All students planning to live in University housing during any portion of Interterm must apply for Interterm housing by completing the Interterm Application on MyHousing. No residents are to arrive/check in prior to Opening Day except by permission from the Housing Office. There is no specific room change period offered during the academic year. All requests for a room change must be approved by the relevant Residence Life staff member and by the Housing Manager. The needs of each resident and the particulars of each situation will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Approval is not guaranteed. If you make an unauthorized change, you will be charged a minimum of $100.00 and may be required to return to your original Housing Assignment. Each year, in the event the University deems it necessary to accommodate new incoming students, rooms will be designated as three-to-a-room occupancy. The Housing Office reserves the right to assign any third person to any designated triple room in the event one or more of the original roommates leaves the room assignment. A discounted triple occupancy room rate will apply to all rooms with three occupants at the time of semester billing February 15 and is valid through the end of that semester. Residents of rooms with fewer than three occupants at the time of semester billing February 15 will be billed the double-occupancy room rate for the semester, even though the rooms are designated as triple rooms. All furnishings in triple rooms must remain in the rooms. Should the room revert to double occupancy, the third set of furniture will be removed by Auxiliary Services personnel at the request of the remaining residents.
