No hall/room move requests will be accepted after December 1, 2017.

Students requesting to change their hall/room must contact their Hall Director (HD) and follow their instructions. All students affected by the room change must agree to the change.

Options for Moving (If your request is approved)

  1. Move as soon as the space you are moving into is available, or
  2. Move on December 22 between 10am and Noon, or
  3. Take all of your belongings home during break (this means you would check out of your current room before you leave, then move into your new room after the break).

Approval to move will be rescinded if:

  • You do not complete your move before Noon on December 22, or
  • You do not check out of your current room before leaving campus for break.

Room moves will not be done during the winter break. After the spring semester room freeze is lifted during spring semester, students will be able to work with their Hall Directors in regards to room move requests.
