Open Room Changes, Room Buyouts, and Consolidations

The Office of College Housing would like to announce that Open Room Changes and Room Buyouts have begun. This gives students the ability to move to any open bed on campus. If space is available, students may also have the opportunity to buyout a double room as a single. To start this process, students must meet with their Residence Director (RD) during their posted office hours to discuss their options. Please note, students are not permitted to move or swap rooms during Open Room Changes and Room Buyouts without getting approval from their RD. 

Pending on the move, there may be an increase or decrease in the cost of housing. Students are encourages to review the Room Rates prior to completing any move. Information on room rates can be found on our Housing Costs page.

During open room changes and buyouts, students will be given an Acknowledgement of Room Assignment Change form that outlines the process that must be followed. This form must be completed within 48 hours (2 business days) of starting the form. 

All moves must be completed by 8:00 pm on Wednesday, February 8. 

During Open Room Changes and Room Buyouts, RDs will also be consolidating room and/or suites depending on the vacancies that are present. Students may be required to move from their room or accept a new roommate depending on the RDs plan for the building. More information on room consolidations can be found on our Room Selection page.

Please contact Residential Service at 607-587-4371 or if you have any questions.
