My son will be a transfer student at Miami starting this fall. I have been told from the housing folks that since he committed on the late side, he is vulnerable to be placed in overflow housing, and he received an email last night stating that his housing is still not set.
Overflow housing has been defined to me from someone in housing as either sharing a basement with 14 other guys, or rooming with an RA. It is temporary until a room opens up, but that could be an entire semester. This has my husband and I furious. Noone had mentioned this to us as a possibility at all. Both options are ones that my son will not thrive in.
Does anyone have any experience with this that they can share?
