Frequently Asked Questions
Am I guaranteed a new space if I fill out an application?
Unfortunately, we can only reassign students based on the spaces that are available. Room changes will be granted on a first-come, first-serve basis based on availability.
Will my eBill change?
There are different housing rates for different building and room types. You will experience a change in housing costs if you move to a different building or room type. Housing charges will be pro-rated based on the date you check into your new room.
What if I don't like my new assignment as much as the one I have now?
Once the applications have closed, you may not withdraw or change your request. Please be sure of your decision to move prior to submitting a room swap request.
How much time will I have to complete my move?
Housing and Residence Life will assign students a date during a weekend in mid-October to move. Carts will be provided and students are responsible for moving all belongings within the allotted timeframe.
My friend doesn't have a roommate right now. How do I make sure I can move to his/her room?
Please select OPTION 1 on the application. You will need to indicate your friend's building and room number on your application. Your friend must then email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and request to add you as a preferred roommate.
I know someone who wants to switch rooms with me. How do I apply?
Please select OPTION 1 on the application and list the building and room you wish to move to. The person switching with you will also need to apply, select OPTION 1 on their application, and list your room.
Can I move on a different date?
No, moves will only occur during the assigned weekend to coordinate all other room swaps in the process.
