You have questions. We have answers.
We understand that sometimes roommates can't live together harmoniously, but before you request a room change from the Front Desk, please contact your Resident Advisor to help with the situation. To best prepare yourself for living with someone else, please see our tips and tricks for living with roommates.
Please note that there is a room change freeze for the first month of classes each term (September and January).
