Room Change Request Process

Room Change Process

The Office of Residence Life must approve all room changes for on-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, 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 Residence Life to schedule an appointment to process the request.  Room Changes are only to be done on Fridays.  Students must complete their move within 48 hours and return their old room key to the Residence Life 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.
If you know who you want to live with:
  • Download the room change form (below)
  • Meet with your RA and AC
  • Bring signed form to Residence Life
  • A request received after Wednesday will not be processed until the following week
If you do not know who you want to live with, call (570) 941-7959 to schedule a meeting to discuss open rooms.

Submitting a room change request does not guarantee approval.  Moving without approval and issue of a new key will result in a $100 fine, documentation on disciplinary record and you may be forced to move back to your original room.
