Space Changes

Approved space changes may take place beginning the third week of the semester (after two full weeks of classes).

Space changes typically are not granted during the summer term due to our facilities' maintenance schedule.

When considering a space change, please follow these simple guidelines.

  • The first step is to connect with your residence hall director (RHD) as soon as possible. They are there to assist you with your on-campus living experience.
  • If the move is due to roommate conflict, please be sure to communicate face-to-face with this person in a manner meant to resolve conflict.
  • Complete the Roommate Agreement Workbook and rely on Residence Life staff to assist in any mediation needed. Please note: No space change will be granted until this step has been completed.
  • Typically, Residence Life has very few open spaces during the academic year, so the opportunity for space changes is limited and not guaranteed.
  • If you have a friend who has a vacancy in their room or apartment, and you would like to move into that space, you should contact the RHD of that building to request the space change along with the friend. That RHD will make the determinations, provide a timeframe for completing the move, and direct you to check out of your current space with your current RHD.
  • As living on campus is meant to be a growth experience in preparation for real-world living, students should communicate directly with Residence Life staff about needs and concerns with on-campus living. Resolving conflict can be a positive experience. The residence hall director is always a great first stop!
  • Please keep in mind that the Office of Residence Life does not move students due to differences of race, ethnicity, religion and beliefs, sexual orientation, physical ability, or any other social identity.

The Office of Residence Life is committed to providing residents a comfortable, educational, diverse and caring community where academic success, personal growth and social responsibility are valued.

Research shows that living in a community with people from different backgrounds, values, personalities and interests is an integral part of the college experience.
