First-year Students

First-year StudentBefore you begin your first year at Sweet Briar, you’ll complete a new student information form, which is located in Canvas, our online course platform. The Office of Student Life will send you a link to that form — and many others! — after you submit your deposit. The student life staff uses this important information to pair new students and make housing assignments. It’s crucial that you are honest in filling out this form — if you consider yourself a messy person, for example, be sure to answer the question about tidiness truthfully instead of what you might think a potential roommate wants to hear!

Other questions ask what time you go to bed and wake up, what you are looking for in a roommate, your ideas about sharing items, and more.

You will receive your housing placement and roommate assignment by email in the middle of the summer. Keep an eye on your mailbox! Then, connect with your new roommate to discuss your decorating plans and get to know each other.
