Housing Move Request Form
The Move Request Form is for individuals requesting to move rooms or requesting their current room as a private. Due to the large number of students on campus, we are very limited on the ability to grant private rooms. There are three options for a move request:
Requesting to move inside their current residential college
Requesting to moving to another residential college
Requesting to move to a private or buyout their room as a private (may not be available in every building). Again, we have limited ability on granting privates in any buildings.
Once the form is complete, a staff member of your current hall will be in contact with you to discuss your desire to move. Moves will be approved on a weekly basis. If you have questions about the status of your move, please contact the Housing Office.
