In-Semester Change Processes

Current On-Campus Students with an assignment

Students who are interested in changing their housing assignment have several options that they can use, which are outlined below.  Since different spaces across campus are billed at different rates, students are strongly encouraged to review our Housing Costs page before securing a new assignment.  If a student secures a new space that is billed at a new rate, the base room fee will be adjusted on their Bursar bill within ten days.

Online Room Selection

Students who are seeking vacancies across campus can use the online room selection process.  Students can request an appointment in SPIRE during the appointment request periods outlined below.  The spaces in Online Room Selection will come from other students who have canceled their assignment.  Online Room Selection allows students to see the available options across campus and select the space they most prefer.  Students who request an appointment and do not select an assignment will remain in their current space.  The timeline for Spring In-Semester Room Selection is below:

Appointment Request: February 2 - February 5
Appointments Post: February 7 by 3pm
Room Selection: February 8 - February 9 at 4pm
Must complete move to new space by February 11 at 11pm

To request an appointment for Online Room Selection, navigate to Housing > Room Selection > Room Selection Home in SPIRE and click the 'Request a New Appointment' button during the appointment request period.

Person-for-Person Swap
Students can use the Room Swap process to exchange like assignments (ex. shared room to shared room, single to a single within the same hall, apartment to apartment).  Students who are interested in swapping can do so on Thursday or Friday from February 8 through February 16.  This process is completed in SPIRE under Housing>Room Assignment Changes>Room Swap.  When a student initiates a swap request, the person they intend to swap with will receive an email.  Once both students have approved the swap, the assignment is automatically updated.  Any students who are reassigned will have until Sunday to complete their move.  Students must also properly exchange keys by going to their Residential Service Desks.  Failure to exchange keys through the service desk will result in a $100 Lock Recore Fee.

Roommate Pull-In
Roommate Pull-In Form
Students who have a confirmed vacancy in their room are able to pull a preferred on-campus student into their room.  In order to be pulled in, the student must be eligible for the space.  For example, a senior could not be pulled into a space in a first year residence hall.  Students who wish to complete a pull-in can complete a Google form that will become available here starting on February 2 and through February 15.  On February 8 and February 15, all matched pull-in requests will be updated in SPIRE.  The pulled in student will have until Sunday to properly check out of their current assignment and complete their move into the new room.

Please Note: Residential Life reserves the right to assign students to vacant spaces at any point.  Prior to considering available options, Residential Life will review and take into consideration any completed, matched Pull-In Requests.

Current Students without a Housing Assignment

Current students who do not currently hold a housing assignment can walk into Residential Life Assignments located in 235 Whitmore to seek an on-campus assignment.  Please note that most available vacant spaces will be shared rooms with a roommate.
