Conversation Starter with Roommate

We are so excited to see you soon! Just a few weeks until move-in begins! As we move closer to August, we wanted to encourage you to reach out to your roommates to start building connections! Below are instructions and suggested prompts to begin the conversation. Focus this time and energy on connecting with each other and who is bringing which items for your space. There will be plenty of time once you arrive on campus to discuss expectations of living together and what feels best as you make this transition! Your RAs look forward to guiding you through that discussion.

Connecting with your Roommates!

See who your roommates are

Log in to your housing portal

Once you log in to the housing portal, click on "room" at the top. Then select the appropriate term. You will then see a list of other residents assigned to your suite.

Send a message

Via the Housing Portal

Once you see the list of people on the Housing Portal, click "send a message." This will allow you to connect with your roommates through the Portal's messaging feature. This is a great way to introduce yourself!

Exchange contact information

As you feel comfortable

If you feel comfortable, it might be a great idea to exchange phone numbers or create a GroupMe with your roommates. This can ease communication as you approach move-in!

Start to build connections

Some questions to help

  • Why did they decide on East Bay as a campus?
  • What are they most excited about?
  • What classes are they in this semester/what is their major?
  • What are some of their favorite interests or hobbies?
  • What are your favorite shows or genres of music?

Have something to look forward to

Weeks of welcome info is coming soon

Get excited to explore the campus and all the great ways to connect with the campus during your first weeks! What are some things that you and your roommates are looking forward to?

To help with the flow of the move-in process, we designate your move in time according to the building that you will be moving into, in addition to the floor number.
