Room Changes – Fall 2023

The Room Change Form will go live on Friday, September 1, at 10am.

Given the number of students who have requested campus housing we have a limited number of vacancies which reduces our ability to grant room change requests.

  • Current student with no roommate and would like to pull in a new roommate:

    • Wednesday, September 6 @ Noon – Deadline for students who have a current open room (no current roommate and would like to request a specific person to move into their open room.¬† Both students must complete the form.

    • Friday, September 8 @ 2:00 p.m. – If approved, will be notified and can begin moving into their new room.

    • Monday, September 11 @ Noon – Students must complete their room change/move.¬† Failure to move will result in forfeiting your new room location.

  • Room Changes and Room Swaps:

    • Wednesday, September 13 @ Noon – Deadline for students requesting a general room change to a new building or new room, and room swaps.¬† Both students involved in the swap must be in agreement and complete the form indicating they would like to swap spaces. If approved, you will receive additional information on when you will need to swap.¬†

    • Friday, September 15 @ 2:00 p.m. – If approved, students will be notified and can begin moving into their new room.

    • Monday, September 18 @ Noon – Students must complete their room change/move.¬† Failure to move will result in forfeiting your new room location.

Notification of a room change will be sent in an email to the student’s EKU email address, so those who have submitted a form should regularly check their email. Please do not move until you are emailed your new assignment.

Students who do not currently have a roommate should expect a new roommate at some point during the room change process. The other half of the room should remain ready to receive a roommate at all times even after the room change period concludes. This means that 1 bed, 1 desk, 1 dresser, and 1 closet should remain empty and free of belongings. Per the contract, the University reserves the right at any time to move the Resident to another room, assign a roommate, or assess an additional charge for single room occupancy. Additionally, students who do not have a roommate at the end of the room change process may be consolidated requiring them to move.

Submission of room change request is only a request for a room change and does not guarantee a change will be made. The request authorizes Housing & Residence Life to alter your assignment based on your indicated preferences. Housing & Residence Life will make every effort to accommodate a request if space allows.
