We will not be running our usual Open Room Change process for the fall. However, we will have the Room Change Interest Form for residential students that will be available at 9am, Wednesday, September 2nd, 2020 through 5pm, Friday, October 9th, 2020 (Our office may fill requests the week after for requests submitted at the end of the process). You may sign up at any time between these dates and our staff will contact you should anything open up in relation to your request.

Please be aware, the semester cost for housing may vary from room to room. Students accepting a room change may be charged more or less, depending on their new housing assignment.  Before accepting a room change, please be certain to review current room rates.  Costs will be prorated in accord with the date of the room change.

Process Overview:

We currently have very limited availability on campus to accommodate room changes. Students who are interested in a different room , may place their name on the Room Change Interest Form. Residence Life staff will review available spaces and will notify  you or your group if there are available spaces that match your interest. . Please note that due to the very limited open spaces during this time, we may not be able to accommodate all requests for switching spaces. 


Students who have a current vacancy:

  • Per the Housing Agreement, the Office of Residence Life reserves the right to assign new roommates to any vacancies through the room change process.
  • Students with a vacancy may request another known student to fill a vacancy through the Room Change Interest Form.
  • Students will be notified via email if a new roommate is being assigned to a vacancy in their assigned room/apartment.

We are not actively seeking to fill every vacancy, but our campus needs may change during the fall semester. You will receive an email to notify you when a new roommate is assigned. Once a student has been assigned to this vacancy, you may view the new roommate information within the Housing Portal in the Nest.

Types of Room Change Requests

Option 1 - Amicable Room Consolidation:

If you know of a vacancy in a room or apartment and have an interest in filling that space with the current resident you must still place your name on the waitlist. All current residents in the space you are requesting will receive communication from our office after receiving the request. Our office will work with these cases on an individual basis in an attempt to satisfy the amicable request. Please note that completing this process does not guarantee placement into the desired space.


Option 2 – General Housing Interest

- Reassignment of an Individual (1 person):

Only one housing reassignment offer will be made to a participant on the interest form. If the participant on the interest form does not wish to accept an offer made for reassignment, but wishes to remain on the waitlist, they  will be moved to the bottom of the list and the offered vacancy will be given to the next person with a request match on the list. 


*There are no single rooms available for students at this time. Any student who fills out the individual housing interest section will be placed with another student into a space.  


- Reassignment of a Group (2 or more people):

Should multiple persons wish to be considered for a group reassignment, they may submit a room change request as a group. Only one housing reassignment offer will be made to a group on the waitlist. If the group on the waitlist does not wish to accept an offer made for reassignment, but wishes to remain on the waitlist, they will be moved to the bottom of the waitlist and the offered vacancy will be given to the next group with a request match on the waitlist.


Request A Random Roommate: If you currently have a vacancy and would like to receive a roommate, please reply back to this email and we will work to place a roommate with you.
