That same thing pretty much happened to me. I lived in dorms freshman and sophmore year and had become good friend with my roommate, so we had plans of getting an apartment for the next year before his g/f decided she was moving in, so I bailed on that idea (she was a b**** and thankfully he isn't with her anymore). I got stuck in the dorms for one more year with a random roommate even though I requested a single and he was an obnoxious, alcoholic freshman with annoying friend. And I had that same kind of meeting because there were tons of double dorms empty but they wouldn't let me have one without paying almost double. It sucked.
