Unlike other student trips, the roommate request/selection process plays a very small role. Student rooms are only for sleeping and taking care of other personal responsibilities. All other activities (studying, connecting with home, using computers) take place outside of student rooms.
Depending on which of the Linden Centre compounds we call home, students will be placed in rooms with anywhere between one and four other students. This process takes place upon arrival, with decisions being made based on which combinations of students will support the overall goals of the trip.
Students are strongly encouraged not to choose to be roommates with their closest friends, as this has consistently resulted in students being less able to make new connections during their time at Microcampus.
