Our goal is to have all of our freshmen students reside in a traditional double, triple or quad style room. However, depending on the size of the incoming freshmen class, students may be assigned to an increased-occupancy triple room (a traditional double room with added furniture to accommodate three students). Students who are assigned to an increased-occupancy triple room will receive a $1,000 rebate applied to their student account after September 30. Naturally, if their housing situation changes before the first day of classes, they will no longer be eligible for the rebate. Typically there’s movement at the start of the semester, and as spaces become available, students will be offered the opportunity to de-triple (only if they wish!). If a room is de-tripled between September 6 and September 30, they'll receive a $500 rebate credited to their account in early October. If they are still in an increased-occupancy room post September 30, they will receive the full $1,000 rebate for the fall semester.

As the semester begins and we see changes in occupancy, we will offer room changes to reduce the number of increased-occupancy triple rooms. Students in increased-occupancy triple room assignments will be given first preference for openings which become available in freshmen residence halls. The Office of Community Living will be reaching out to students through their Siena email addresses as spaces become available.

Room Configuration

All increased occupancy rooms will have the following:

  • 1 set Bunked Beds
  • 1 Lofted Bed
  • 3 Dressers
  • 3 Desks
  • 3 Desk Chairs
  • 2 Closets

*If students would like to change the layout of their room, staff will be available to assist.

“Living in an increased-occupancy triple turned out to be one of the best things that could have happened to me at Siena. I was more than a little nervous when I first found out I was going to have two roommates, but By the time we got to campus, it felt like I already had two friends. Since graduating, they’ve remained two of my best friends.”
