Room Changes/Hall Changes
In order to make sure that all students are accommodated, it is not possible to honor requests for room and/or hall changes during the first two weeks of each semester. After that time, if you wish to change rooms or halls, please go to the room change request instructions. Persons making unauthorized moves will be subject to disciplinary action.
If you are requesting a room change due to a roommate conflict, please visit the Roommate Conflict Resolution page before submitting your room change request.
Single Rooms & Room Consolidation
The University and Housing & Dining Services are obligated by their bondholders to make maximum use of all space. When students are left without a roommate through no fault of their own (i.e. room changes, withdrawal of their roommate), they will have two options:
- Sign a Double-as-Single Contract, which guarantees a single room for the remainder of the semester and/or academic year, by paying an additional fee (prorated, determined by the Assignments and Billing Office, by the day the roommate leaves) and have one set of furniture removed, or
- The Room Consolidation Policy: Remain in the room at no additional charge under the condition that they may receive a roommate assignment or be reassigned to another room in the same hall (whenever necessary) to permit the maximum use of paid space. If assignment to another room is necessary, every effort is made to keep the student being moved in the same hall and on the same floor.
The decision to allow students to keep the single room for spring semester will be determined by the need for spaces and will be announced as soon as possible. Students whose roommate leaves at the end of fall semester are not guaranteed a single room for spring semester. It is important that the room be prepared to receive a new roommate before the student leaves for winter break. Decisions regarding availability of the room as a single will not be announced until approximately two weeks after the beginning of spring semester. If space is available, a Double-As-Single Room offer will be emailed to the email address provided on the student's application. If the Double-As-Single Room offer is not accepted, the student will be subject to the Room Consolidation Policy. Forced consolidation will not occur for summer housing unless the housing needs require such a move.
Students may be required to move to another hall/room in the case of disciplinary proceedings or emergency situations.
If you are one of the last students assigned to a particular residence hall, there is a possibility that you may be placed in a temporary room when you first arrive. As spaces in permanent rooms become available, due to late cancellations and withdrawals, residents will be moved into a permanent space. If you are initially assigned to a temporary space within one of the residence halls, your cooperation and understanding during this opening period is appreciated.
