Freshman do not get to request or choose housing at Skidmore. All incoming students are assigned a room and roommate(s) based on legal sex, smoking/non-smoking preference, and their assigned First Year Experience Seminar, and when possible, other preferences designated on the Residential Life Housing Questionnaire (such as gender-neutral housing). We do this to create a supportive community of your peers when you first get to Skidmore. This way, you have a built-in network of friends in and out of the classroom.
Hope that helps!
