Room Changes

You may only change rooms with proper authorization from your hall coordinator or other professional staff member. Residents desiring a room change must submit a  Room Change Application online through your Housing Dashboard. Approval for room changes is at the discretion of the professional staff member. 

Generally, changes are only granted for specific reasons and during a designated window of time during the beginning of each semester.

Our apartments (Rainforest, RVA, and SRC Apartments) are all single occupancy bedrooms with shared common spaces. However, there are no singles in the traditional style buildings (Alvarado, Coronado, Hokona, or Santa Clara) and there are only female singles in the suite style buildings (Laguna DeVargas). You should consider requesting an apartment space if a single bedroom is very important to you.

It is free to apply for a room change. You will see a change in your semester housing bill if you choose a room type different than your current one. For more information about our semester rates and payments, visit our website here. 

You can move to any Residence Life and Student Housing property. This includes Alvarado, Coronado, Hokona, Laguna DeVargas, Lobo Rainforest, RVA Apartments, Santa Clara, or SRC Apartments.

Due to space, there is only one Room Change process this semester. Room change requests outside of this time must go through the Hall Coordinator.
