined. This checkbox is required before the form can be submitted.

I have read and agree to abide by the terms of the 2016- 17 Millsaps Housing Contract and other Residence Life policies listed in Major Facts. I understand that assignments are made without regard to age, race, color, religion, sexual orientation, veteran status, or national origin and that once housing assignments are made, changes will not be considered until after the second week of school and must be approved by the Office of Residence Life.

If you have additional questions, do not hesitate to contact our office at (601) 974-1200.
