Yes! You can choose your roommate. Keep in mind that your roommate will also need to be a member of the Wellness LLC. So have them fill out the interest form as well.

You can still be a part of the Wellness LLC! However, there is no guarantee that you will be able to be placed in the LLC when you return to campus the following Spring Semester or if something changes with your Fall semester plans.

You will be able to select from a variety of double and single room options within the LLC allocated area in Wannamaker in proportion to the number of residents in the LLC.

As a Wellness LLC member you'll enroll in the Wellness House Course either in the fall or spring semester of your first year in the LLC. This is one of the few requirements as an LLC member.

If an approved Wellness LLC member has an approved and current SDAO housing accommodation, Housing Assignments will do their best to assign you in a SDAO accommodation space within the LLC. If that assignment cannot be made, Housing Assignments will reach out to you directly to understand your preference.

If a SDAO housing accommodation arises after housing selection has occurred, then you will be placed on the SDAO housing accommodation waitlist and processed accordingly.

Yes! Even if you are not connected to Wannamaker Quad as a part of your QuadEx connection, you are still eligible to join the Wellness LLC.
