Academic Year Room Change Request
Our ability to accommodate room/building changes is based solely on the availability of space. During the first three weeks of each semester, a "room freeze" is in effect. This period allows for the Office of Residential Life and Housing Services to take an inventory of occupancy and vacancies. During this time, students may submit room change requests, however changes will not begin until the freeze is over.
Different types of room changes are possible depending on the individual student's needs. Each student requesting a room change may meet with his/her Residence Hall Director to discuss options, needs and determine the best course of action.
Please note that housing rates are different from building to building, and related to room type within a building. Also, some buildings may require enrollment in a meal plan. Details and housing rates can be found here.
The Academic Year Room Change process is currently not available for the Fall 2013 term.
Bed-for-Bed Exchange Forum
In an effort to explore all possible opportunities, we have designed a new process that we are hopeful may result in some successful “bed-for-bed” room exchanges. This process is intended to provide you a forum to “swap” spaces with another student. By checking the box within the Bed-for-Bed Room Exchange section of the Housing Portal, you authorize the Office of Residential Life and Housing Services to share your contact information (email address, building location and type of room accommodation) with all other students interested in considering a bed-for-bed room change.
The bed-for-bed participant list will be distributed to interested parties on a weekly basis. Every Monday at 12pm, a PDF of the participant list will be emailed to students who have opted into the process. To opt into or out of the process you can check or uncheck the box within the Bed-for-Bed Room Exchange section of the Housing Portal at any time. Only those students who have opted into to process by Mondays at 9am will be included in the weekly participant list.
