Over-Occupancy Housing

Read Important Note

If the resident student population for Eastern University is above the number of spaces we have on campus, students who submit their Housing Deposit late may be placed in an Over-Occupancy Room. These rooms may be intended as doubles but for the time being are placed as triple spaces. These students will be able to move into a traditional size room if one becomes available. 

During the first week of school, students in over-occupancy rooms will receive a letter from the Housing Office through their University email account. This letter will ask the student if they would like to be moved to a standard room if one becomes available. If a student does not respond, he or she will forfeit both the opportunity to move AND any credit. 

If an offer to move into a standard room is not emailed by mid-September, the student's account will be credited with an "occupancy credit" of $125.00. If an offer to move into a standard size room has not been placed in campus mail by the beginning of October, a second "occupancy credit" of $125.00 will be applied to the student's account.

Please rest assured that the Housing Office will do everything possible to make timely room changes. Residents who choose to stay in an over-occupancy room after being offered a move to a standard room forfeit the occupancy credit. Over-occupancy credit also does not apply if any roommate leaves the room.
