Room Consolidation

Residential and Commuter Life strives to provide all students with a space to build connections and improve campus operations for the benefit of the student. As such, the office works to identify vacancies to consolidate residential spaces.

Consolidation is residential reassignment that occurs in response to a specific situation, including the following:

  • Open space in a bedroom
  • Administrative need

The expectations for this process will be communicated the 4th week of the semester and moves will start shortly thereafter. For rooms that are identified as part of the room consolidation process, multiple resolutions are available. These may include:

  • Student will be moved to a different room
  • Student will welcome a new resident to their space
  • Student(s) will provide a specific roommate request

In the meantime, if there is a vacant space, please make sure to leave the space open for a new roommate.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact

Note: Residential and Commuter Life (RCL) reserves the right to consolidate vacancies and/or reassign students, if necessary, for the most effective use of residential spaces. RCL will work with students involved in the consolidation process to determine the best option for them.
