Administrative Assignments

All students who completed Phase 1 are guaranteed an assignment. Students who chose not to select or were unable to select a space during Phase 2 - Room Selection will be administratively assigned over the summer. The assignment preference form will be available April 15th through May 15, 2019. It is accessible on the Housing Portal. All cancellation deadlines and related fees apply to all students awaiting administrative assignment.

Post Selection Room Change Requests

The post selection room change form is available from April 8th through May 15, 2019. It is accessible on the Housing Portal. Please note the following:

  • Review of room change requests is done on a rolling basis after the final cancellation deadline has passed and available inventory is realized.
  • The only room change preferences taken into consideration are those indicated by the student on the room change request form.
  • Single occupancy rooms make up only 3% of all residence hall inventory, so if a student only indicates preferences for a room change into a single occupancy room, there is less than a 3% chance that a room change will be possible.
  • Consideration is given to room change requests in reverse priority from the room selection process.  For example, those with later room selection times will have their room change requests considered before those with earlier room selection times.
  • If a room change has not been accommodated by Friday, August 2nd, it is unlikely a new assignment will become available prior to the start of the fall term.
  • Room changes are never guaranteed.  Requests are solely subject to space availability.

Themed Engagement Community Waitlist

Students interested in joining a themed engagement community should complete this waitlist form by May 15, 2019. Students who previously applied for themed engagement communities during Phase 1 will receive priority for placement.

Bed for Bed Room Change Forum

The Bed for Bed room change forum will be available beginning April 15th, 2019. It is accessible on the Housing Portal.
