Before Occupancy Room Change Details

  • Room change requests are processed before move-in for eligible students (those with official hall/RAP assignments) only during the timelines listed above 
  • Students may request two hall/RAP eligible preferences and two room style preferences. We recommend putting two different room types that are affordable. You will have up to two preference options, but are not required to submit two
  • You will not be contacted prior to a move. Once you submit a request, you will either stay in your current assignment or, if you are selected for a room change, you will be assigned to a new space based on the information in your request
  • Room changes will not include roommates. If you are assigned a new multi-person room, you will also be assigned new roommates
  • Assignment letters are final and inform you if you were moved or not
  • If you submit during the April process and don't receive a change, you may resubmit during July
  • As many requests as possible are accommodated, however, participation in the room change process does not guarantee a room change
