He was the roomate of Ely. Also one of Holdens friends. Their rooms were right next to each other. It was Stradlater who roomed with Holden. The next room over was Robert or as everyone calls him "Ackley", who roomed with Ely.

Akley is not someone that Holden really likes and in fact he often finds Akley irritating. Akley is that awkward, pimple ridden, smelly guy that seems to always be around and has no notion of personal boundaries. He believes that because he is two years older than Holden that he is naturally his superior. He's Ely's roomate.
