Room Changes After Move-In

You are encouraged to work with your RA and Living Center Director staff to assist you with any roommate concerns or facilities issues you may be experiencing. To be placed on the Room Change Waitlist, please speak to your current Living Center Director. Please note that room change requests are:

  • reviewed on a case by case basis,
  • generally only granted once per academic year,
  • never guaranteed,
  • based on availability due to limited spaces.

It is your responsibility to be aware of any billing implications related to a room change (i.e. moving to a new community or style). To review the cost of various housing styles, see our HOUSING RATES

If a room that meets your preferences becomes available, you will be notified via student email by the Central Housing Office. If approved for a room change, students will be notified via student email with information regarding their responsibilities of moving and cleaning; failure to properly check out will result in administrative and damage fees. 

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 by emailing myhousing@gvsu.edu.
