Housing Requests

Need a Change?

Looking to change your room assignment or swap rooms with another student? Or, maybe you just need more floor space in your dorm room. See below for some of the options that may be available to you. We’ll do our best to help get you what you’re looking for. 

Need help selecting your roommate or housing assignment? Our step-by-step instructions can help:


Change Your Room Assignment

Request to change your current housing assignment by submitting a Room Change Request.

  • Room Change Instructions - Click to View

    Availability

    Room Change Requests are currently closed. They will reopen on Mon., January 21, 2019.

    Details

    When Room Changes are open, please allow 3-5 days for processing after submitting your request. If you are approved, a $35 non-refundable administrative fee will be charged to your account. Before submitting your request, you may contact our office ahead of time to inquire as to which rooms on campus have an available bed.

    If you need to cancel a Room Change Request, send us an email to let us know. Requests canceled after approval will still be subject to the $35 fee. 

 

Swap Rooms with Another Student

During the academic year and over the summer, you can request to swap rooms with another student.

  • Room Swap Instructions - Click to View

    You may request to swap rooms with another student. To do so during the academic year requires each of you to submit a Room Change Request, specifying "Room Swap" within the form online, when they are open. See above for Room Change instructions and availability. 

    After submitting, please allow 3-5 business days for processing. 

    Keep in mind that no student is required to change their room assignment once they have secured one.

 

Bed Buyout

Interested in having a room to yourself? Beginning for Spring 2019, students living on-campus in a room with an open bed may now submit a request to "purchase" the empty space in their room. Bed Buyouts cost $800 per semester.

  • Bed Buyout Instructions - Click to View

    Availability

    Requests for Spring 2019 are now open and will remain open through February 1. You must already be assigned to the room you are requesting to buy out. (If you’re interested in switching into an empty room to take advantage of this option, you may submit a Room Change request beginning on January 14, 2019. At that point, please feel free to contact our office regarding room availability.)

    Cost

    Bed Buyouts are $800 per semester, which must be credited to your Student Account prior to final approval.

    • Upon conditional approval, you will be notified that you have 5 business days to ensure that the $800 credit is present on your account, which can be done by contacting Student Accounts.
    • After the credit has been confirmed on your account, we will notify you of final approval and place the $800, non-refundable charge.

    Approval

    Bed Buyout requests will operate on a semester basis; approval for future semesters may be obtained by submitting a new request at the beginning of each semester. Your approved request will grant you use of the additional space and furnishings of the room for the full semester. All other guidelines in the On-Campus Living Guide regarding furniture still apply.

 

Loft Kits

If you are in a two-person room (double room), you can request a loft kit for a charge of $50, which will be added to your student account.

  • Loft Kit Instructions - Click to View

    Availability

    Loft Kit requests are currently closed. They will reopen on Mon., January 21, 2019.

    Details

    Not all university furniture is compatible with Loft Kits. Requests will be honored based on inventory.

    If approved, you may install your Loft Kit yourself, or you may submit work order to have it professionally installed. See the section on Furniture Adjustments below for more information on installation.

    All bunks and lofts must have safety rails attached at all times, with one side against a wall.
