Room Changes Prior to Occupancy

Incoming Freshmen

Room Change requests are reviewed on a case by case basis, processed on an individual basis pending space availability and are not guaranteed.

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

To submit a room change request prior to Fall semester arrival, complete THE PRIOR TO OCCUPANCY ROOM CHANGE REQUEST FORM

If you are dissatisfied with your housing placement due to the style of housing, you are encouraged to view our 360 DEGREE TOUR. This may give you a better idea of the size and setup of the unit to which you have been assigned. Each style of housing offers unique advantages and disadvantages. Your college experience is defined much more by the time you spend outside of your living space than the time you spend in it. Regardless of the style of housing you were placed in, we encourage you to get involved in the greater campus community through Community Council, Student Organizations, service opportunities and intramural sports.

If you are dissatisfied with your housing placement due to your assigned roommate, you are encouraged to make phone or in-person contact with that person to get to know him or her better. Remember, Facebook does not tell an entire story. All roommates are encouraged to set expectations and complete a Roommate Contract upon move-in. Your assigned Resident Assistant (RA) can assist you with this important process. The vast majority of roommate conflicts can be avoided with clear, direct communication and shared expectations.

 

Transfer and Upperclass Students

Upperclass students who already have a housing assignment for Fall 2014, but are interested in being placed on a waiting list for a different building, style or unit may submit THE PRIOR TO OCCUPANCY ROOM CHANGE REQUEST FORM

Upperclass students who have completed the housing application but did not select a room assignment during the Room Selection period may add themselves to a waiting list (or multiple waiting lists) via the UNASSIGNED WAIT LIST REQUEST FORM

 

Room Changes During Occupancy

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. 

To submit a room change request during the Fall or Winter semester, visit the Housing Office or any area Front Desk to submit your request. For a full listing of area desks, please click HERE.

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 list. 

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 or via housing@gvsu.edu.

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.

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
