I am going to UP as a freshman in the fall and got put in supplemental housing because I enrolled close to the deadline. What are my chances of getting out of supplemental housing and moving into a regular room by the end of the fall semester?
@Notthereyet: I'm not sure there is a limit, but usually they see how many times you've taken it. Depends on the application I think.
Syoung2: Personally, I wanted to go to a large university when I was looking. I went to a relatively large high school, so I think I just got used to being one of a large number of students. That being said, I love the fact that you can spend four years somewhere and meet new people basically every day. More so than smaller schools IMO, it's easier to constantly meet new people, which is a huge plus for the size. It can be a pain in the butt when you're trying to walk somewhere quickly (or if you ever need to drive on campus, yikes), but the campus is so spread out that, to me, it wasn't a huge deal.
@moonrise5: If you know already that you want to leave the supplemental, you can call housing, I'm pretty sure there's some sort of waiting list to get off. I'd say the sooner you get on that, the better your chances are of getting out.
Thanks, I will get to that ASAP.
Also, does anyone know what ra supplemental is?
I saw it on eboard room exchange under the type of room and was wondering what it is. I mean, it's called supplemental but there are only two people in one room and costs less. Is it worth it? Better than a regular supplemental (6+ people)?
@moonrise5: I've never heard of RA supplementals, kinda awkward if you ask me but they're pretty desperate to fit people in a limited amount of space. A supplemental will probably suck either way, it'll just vary in the degree of suckiness. Good luck in trying to get out.
@cel589: I know my building in Pollock had a mini kitchen on the ground floor (at least I think), I'm not sure if there was an oven there or not. Sorry.
I thought they meant one floor boy/one floor girl, but my daughter says she is finding out that there are boys on her floor. The girls have the low number rooms and the boys have the high number rooms. So, it looks like the floor is divided - one half girls, one half boys. At least on her floor.
Different buildings have different gender placements, or whatever you want to call them. I know certain buildings in East are experimenting with co-ed floors (as Kvillemom said), but I'm pretty sure the ones in Pollock are staying co-ed by floor, which is exactly what you thought it was.
I lived in Beaver Hall back in the mid-late 90's, and my floors had men and women on each floor. Can't remember room numbers, but the elevator/lobby area that divides each floor is off-center, and the shorter side of the building (with one set of showers and laundry) was women and the longer side of the building (with another set of showers and laundry) was men. The RA is placed right in the middle.
Question, I got a brita water filter for my dorm room fridge. However it's pretty big... I was wondering if people have been able to fit them in their dorm refrigerators? I know there's a few shelves in the fridge but if those can be moved it should be able to fit..?
Yes! I have managed to get out of east supplemental and am now in a small double in Pollock-Shunk. Does anyone know about floor space in a Pollock small double? Like what to bring/not bring. Are the closets the same as in other dorms? Any other helpful hints about a smaller room, etc. I am not really bothered about having a small room, anything is better than a supplemental in east and I do not bring large stuff like tv's and whatever big stuff people bring.
