Students interested in a room change must work with the Residential Education staff within their residence hall to explore the possibility of a room change. Students experiencing roommate issues should contact their community adviser. In addition, within the first 2-3 weeks of each semester, Residential Education and Housing holds a room change day. Please read below for more information.
Room Change Day
The next Room Change Day will take place on Wednesday, February 6, 2013.
Room change day allows residential students to change rooms by either going into a current vacancy or swapping with another resident without a roommate contract or mediation process.
Residents can only swap or change within their cohort (i.e. SYE for SYE, UCE for UCE) and first year students may only move within their FSP (generally the current floor a first year lives on) during the fall semester.
Students interested in participating in room change day should read the steps below for full details on how the entire process works.
Step 1: Check the vacancy list that will be posted below and on the board outside Eickhoff 114 on or about February 1 . Only spaces in doubles, triples, or quads (first-year only) will be available.
Step 2: Visit Residential Education and Housing in Eickhoff 114 to pick up a Room Change Request Form.
If you are moving into a vacant space, please only write in your name, PAWS ID, cell phone, and email address.
If you are swapping rooms, signatures are required by the people moving and their current roommate. Each student who wants to move needs to fill out their own form.
Step 3: If you are submitting a request to swap rooms with someone else, you may drop off the form anytime between Friday, February 1 and Wednesday, February 6 to Residential Education and Housing in Eickhoff 114. Any room swaps over the summer can be handled via e-mail.
If you are interested in moving into one of the posted vacancies, Residential Education and Housing will conduct a mini-lottery promptly at 10:30 AM. However, students can arrive beginning at 10:15 AM. The mini-lottery is not first-come, first-serve so there is no advantage to being the first one at our office. Full details will be explained once we are ready to begin the mini-lottery.
Step 4: If approved, students will receive a copy of their Room Change Form to the mailbox of their current assignment This form is needed to bring to the hall office of your current assignment to begin the room change process (only applies to Room Change Day in September and February). Students will move rooms between Friday, February 8 and Sunday, February 10.
