December Room Change request forms are available to download now from http://barnard.edu/reslife/roomchanges/december.html. Forms are due to the Res Life Office no later than 1pm on Wed, Dec 8.
If a vacancy opens up in your double or triple, you may submit a request to "Buy-Out" that space (and not get a new roommate). The Buy-Out Request form may be downloaded from http://barnard.edu/reslife/roomchanges/december.html and is due to the Res Life Office no later than 1pm on Wed, Dec 8. Otherwise, the vacancy will likely be filled through a room change or by a new spring student.
Please note that a request to buy-out a room is *NOT* a guarantee. Due to the large number of new students to assign for the Spring semester, students in buildings closer to the center of campus (600s, ELL, SUT) will be *far less likely* to get a buy-out than in buildings further from the center of campus (110th St, CG). Students whose top priority is to be in a room without a roommate are encouraged to additionally request a room change to a single room.
If a vacancy opens up in your room/suite, you may encourage a friend to request the space through a Room Change Request or by specifying your room/suite on their housing application (i.e. students returning from abroad, readmitted, etc). You will need to submit a Roommate/Suitemate Request Form (http://barnard.edu/reslife/roomchanges/Roommate_Suitemate_Request_Form.pdf) mutually requesting your friend, no later than 1pm on Wed, Dec 8.
60+ visiting international students will be coming this Spring from Australia, Denmark, Italy, China, South Korea, Singapore, Ghana, and South Africa. If you have a space opening up in your room/suite and would like to request one of these students, please email email@example.com.
