Requesting a Room Change

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


Requesting a Booking Change Before the Semester Begins

You may change your room preferences in the housing portal until May 20. Please note that after this date you will not be able to change your room preferences.

Beginning June 1 you may complete a Booking Change Request form. Submit your form to 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 Booking Change Request form will be considered until August 16.

If your room assignment or roommate changes, we will notify you by email. You can also view your room assignment in the housing portal. Roommate information will be available in the housing portal beginning June 20. 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. Booking 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.
