Room Change and Room Buyout Information

Beginning Monday, January 26 at 1 p.m., the room freeze period will be lifted for the spring semester for students interested in changing rooms. Additionally, if not every bed is assigned in your room, you have the option of contracting for a "buyout", securing the room only for yourself by paying an additional prorated cost.  A room buyout is the creation of revised room occupancy (based on availability) and is in effect for the remainder of the spring semester only. For more information about either process, or to initiate either a room change or room buyout, please speak with your Residence Hall Director.
