Winter Break Room Changes

Winter Break Room Change:


I am interested in a potential winter break room change

  • Students will need to be able to return to campus on December 18-20 in order to complete a winter break room change.
  • Winter break room changes are subject to the availably of opens spaces at the time of the request (rooms cannot be held nor is a waiting list maintained).


Students will be able to schedule and facilitate a room change during the December Winter Break.


Students may indicate interest a potential winter break room change by filling out the survey linked above. Submitting interest will not guarantee a winter break room change. Beginning at 10:00 am on December 18, 2017, residence hall directors will call students to discuss the possibility of a winter break room change. Based on the details of the room change the student is interested in and available locations, a winter break room change request may be available. The availability of a winter break room change is based on when the student speaks directly with the staff processing room changes – meaning, rooms cannot be held nor is a ‘waiting list’ maintained.

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. 


At the time of their room change appointment: Students will have 2 hours from their schedule 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 assignment.

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.

All Winter Break room change requests must be initiated and/or completed by 5 pm on Wednesday, December 20, 2018. If not completed by this date, the room change will be canceled and the student will need to wait to attempt the room change until the Spring Semester room freeze has lifted.
