Roommate/Suitemate Requests

If you are a returning student and have a roommate/suitemate preference, fill out a roommate/suitemate request on Eagle’s Nest by Aug. 1 (fall semester) or Jan. 5 (spring semester). If you are an enrolling student, you can submit a request through the Applicant Portal.

One request per person may be honored. A $25 room change fee will be applied for any room change after check-in.


Completing a college degree soon after high school when it is easier to focus on studies is ideal for most students. You are encouraged to work on your college degree now since it will best prepare you for career and family goals. However, if a situation arises that requires you to postpone or cancel your reservation prior to the start of the semester, please contact the Admissions Office at (850) 478-8496, ext. 8717.
