Fall Room Change Days

The opportunity to request a change in your room assignment is coming up.  Tuesday, September 6 and Wednesday, September 7 are Fall Room Change Days. 

If you'd like to request a change, stop by the Residential Life Office, 111 Carkoski Commons, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.  Approved changes will be processed on the spot.  Residents who have arranged to swap rooms will have the opportunity to change rooms at this time.  Please note that, due to the number of students living in the residence halls, room change opportunities may be limited.

After September 7, room changes can be requested at the front desk of your community and will be managed by the Administrative Assistant of each community.


Changing Your Meal Plan

The last day to change meal plans for Fall Semester is Friday, September 2.  After this date, change requests will take effect the following semester.  If you'd like to change your meal plan, you can make your request online or visit us in the Residential Life Office at 111 Carkoski Commons.
