As the beginning of the year approaches, the Residence Life and Housing team grows more eager to get to know you! In the meantime, please review all the information below thoroughly, as many of your questions about housing and meal plans will be answered.
Hall Placement: You have completed the Transfer Student Housing Intention form to let us know of your community preferences. We will use these to place you into a housing assignment in the next few weeks. Please note, for billing purposes, your housing assignment currently reflects "Generic Housed" and will be replaced soon with your actual hall and room assignment.
Roommate Selection and Assignments: We take great care to match students with roommates based on their Personal Profile information. When it comes to living with other students, you may be surprised to find someone with very different interests can still share many of the same living traits that are important in a good roommate, for example similar sleep or cleanliness habits. For this reason, we urge you to approach living with roommates with a positive outlook and not to jump to conclusions about the viability of matches prior to trying them out.
Interested in looking for a roommate? For those interested in selecting their own roommate(s), please follow these steps by Monday, August 8th at 5pm to review the personal profiles of other incoming transfer students. Most transfer students find it helpful when we place them with returning student roommates who can offer assistance with transitioning to Redlands, this is a way to select a roommate if you wish.
Room Assignment: Once the roommate selection and assignment process is completed at the beginning of August, you will be assigned a room with any roommates you matched with or those that were selected on your behalf. A room confirmation email will be sent to you mid-August with further move-in instructions.
Meal Plan: All students living on-campus are required to have a meal plan and new students have initially been assigned the 19 Meals Per Week (19MPW) meal plan. To view your current meal plan or to make a change, please visit the MyRedlands Housing Portal by September 2nd. After this date, the next opportunity to make an adjustment to your meal plan is leading up to the beginning of the next semester. Visit the Harvest Table website for more information about meal plans and rates.
Move-in: Move-in for New Student Orientation on Wednesday, August 24th is by appointment only. Instructions will be provided in mid-August for students to sign-up for their arrival time. Please note, students with a balance due on their student account, as well as any other outstanding items from the Transfer Student Checklist, will not be permitted to move into their housing assignment until settled with Student Financial Services and/or the applicable offices.
Should you have any questions, please email Residence Life and Housing at RLH@redlands.edu.
