Requesting A Room Change

If you are a student that would just like to change room types or buildings without a specific room or roommate in mind, please complete the OCH_Room Change Request form.

Requesting A Roommate Change

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 OCH_Room Change Request.

First Step

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.

Second Step

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.

Third Step

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 Coordinator(RC) in your area to discuss changing your room further. The RC will initial your room change request form at this time.

Fourth Step

The Resident Coordinator (RC) will meet with the Director of Campus Housing and discuss the unresolved conflicts between you and your roommate once the Office of Campus Housing receives the room change request form. The RC will make a recommendation regarding the room change  request approval/denial.

Please note that unauthorized room changes may result in disciplinary action.
