Roommate Assignments Australia students may live with one, two or three roommates within Swinburne University Residences. Students receive their roommate assignments once they arrive in Melbourne.  We encourage students to develop adaptability skills and to broaden their social network as much as possible, and as such, we are not able to accommodate roommate requests.

Living With Roommates and When to Seek Support 
Living with roommates can certainly be an adjustment for some students.  The staff has written some guidelines for students on how to communicate with roommates.  Review the “Living With Roommates 101” guidelines carefully.  Students can prevent conflict by being proactive with their communication.  Keep in mind that the on-site staff is available to students who are seeking advice about how to handle a roommate conflict.
