Your opportunity to request a room change for the Fall semester has arrived! Students may download & print the Room Change Request form at http://barnard.edu/reslife/roomchanges/. Completed forms are due to the Residential Life & Housing office (110 Sulzberger) no later than 1pm on Monday, September 21.
This is your only opportunity to request a room change until the Spring Room Change Request Process (forms for which will be available in late November).
Students who submit a Room Change Request form are expected to inform their roommate(s)/suitemates(s) of their request, in order to give them an opportunity to either submit a Room Change form of their own or to recruit a new roommate/suitemate. Residential Life & Housing will not notify students if their roommate/suitemate submits a request form.
Priority for room changes is both by class year and/or for students who received an assignment from the Wait List. Please note that “buying out your room” (paying the single room rate to keep a double to yourself) is not an option for the Fall semester.
WHAT IF THERE IS A VACANCY IN MY ROOM/SUITE OR MY ROOMMATE/SUITEMATE GETS A ROOM CHANGE?
You will more than likely be assigned a new roommate/suitemate. If you would like to recruit a new roommate/suitemate, they should submit a Room Change Form requesting your room/suite and you should submit a Roommate/Suitemate Request form (available at http://barnard.edu/reslife/roomchanges/) to the RL&H Office no later than 1pm on Monday, September 21, mutually requesting them. The names and signatures of all roommates and/or suitemates must be on the form. No late forms will be accepted. Also, please note that not all applicants will receive a room change (so your roommate/suitemate may not get a room change and create a vacancy).
If a space remains open in your room/suite after the Fall Room Change process is completed, you must continue to keep this space open and ready for occupancy at any time. Vacancies may be used later in the semester for emergency/temporary room changes and/or relocation of the healthy roommates of sick students.
