Room Change Request Process
Room Change Process
The Residence Life Office must approve all room changes for all campus housing. A student who would like to request a room change must fill out the Room Change Request Form. The form must be complete and have the approval of the students current roommate, Resident Assistant or Community Assistant, and Area Coordinator before the Residence Life Office will consider the change.
If a room change request is approved, the student requesting to move will be contacted by the Residence Life Office to schedule an appointment to process the request. Room Changes are only to be done on Friday's. Students must complete their move within 48 hours and return their old room key to the Residence Life Office by the following Monday at 8:30am. Failure to return the old room key by the deadline will result in the moving student getting charged $30.00 for a lock change to be completed on their old room lock.
Students who change rooms without written permission from the Residence Life Office will get fined $100.00 and be subject to additional disciplinary action; even if the change is within the same suite or apartment.
