Requesting a Room Change

Requesting a Room Change Before the Semester Begins

You may change your room preferences on your housing application through E-services by May 20. Please note that after this date you will not be able to change your preferences.

After June 20, but before August 15, you may complete a Room Change Request Form. Submit your form to the Department of Residential Life by fax, mail, email, or deliver in person. You and a friend may also use this form to request to be moved to an available room so that you may be roommates. Your Room Change Request Form will be considered until August 15.

If your room assignment or roommate changes, we will notify you by email. You can also check your room assignment online anytime. 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. Room change requests will be considered in the order they are received by our office.

If we are not able to accommodate your request by this date, you will have the opportunity to change rooms during Room Change Days during the fall semester.
