I got put in a overflow room, 3 people in a 2 person dorm. Has anyone had to do this before? Was it that terrible? Should I just live at home? ( I am close enough to do that)

i will be in one too, but NOT close enough to live at home.
im not TOO worried. realistaically, i only plan to sleep there. i can study in a handful of other places around campus (ucsd), library included. this is one of the reason i got a laptop too, so i can leave the dorm if i have to.
but even so, anyone who knows about this situation, from experience, let us know how it went!

I'm in a triple at UCLA. I don't think it will be too bad (we haven't begun yet), but one thing that is bothering me, on a rather unrelated subject, is that one of my roommates has an invalid email address and no phone number, so the other two of us are just sitting here like...okayyy...

I'm not in one personally, but friends of mine are. They say it's not bad at all if you get along with the others. One of the girls especially likes it. Seems like they know more people. But our dorms aren't tiny...so I don't know.

I'm in a triple as well and it's not bad at all. My roommates are pretty cool and we get along well so far. As for the overflow room- I don't think mine is. It's pretty nice in my opinion. I think it's more fun having more than one roommate. The only thing I would change about my living experience would be the fact that I have to use a communal bathroom. In a nutshell, I think my triple is nice and cozy. Ya get used to it fast (at least I did).

Three people being forced to live in a room designed for only two. I would expect each one of you is is being charged 1/3 less. But something tells me you're not.

I'm in a triple, and I love it. it's more room for me, and it's nice because you don't get sick of your roomates. My roomates are really cool though, and we have our space. When I need to study, I go to the library, and I hang in my dorm just to chill, and to talk to other people. But you'll be fine!

The triples at my school are double sized most of the time (on purpose). But they do get charged less and get a bigger fridge.

im in a triple at UCSD, and they do charge less. i havent done the math to see if its 1/3 less, but they credit you $4 a day for everyday in the triple.
they do this because theoretically, they are aiming to move one person out of every triple so it becomes a double.
so $4/day may not seem like much, but thats $28/week. sorta adds up...

I'm in one right now. One of my roommates is annoying though. BUT! Headphones and music turned up really loud, seems to drown her out.

Wow...never knew that there were triples...don't know if I would be able to get used to that...but I'm in a single.
