Residence Hall Transfer

Residence Hall Transfer will begin Monday September 8, 2014 and end on Friday September 12, 2014 at 4:00p.m. This process will be for students wanting to switch residence halls. Please come to the Housing Office prepared to sign up on the consolidation list, to exchange residence halls. Room changes are available only on a space available basis.  A form to request a room assignment change will be available at the Housing Office Monday morning.  In addition to signing the consolidation list, and filling out the residence hall transfer form, you will be required to contact the resident you wish to exchange rooms with. Both parties will need to be present to receive the approval form for the move. The move will require both parties to move within a 48 hour time slot.  Students changing rooms without the prior approval from the Office of Housing and Residence Life will be subject to a $100 fine.

In the event of roommate conflicts, students are expected to resolve issues and may seek assistance with the resolution of conflicts from residence hall staff. If conflicts cannot be resolved it is expected that the roommate who has the greatest issue with the living arrangement move to a different location. Students do not have the right to force a roommate out of the room.
