Winter Break Room Changes

You are here

Winter Break Room Change Quick Facts:

  • Students may make a room change request during winter break on Wednesday, December 21 or Thursday, December 22
  • Winter break room changes MUST be completed on January 3 or 4
  • No room changes are available into single room or completely vacant rooms in winter break housing buildings (Beall, Centennial Court C & D, Clark, Engleman, Koonce, Leebrick, McDowell and Wright Halls)
  • Due to renovations, the Korb Hall elevator will be off-line during winter break and will not be available for use during winter break room changes

Students will be able to schedule and facilitate a room change during the December Winter Break, provided they are NOT attempting to do a room change into a single room or a completely vacant room in one of the break residence halls (vacant rooms Beall, Centennial Court C & D, Clark, Engleman, Koonce, Leebrick, McDowell and Wright Halls will be used for students needing to live on campus during winter break).

On Wednesday, December 21, 2016 or Thursday, December 22, 2016 from 8am until 5pm, students wishing to schedule a winter break room change should call 330-672-3244 to speak with a staff member.  Please note that we anticipate a high number of phone calls and room changes are processed on a first come first served basis based on when the student speaks directly with the staff processing room changes – meaning, rooms cannot be held nor is a ‘waiting list’ maintained. Requests for room changes will only be taken on December 21 and 22.

If the room change is approved, the student must immediately schedule an appointment with staff to return to campus to physically change rooms and complete paperwork.  All winter break room change appointments must be completed on January 3 or 4 between 8am and 5pm (the last appointment each day will be scheduled for a 3pm start time).  If a student is unable to return to campus on one of these days, they will not be able to request a winter break room change.  We are not able to hold a room nor do we maintain waiting lists for rooms. 

At the time of their room change appointment: Students will have 2 hours from their scheduled appointment start-time to complete the room change. Students are not provided time to “set up” their new room during this appointment, only to vacate their previous room and move their belongings into their new location.

Students will need to bring a form of picture identification (license or KSU ID will suffice) as well as their old room key to return.  Please note that no room changes will be processed without picture identification and failure to return your previous room key at the time of your appointment will result in an unreturned/lost key charge.

Any scheduled room change not completed by the end of the business day on Wednesday, January 4 will be canceled, and the student will need to wait to attempt the room change until the Spring Semester room freeze has lifted to request a new room change.
