    Hello, i was wondering hos likely it is you will get your apartment complex/room mates when arriving the morning of check-in.. has anyone every been rejected, and if so what did you do? I'm nervous because i don't have one of the first four check-in days and am not sure how quickly space fills.

    What Housing has allocated for any given day will vary.

    Those arriving on the first day won't have full selection of everything. Housing will have a certain allotment for that day that they can choose from.

    Same thing for every single day.

    As far as roommates go, that depends on a number of things.

    As a general rule of thumb, you need to be flexible.

    If you are steadfast on "I want this apartment in this complex with these people", they may have more difficulties with that request.

    Okay, that's fine. Is it stated how many people they can have in each apartment complex? I'm just nervous because Chatham seems to be the most popular and that is the one i want.

    They will present the options when you meet with them while checking in.

    The apartment complexes are shared with the international program and there are always people arriving/departing (although there is one complex dedicated to only International).

    The vacancies will fluctuate each week.

    If you want Chatham, then be open to any sized apartment there and they will probably be able to find you a spot.
