Can I request to live with someone else?
You can request a roommate on your housing questionnaire. This request must be mutual. The person who you request to live with must also request to live with you.
What does my room come with?
The College supplies a bed frame, a standard-sized twin mattress, desk, chair, and dresser. The student supplies a pillow, blanket, linens, lamps, wastebaskets, and personal accessories. Please note that furniture provided by the College cannot be exchanged, removed or stored. Additionally, free toilet paper and garbage bags are provided by Campus Operations in Andrews House at the Purple Door.
Does cost depend on what building/room you live in?
No. Sarah Lawrence has a flat rate for housing, which can be found on the financial aid page of the Sarah Lawrence website.
When will I find out who my RA is?
Your RA will reach out to you before your move in via email.
Can I pick who lives in my room/apartment?
You can request a roommate to live in your room. Assignments in the rooms in the apartment are decided by The Office of Residence Life and cannot be changed.
Will I have access to a kitchen?
Your room assignment will determine whether or not you have access to a kitchen. You can find a full list of our residence halls and their amenities here.
What small appliances am I allowed to have in my room? Where can I find a list of prohibited items?
You can find a list of prohibited items here. You can keep mini-fridges, microwaves, and Keurigs in your room. Items such as electric tea kettles, hot plates, toasters, etc. are only permitted to be kept in kitchens.
