Requesting a Room Change

Page address: https://www.mnsu.edu/reslife/housing/new/assignmentstart-ForFall.html


Requesting a Change Before the Semester Begins

Beginning June 3 you may submit a [PDF] Wish List (223 KiB) request to Residential Life. Use this form to request a room change or a specific roommate.  If requesting to live with a specific roommate, both students must submit a Wish List form (submit forms together preferably). Your Wish List will be considered until August 9.  Our ability to grant your wish largely depends on the availability of space.

If your room assignment or roommate changes, we will notify you by e-mail. Once we have changed your assignment, your former room will become immediately available to other students and you will NOT have the option to change back to your former assignment. Wish list requests will be considered in the order they are received by our office.

If we are not able to honor your Wish List request by August 9, you will have the opportunity to change rooms during Room Change Days during the Fall Semester (based on availability).
