This process is for current residents who are seeking to change room during the Open Room Change period August 27th-August 30th. All students desiring to complete a room change must complete the following steps:
- Complete this Room Change Request
- Schedule an appointment with the Director/Assistant Director of Housing & Residential Services
No room changes are permitted prior to your meeting with Housing and Residential Services. Individual(s) who move or switch rooms without written authorization are subject to an Improper Room Change fine of $125.00 and a HOLD placed on your student account.
Room change Guidelines:
- Residents are only allowed 1 room change during this period. Choose wisely.
- Residents MUST have completed registration for the Fall 2018 semester
- Changes to completely empty double rooms are not permitted UNLESS you bring a roommate with you
- Any approved room change must be completed within 48 hours. This includes moving all belongings to the new room, checking out of your old room with the RA AND returning your key to the Housing & Residential Services Office (LRC 2W 5/6).
Room Changes: Individuals seeking to find a different space will come to the Housing and Residential Services Office at their scheduled appointment time. A list of available spaces will be presented and the student can opt to change spaces to one of them at that time or go to meet the current occupant before making a decision. Please note that current occupant information cannot be shared during the initial meeting, nor can spaces be held awaiting a decision.
Room/Space Swaps: If 2 individuals are swapping spaces, only one must submit the Room Change Request and complete the Roommate Swap portion of the request. You will need the Z# of the individual you are switching with. This indicates their willingness to take part in the process. You will need to schedule 1 appointment that both individuals must attend. Housing and Residential Services will make the room adjustment during the appointment. Each individual will still need to complete their check-out process from their old rooms with the RA. No changes will be made unless BOTH individuals are present during the appointment.
Instances where it appears that individuals have been coerced into completing a room change will not be tolerated. Individuals found to be involved in trying to coerce other residents into changing rooms will not be allowed to participate in the room change process and will have to wait for the open room change process in August.
The process will begin on Monday, August 27th. Once you have completed the Room Change Request, please sign up for an appointment time here.
Instances where it appears that individuals have been coerced into completing a room change will not be tolerated.

Thank you for your cooperation and respect of each other.
