Information for Future Residents

Welcome to Roanoke College Residence Life & Housing!

The Residence Life & Housing staff would like to welcome you to the residence hall community at Roanoke College! Our goal is to make your residence hall living experience a significant and positive part of your college life and beyond. You will find the campus living environment to be an integral part of your experience and a valuable complement to your classroom activities. As a residential student you will have numerous opportunities to interact with other students, faculty, and staff and to enhance your social and interpersonal growth through shared living and learning experiences.

Mid-April you will complete an online housing profile which includes questions to help future roommates learn a little bit about you. You will also have the opportunity to request a specific roommate if you have someone in mind. If you don't have a particular roommate in mind, you will be able to search for a possible roommate based on interests and living habits. After the orientation sessions have concluded, based upon the date your deposit was received, you will select a room. You will be notified of your designated date and time to participate sometime in June with room selection taking place in early July. 

In the meantime, you should familiarize yourself with the content of these webpages for information that will help make your transition to campus living a smooth one. We strive to make every student's experience as satisfying as possible. We understand that moving to a new community will require an adjustment and we are here to help you be successful! Please let us know if you have questions or suggestions. We can be reached at or 540-375-2308. We look forward to meeting you soon!
