Room Changes After Move-In
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.
To be placed on the Room Change list, please speak to your RA, ALCD or LCD. You are also able to place yourself on the Room Change List by going to your myHousing Overview via myBanner. From there, select "More Tasks," then "Fall 2018 / Winter 2019 Waiting Lists." Select the style(s) of Housing you are interested in changing to, and include any additional details in the Comments box. You will then be notified by a Housing Staff member as space becomes available.
If you choose to be placed on the Room Change list by a Housing staff member, they 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 either with a Housing Staff member or by reaccessing the Waiting List through the myHousing Overview via myBanner.
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.
