Changes to Room or Roommate

Sometimes, despite everyone's best efforts, room selections may not work out.  Given room availability, residents have the option of changing rooms or buildings starting the second week of each semester.  Residents who are considering changing rooms are asked to contact the building Resident Director, Graduate Community Coordinator or Assistant Director for Residence Life for more information and assistance.

Please note that students who are housed in Albright/Benton, Black Rock, Water Rock, and Shining Rock are only permitted to make room changes within and between these halls.

Room changes are dependent upon room availability.

Single of Double Occupancy Room

Double rooms that are occupied by one person are not to be treated as private rooms. Residents can only occupy one half of the room and should be prepared for another student to be assigned to the room at any time.  Double rooms occupied by a single person will be inspected regularly and residents will be fined if they are found to be occupying the entire room.
