Room Change Process

Fall Room Change approvals will only be permitted between September 3, 2018 - November 3, 2018. Please review and complete the following steps regarding your move request.  


Step 1 
If there is a conflict, residents must first attempt to resolve the matter between themselves. 

Step 2
If residents are unable to resolve a conflict on their own, they must work with their RA/LRA who will then facilitate a mediation in hopes of resolving the issue(s). 

Step 3
If the conflict cannot be resolved or should a resident have other questions regarding the room change process, they may schedule an appointment with their RLC. Appointments can be arranged by visiting The Valley Terraces Housing Office. 

Step 4
At your appointment, your RLC will assess the situation. If it is agreed that your move is appropriate, the RLC will provide a room change notification form for you to complete. 

Step 5
Residents must then return the completed form to The Terrace Center Housing Office.

Step 6
Once approved, your RLC will send you an email confirming your move and provide you with additional information regarding the room change process. 

Note the following:
• Moving out prior to room change approval is prohibited and may result in conduct action.
• A resident may be moved at their RLCs discretion.
• Some bed spaces may appear to be vacant, however they may not always be available.

• Clear out all of your belongings from your room/suite and move them to your NEW room.

• Complete the “Move-In” section of the blank RCR given to you in Step 1.

• Clean your OLD room and all common areas (dust, vacuum, wipe down counters, etc.).

• If possible, arrange your furniture back to its original location.

Your room should look like it did when you first moved in!

Step 3
At your scheduled appointment time, your RA will meet you at your old room to assess any damages of the space.

Step 4
Your RA will escort you to your respective Housing Office to do the following:
