I received the housing assignment from the university I'll attend this fall. I had heard all about the amazing suite-style rooms available for graduate students, looked over the diagrams for the different types of suites, and numbered my choices from most desired to least desired. The housing assignment shows that not only will I have a roommate, but the two of us will share a common living space with two other students who will live across from us as roommates. The catch is that the three students listed are freshmen. Should I stick with it, see what the three students are like, and draft a roommate agreement, or am I in for some trouble living with freshmen? Would it be acceptable to ask for a different housing assignment, at least one where my roommate would be another graduate student like myself, or would that be perceived as bossy or snobby? Part of me feels like it won't be a big deal because these students have selected their majors and seem decent, but another part of me feels that as a graduate student I deserve a living arrangement that will allow me to study and work without the drama and headaches that can come from having a roommate or an underclassmen-oriented environment.
