Room Swap

As students participate in room selection, availability of buildings and rooms changes frequently. If you would like a space other than the one you have selected, you may use the Room Swap function in the housing application to view available spaces and select a new one. Room Swap is available until the application closes. The next available opportunity to change bedspaces will be during room changes after the semester begins.
