This really depends on the year of applicants (and the year you’re comparing it to). In terms of application type, Early Decision applications tend to be the least common across the board for applicants (relative to the number of Early Action and Regular Action applicants, that is).
That’s actually one of the best things about USF—students come from all across the world. I don’t know how else I would’ve made friends from so many other countries.
In my experience (as a California-native looking from the outside in), people are quite friendly. When I meet a student from another country, I’m actually immediately more interested to know about them and their story. People tend to find international students especially interesting.
At the most basic level, a triple room usually has two of the beds bunked and the third bed on its own.
The rest depends on the residence hall.

Woah, congrats on knowing what you want so soon!
The number of ED applicants fluctuates so much every year that we can’t really give a definite answer.

You should be prepared for a third roommate to move in at any time during the academic year. In some cases, a third roommate is never assigned to replace someone who cancelled their housing contract and you’ll end up being two residents in a room set up as a triple.

Floors in Lone Mountain North are a mix of single-sex floors and coed floors. Because the floors vary every year, the floor types aren’t set in stone. You’ll have to wait and see, or call Student Housing and Residential Education (SHaRE) for more information.
