Room Change Process

Throughout the semester, residents express interest in changing buildings/ rooms to find an assignment that best meets their housing needs.  Below are the steps for navigating the Room Change Process.

  • Navigate to the Housing Portal through TruView
  • Click on Room Change Process (at the top).
  • Follow the instructions to identify a room you are interested in moving to.
  • If you select a completely open room, you must have a roommate move into that space with you.  Both you and your new roommate will need to submit a “Room Change Request” form before a room change is processed.  Completely open rooms are not available for Buy-out (BO).  If you wish to select a buyout room, search for a Buyout (BO) space in the housing portal; Buyout (BO) spaces are listed as a room type on the “Rooms Availability” page.
  • Connect with the current occupant(s) to ensure the roommate match will meet your housing needs.
    • If the room is listed as a Buy-out or completely empty and you want to buy-out, you will not need to contact a current occupant.
    • If the room is empty and you want to bring a roommate, you both need to submit this form.
  • Complete and submit a Room Change Request

NOTE: Residents that initiate room changes without approval from Residence Life will be referred through the conduct process.

Spring 2021 room changes reopen on January 11, 2021, at 8 am.

The beginning of the semester tends to see a high volume of requests submitted.  Please allow a couple of days for processing.  A Residence Life staff member will contact you with any questions, concerns, or updates regarding your Room Change Request.
