Roommate Concerns:

Can I change room assignments and/or roommates? Yes. However, we strongly encourage students to wait at least 3 weeks before requesting any room changes. Direct these requests to the Residence Hall Director.

What if I have a roommate conflict? Contact your Hall Director located in their residence hall or the Resident Assistant living on your floor. They will assist with any roommate conflicts.

What If someone steals something out of my residence hall room, how can I be reimbursed for the replacement costs? Students are strongly encouraged to obtain insurance from an independent insurance carrier; this can include your own homeowners insurance to cover any losses of personal possessions in the residence hall. Neither the University nor Housing and Residence Life are responsible for any damages or losses to personal property in residence halls.

Why didn’t I get my requested roommate? If the roommate you requested has delayed or failed to complete the housing application process after the application period, the application may not be in the pool during the assignment phase.  The completed application consists of completing the housing application on-line and paying the application.

Housing Cost and Additional Fees:

What is the cost of Housing? The cost per Residence Hall may vary based on room or style preference.  Our current rate sheets can be found on the housing website. 

What do we do if furniture in the room is missing or damaged?  Students should complete a room condition report at check-in.  This form allows staff to follow-up with any missing or damaged items; failure to report damages or missing furniture does not excuse charges.  After check-in, students can go to the housing website and submit a maintenance request.  Urgent or emergency requests should immediately be reported to Residence Hall Staff on duty.

When are students required to leave the residence halls? Residence halls are closed three times during the academic year. Holiday Break in December, Spring Break in March, and closed for the summer in May. ALL students must leave the residence halls during these times.  See the housing calendar for specific dates and times.

Choice of Residence Hall: 

Why didn’t I get my first choice of residence halls? Housing assignments are based on the “First come-first served” principle. The earlier you complete and turn in your housing application and $150 application fee, the more likely you will receive your housing preference.  Housing preference is never a guarantee!

Can I change my assignment to another residence hall? A transfer may be requested at any time. However room changes will not be available until the third week of classes.

What is the difference between a single, double, double deluxe and a private? A single room consists of one person in a room and student shares a bathroom with four to five other residents living within the suite. A double room consists of two people living in the same room. (Traditional Doubles- share a bathroom on the same hall, Suite Style Doubles-share a bathroom within a suite.) A double deluxe consists of two people living in the same room with a bathroom inside the room. A private room consists of one person living in a room with a private bathroom.
