Subject: VACANCIES IN DOUBLES, LODGES, SUITES AND APARTMENTS
It is important that if you have a space available in your double, lodge, apartment, or suite that you read the information below.
If there is a vacant space in your double, lodge, apartment or suite, you have two options:
- Do nothing. The Office of Housing and Residential Education may assign the space to a student seeking a room change. New roommates should be treated with courtesy and respect. They have contractual rights to their new assignments. New roommates can be assigned at any point throughout the semester.
- You may consolidate with another student living on-campus by having another student move to your room or by moving to a vacant space in another student’s room. If you would like to move and fill a vacancy in a friend’s room, please complete the room change request by Wednesday, January 16, 2019 at 5PM. Please note that once the move is approved the student moving must completely vacate their current room, check out of their current room with an RA, and move to their new assignment by Sunday, January 20, 2019 at 6PM CST. Failure to do so may result in the loss of the room change and the assignment of the vacant space to another student. We cannot permit a student to “tie up” two spaces (their old and new assignments) during this critical period.
