College dorms and roommates

My character is at college in the US [Las Vegas to be specific, since I'm assuming he just ended up going to the nearest college] on scholarship - I'm English, so I'm a little unsure of the differences, and any google searches I get just get stories about reunions.

1. Does scholarship pay for housing? Or is there normally some kind of grant or loan that can be applied for?
2. How common is it for students to stay in dorms past their first year? I've heard of people staying on and off campus, and I just wanted to check staying on campus is feasible.
3. If they do stay on campus as a second year, how likely is it that their roommate would be a freshman?
4. How many people do actually move away to go to college? As said above, I'm assuming he stayed in the local area but went into dorms, and I'm not sure how likely it would be.

Edit: Uh, wow, thanks for all your responses :D
