If we are able to grant a room change, you will be assessed a fee of $15. Please note that triple residents will not be charged.
Please note that we have limited space to make room changes. If you are experiencing challenges in your living situation, please follow up with your RA or UA for assistance.
When can I apply for a room change?
We will accept applications starting Friday, September 14, 2012 at 10:00am.
How do you decide who gets a room change?
We look at our applicants and our vacancies to see who we are able to assist. This depends on the type of vacancy (residence hall vs. apartment) as well as the gender of the space available. We will process room changes in the order in which they are received.
I am a first-year student. Can I apply for a single room?
You can request this, but please know that first-year students typically live in double or triple rooms. We will offer single rooms to sophomores, juniors, and seniors first.
If I accept a room change, how do I manage the move?
If you accept a room change, you have 48 hours to move to your new assignment. You will need to come to the Office of Residential Life to complete paperwork and to have your ID card encoded. You are responsible for moving your belongings.
There is a vacant room on my floor. How can I move in?
There are a few vacancies because some students have decided not to return for the fall semester. We plan to offer these vacancies to students on the room change list.
I applied for a room change last semester. Do I need to apply again?
No. We still have your application and will offer you a room change when we have a vacancy available.
There is a specific room I want to move to. How can I make a room change?
Please complete the form and indicate in your application the room you are interested in.
Is this room change application only for the residence halls or is it apartments?
The room change application is for both residence halls and apartments.
How will I know if I get a room change?
We will contact you via Skidmore email to make an offer.
