Roommates on Matriculation forms

<p>When they ask how many roommates you prefer, are they referring to how many people in a "room" or an "apartment unit"? (when I was at Princeton Preview, I saw that there were about 6 rooms in each apartment unit so I assume the latter is right) Also, if one chooses not to live in a single-sex area, is he/she indicating that he/she wants people of opposite sex living in the same dormitory building or same apartment unit?</p>

<p>I have a lot of the same questions. Try contacting the Princeton housing department - Princeton</a> University Facilities - Contact Us.</p>

<p>Each unit. If you want 3 roommates, it means you want a quad, which is usually a suite with two doubles.</p>

<p>also, all suites, excluding a couple of spelman units that you won't get as a freshman/sophomore anyway, are all single sex.</p>

<p>Would you guys recommend getting a suite or having just one roommate? The matriculation forms ask if we'd like 0 roommates, 1, 2-3, or 4... not sure which to chooose! Any suggestions?</p>

<p>I loved having a suite. Having a common room was great because it created a "public" space while I could still have a more "private" space in the bedroom (even though I had a roommate). If one roommate wants to go to bed earlier, for example, the other roommate can stay up doing reading or whatever in the common room.</p>

<p>is a suite 3 roommates, 4 kids in all?</p>

<p>Thanks for the advice princeton12!</p>

<p>@meadow: I'm pretty sure there's 4 kids in a suite - 2 bedrooms and one common room.</p>

<p>I also have a suite and love it. Especially for freshman year, having a lot of roommates and a common area is amazing. It also makes having a roommate much easier to deal with. As princeton12 said, it's nice to have a common room to go to when one roommate is having someone over or wants to go to sleep early. Also, you get to decide who lives where within the suite so you have a little more flexibility on who you're rooming with. For example, two people who were rooming together first semester were having some problems, so we just switched things around within the suite for second semester.
In most cases for freshmen, 1 person = 1 room, 2 people = 1 room, 4 people = 2 bedrooms + common room, 5-11 people = some singles + some doubles + common room + bathroom</p>
