Room Change Requests
Living on campus can be both a rewarding and a challenging experience for students. The skills and relationships that you gain by living on campus with a roommate, and in a community setting, will aide you later in life.
While the Office of Campus Housing attempts to match students as roommates with similar lifestyles (as presented in your Campus Housing Application), there are times when conflicts arise despite how many common interests or habits you and your roommate might share. Should this occur, you may enter the room change request process listed below by completing the ROOM CHANGE REQUEST FORM.
Upon moving into the residence hall, you and your roommate completed a Roommate Agreement. Many times, disagreements among roommates occur because one or both parties are not abiding by the previously agreed upon decisions documented in the roommate agreement. When conflict occurs, you should attempt to resolve your conflict by communicating with your roommate about the issues you are having.
Should you decide that the resolution from that conversation does not meet your needs and you would like to change rooms, you should reach out to your Resident Coordinator (RC), The RC will help facilitate a conversation about the unresolved issues between you are your roommate. This discussion is called a mediation.
The goal of the mediation processes is to develop a mutually agreed upon resolution to the issues at hand. If the mediation does not resolve the issues you are having with your roommate, you may approach the Resident Director in your area to discuss changing your room further.
The Resident Director (RD) will meet with the Director of Campus Housing and discuss the unresolved conflicts between you and your roommate. The RD will make a recommendation regarding the room change request approval/denial.
You should read and sign the gray section of the room change request form.
Submit the room change request form with all of the required signatures to the Resident Director and receive your new housing assignment.
Please note that unauthorized room changes may result in disciplinary action.
