Room Change requests are reviewed on a case by case basis and processed on an individual basis pending space availability. Space is limited and reassignment is not guaranteed. You are encouraged to work with your RA and Living Center Director staff to assist you with any roommate concerns you may be experiencing.
Requests are processed by the Living Center Director staff on an individual basis. Special care is taken to ensure room changes meet the needs of all involved. You will be notified by the Living Center Director Staff if your request has been approved and space is available in your requested area. You are responsible for completing a proper checkout from your current housing assignment. Failure to properly check out will result in administrative and damage fees.
The Housing staff member will ask for your name, current room assignment, email address, cell phone number, desired building or unit type and a brief description of the nature of your request. You may request a particular style, a certain building or a specific room. You may be added to multiple waiting lists. Please do not put yourself on a waiting list unless you are truly interested in the change and willing to move to your new assignment on relatively short notice. If you change your mind and are no longer interested in a room change, please cancel your request at your area front desk.
It is your responsibility to be aware of any billing implications related to a room change. To review the cost of various housing styles, see our HOUSING RATES.
