The room mate program only allows Appalachian State University students to create AND read room mate requests. Your identity is kept secret until you decide to reveal it.
Other students may contact you through this system. Neither your email address nor theirs is revealed when using the messaging system. Whether you respond is up to you. If someone responds inappropriately, you have the option to report that person. We will take action but we can only read messages traded within the system. If you offer up your personal email address or phone number, we won't be able to track your conversation.
We suggest you pick a public area to meet your potential room mate and to not make any decisions until you have vetted them fully. If you have concerns about a potential room mate, contact Off-Campus Services immediately.
