Need a Change?
Wanting 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 you get what you’re looking for.
Please Note: Due to our deployment of a new housing software, many of our requests are currently closed. Room Changes, Bed Buyouts, Housing Selection (for new students), and more will open on Wed., February 5, 2020. Thank you for your patience!
Interested in having a room to yourself? 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, or $1500 for the full year.

Requests for Spring 2020 will reopen on Wed., February 5, 2020.
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 first submit a Room Change request, when open (see below for details). Contact our office regarding room availability, and please note that if you change into a room of a higher housing budget, you will be responsible for the difference in price.
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.
Bed Buyout requests are considered based on availability, and will be approved or denied at the discretion of the Office of Residence Life. 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.
You can bunk, de-bunk, loft, de-loft, and adjust the height of your own bed. View our instructional videos below for assistance. Or, you can submit a work order to have it professionally adjusted. Need help submitting your work order? View instructions here.
