  • Returning students select their rooms during the spring term for the following fall term. Students new to BCHS are assigned a residence hall room during the summer and receive their assignments in late July or early August.

    Students whose deposits are received before the May 1st priority deadline will be placed first. Priority is determined by the date on which the housing deposit is received by the Office of Housing/Residence Life. If you request to live with a particular person, and that person requests you, every effort will be made to honor that request. If you do not indicate a preference, the information on the housing application will be used to choose a suitable roommate.

  • BCHS is hopeful that all residents will have pleasant roommate experiences. We recommend that you set boundaries with in the first couple of days of moving into the room- even if you already knew your roommate. The next step would be to communicate any issues or annoyances as they arise. Waiting or ignoring issues can create additional problems, which often make reconciliation unattainable. Contact your RA or the Manager of Student Services for assistance with roommate issues.
