Fourteen years ago, the Students Committee initiated a Roommate Connection Service for graduate students attending the annual ASA conference. The Committee will continue to offer this service for students attending the Los Angeles, CA conference. Rather than having to post your request for a roommate to a list, the Students Committee will act as a clearinghouse for students looking to share space.
Any student (or faculty) seeking a roommate need only send a message to the Students Committee. The Committee will, in turn, forward your message on to any other student(s) that seem to be a “match.” You will handle all the arrangements from there.
This service is available to all graduate students attending the ASA Conference. Please note that by submitting a request to the Roommate Connection Service, you give us permission to forward the entire contents of your message to other students seeking roommates. If the roommate connection works out, please RSVP back to the Students Committee so we can take your name off of our list.
-Your e-mail address
-The dates you will be staying in Los Angeles, CA
-Whether you HAVE or NEED a hotel room (with location, price, etc. if you already have one)
-Any preferences for lodging
-Any preferences for roommate (e.g., gender, smoking, gay/lesbian friendly)
Please submit your requests no later than October 26, 2014.
We cannot promise to find everyone a roommate, but we will do our very best!
