All first year students with roommates will be asked to complete a Roommate Living Agreement . The purpose of this agreement is to provide a strong foundation for roommates to foster positive communication as they share a living space. 

Room Change Process

It is our hope that you will find your living arrangement with your roommate to be a pleasant experience. However, in the event that you and your roommate are not able to work through your differences and move forward, you are able to request a room change. 

The academic year room change waitlist process begins on the third Monday of classes.

Room change requests can be made by completing the Housing Waitlist Form . Students are added to a waitlist based on the date and time of request. Requests can be submitted starting the 3rd Monday of each semester. Students are free to make these requests throughout the semester. Actual room changes begin and end as listed on our Important Dates page. Room changes are granted based on the order in which they are received and the availability of space.

  • As space becomes available, you will be contacted and provided with further instructions. If you have any questions about room changes please feel free to contact your Area Coordinator or the Housing Coordinator.
  • When your room move has been approved you will be notified. You will have 3 days to pick up your key, complete your room move, and drop off the key to your old room and necessary paperwork to the ResEd office. If by Day 4 you have not completed your room move you will be sent a follow-up e-mail.
  • If by Day 6 you have still not completed your move, we will shut off your ID Card and will assess a $50 improper check-out fee to your student account. You will be contacted by phone and will be sent a letter to your OCMR.
  • On Day 10 you will be charged $60 (to your student account) for a lock change for keyed buildings and cost of removal of any items from the room. You will be sent another letter to your OCMR.
