Room Consolidation Information

The Office of College Housing will be conducting room consolidations between September 8 and September 12. When vacancies occur in any residence hall in a double room creating a 'single,' the college will request the remaining student to take a new roommate or move to another room. Please note, if you have bought out your double room as a single you will not be requested to take a roommate or move to another room.
