As a general policy, the Housing Office does not process housing change requests for the first six weeks of the semester. It has been our experience that students are apt to judge another person too quickly or harshly, and thus assess their situation incompletely. Requiring that students work through the situation in order to live peaceably for the first six weeks often gives them the time and space to see another from a more understanding and reasonable perspective.
The Housing Office will certainly field any housing change requests, but will strongly encourage the students to incorporate their RA and/or RD into the conflict resolution process. Our staff is trained with an ability to offer insight and mediation skills.
After talking to Residence Life personnel, students are welcome to submit a Room Change Request.
