You can do one of two things: select a roomate yourself (either through the roomate notification system, or on your own), or wait until you arrive and get a random roomate

So, if you know who you want to room with, how do you go about getting them in your room? Because there are 6 of us, though potentially 8, that want to room together, but we were under the impression that we wouldn't be able to request each other until we got there. So how do we go about requesting each other before we get there?

You can choose one person (your actual roommate in your room with you) but your best bet if you have a group that you want to room with is to literally stand in line together at check-in.

Question Can you change move-in day?

So I'm guessing if you put in a request ahead of time for your actual roommate, they have to arrive on the same day as you? If the person I am hoping to room with has not even had her phone interview yet, therefore she won't be choosing a move-in day for a while, would I be able to change my move-in day if she can't get the same one as me?

Yes. You can change your check in day. Prob a cap on number of times, though.

I have HEARD that Chatham Square is the best... something about it being not the oldest but not the newest...therefore not the least expensive but not the most either...

Also the bus apparently picks up right in front of Chatham and you have to walk to Chatham if you live in a different one to catch a bus I think...

Oh definitely! If you go on youtube and search for Chatham Square, or any of the DCP apartments, you can see some tours people have given, and they're not too small!! Bigger than my dorm now, anyways... (Although I do have my own bedroom here)

I am worried about the roommate situation as well. I gotta pay my fees and pick a date still but I can't really go on the facebook page and try to meet people because I'm friends on it with a couple of my co-workers and I don't plan on telling them I'm leaving til sometime in or around December.

We should fill out like questionnaires on here to give ideas for potential roommates.

I am picking my date and the 15th is an option. So we could be potential roomies!

I found all my roommates through Facebook! There are TONS of groups on there for the DCP - groups by arrival date, role, application status, park, etc. etc. etc...

It's an easy way to find potential roomies, as well as just friends
