  • Changing Rooms

    There are three room change periods for residence hall students (summer, fall and spring semester). Students may move within their existing building or to a new residence hall. Room changes are dependent on available spaces.

    Students living in apartments are unable to change apartments during their contract.  During apartment sign up for the following year, there is a transfer option where students can pick a different apartment.
