In the first three weeks of every semester the Office of Residence Life and Housing will inform all students without a roommate of the consolidation process. Students will have one week to complete their consolidation form and move (if applicable). The Office of Residence Life makes every attempt to give students an opportunity to select a roommate of their choosing. The university will also make every attempt to facilitate room consolidations; however, the obligation to find a new roommate and move lies with the student. If a student is not responsive or cannot choose a roommate the university will assign new rooms/ roommates and notify the student of their obligation to consolidate. If a student’s roommate moves out of the room, that student must be willing to accept another roommate or in some cases, students living alone in a double room may request, (for a fee), to make their room a private room. These situations will be handled on a case-by-case basis, depending on occupancy. If a student refuses to move or cooperate with the consolidation process they may automatically be charged the private room fee and may also be brought up on conduct charges.
Once classes have begun and in the event that your roommate never moves into the hall, or moves out during the year, one of three things may happen:
- Another roommate may be assigned to you, the room must have half of the room open and clean, anticipating a new roommate;
- You may be moved to another room where a vacancy exists, within three days of notification;
- You may remain alone in the room, provided that you agree to private room fees, depending on occupancy;
- You may elect to move to a single, depending on occupancy.
