    Too early or Too Late??

    Advertisements



    Hello Everyone!

    I'll be starting my first semester at Ross in January. I was originally planning on arriving soon after Christmas to secure housing. However, when I emailed the housing department to inform them of my arrival date so a housing tour may be set up, the Housing Officer emailed me back and told me it was imperative that I not come to the island until after January 1st. This surprised me because I thought the sooner we got to the island, the better chance we would have at finding decent living. I was told that,

    "housing certainly will not be available for viewing much less moving in at such time. Majority of the apartments will still be occupied by students who are waiting on their grades, to decide whether or not they will stay another semester and also the houses will be under repair and cleaning"

    The email went on to say that if we come before January 1st we'd probably have to stay in a hotel for a few days. Was any first semester student arriving on the island for the first time told the same thing? Or can students familiar with the housing situation inform me if January 1st is too late to come? If there will be 300 students starting in January, I don't see how everyone can arrive after January 1st. I've read on here many times to come as early as possible, so I was surprised when I was told to come at such a late date. Thank you everyone in advance for your help! I'm anxious to finalize my plane ticket but I do not know what date to set it to.

    This is one of the downside of starting in January. It's not Ross fault. Most places will be closed from about Dec. 22 'till Jan. 1st or so. You'll be hard pressed to find any transport, housing, or restaurants opened. Just book your ticket on Jan. 2 and hope for the best! Good Luck!
