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.
Interested in having a room to yourself? Throughout the first three weeks of the semester, students living on-campus in a room with an open bed may submit a request to "purchase" the empty space in their room. Bed Buyouts cost $800 per semester.
Requests for Spring 2019 are now closed.
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 first.
Bed Buyouts are $800 per semester, which must be credited to your Student Account prior to final 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.
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.
You can rent or return bed pieces at the Office of Residence Life front desk to rent or return bed pieces. You must always have at least two people participating in all furniture adjustments. All bunks and lofts must have safety rails attached at all times with one side against a wall.
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.
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 above for more information on installation.
All bunks and lofts must have safety rails attached at all times with one side against a wall.
If you would like to have a visitor stay overnight on your hall, submit an Overnight Visitor request for approval!
Requests must be submitted at least 48 hours in advance. Notice of approval or denial will come to you via email.
According to the On-Campus Living Guide, all overnight visitors:
Overnight visitors are not permitted during finals week or CFAW.
Request to change your current housing assignment by submitting a Room Change Request.
Contact our office before submitting a request to inquire as to which rooms on campus have an available bed. Once submitted, allow 1-2 business days for processing. If you are approved, a $35 non-refundable administrative fee will be charged to your account.
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. If you need to correct something on a request already submitted, contact our office to make any necessary updates.
During the academic year and over the summer, you can request to swap rooms with another student.
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 both requests have been submitted, please allow 1-2 business days for processing.
Keep in mind that no student is required to change their room assignment once they have secured one.
