Open All/Close All

I have a vacancy in my room. Will I receive a random roommate or be charged for a single?

Students with a vacancy may receive a roommate at any time during the change process. Students who are assigned a new roommate will be notified later than 24 hours prior to the student moving in to the room.

We will not force students into single rooms or charge for a vacancy within a room. Our office, however, may assign a new roommate anytime, including after the room change period.


What if I have a friend whom I want to room with me?

The student who is moving will need to complete the room change application and indicate the specific room they are requesting to move into.


How do I swap rooms with another student?

In order to complete a room swap, both students wishing to change rooms must complete the room change application and indicate the specific room in which they wish to move.


If I switch to a room with a different cost, how will my billing be affected?

Your billing will be prorated to reflect the cost difference for each room. This will cause either an increase or decrease in housing costs.

Example: if you moved from a triple to a double, you will be charged for the number of days you were in the double and your cost will be adjusted to reflect the remainder of the semester in a single.


Who is responsible for my move?

Residents, who are approved for a room change, are responsible for moving all of their belongings to their new housing assignment during the designated date and time specified on their approval notice. The Student Housing & Residence Life office is able to provide moving carts.


When will charges be applied if I am moving to a different room type?

Residents who are approved for a room change will have their new housing charges and meal plan charges (if applicable) reflected on their student account five business days after they relocate. Residents will be charged a prorated amount for the time they resided in their old housing assignment in addition to a prorated amount for the time they will reside in their new housing assignment. Room and board costs are posted on our website.


Can I request a single room?

Yes. You may request a single room.  However, single rooms are very limited and are often full for the entire academic year. We can only offer single rooms on a first come first served basis as space is available. The majority of students requesting singles will not be offered a signle space.


Can I request to move to Student Housing West

Yes, you may request to move to Student Housing West if you meet all of the eligibility requirements.


If I do not currently have any roommates, can I keep my room as a single?

If you are in a double with a vacancy, you cannot opt to keep your room as a single. If you have a specific accommodation need for a single room, please reach out to our office.
