The new housing plans prioritize student safety and that of our community while also allowing our students to be able to live together in a community and study on and near our campus. With our new density plans to meet the recommendations provided by the American College Health Association, opportunities to change rooms will be very limited and only considered on a case by case basis.
The Room Change form is currently unavailable for submitting requests. Please read below for the room change process for the 2020-2021 academic year. If you are looking to request a room change, you can begin the first week of October by following the procedures below.
- Please contact your RCD by email to set up a virtual meeting to talk about the reason for your request.
- Following your meeting, your RCD will determine if your request will be approved and, if approved, share options available.
- If your request is not approved, you will remain in your current residential space and receive resources for how to best navigate the reasons for your request.
Residents who receive a room change, will be required to complete the following:
- As the resident who is leaving and moving into another space where someone already resides, you will be required to complete a new living agreement prior to moving into the space. This should be completed virtually in order to support physical distancing.
- Students leaving will be provided with a maximum of three (3) available housing options. In most cases, only one option will be available. Students leaving will have 48 hours to make a decision and should check their wustl email. There will be no opportunities to formally meet with residents residing in presented options.
- Should you accept the room change offer, this will be finalized. More steps will be provided to transition to your new space following the decision. Should you not accept the room change offer, you will remain in your current residential space and receive resources for how to best navigate the reasons for your request.
Residents who remain in the space following a room change, it is important that the remaining resident is aware of policy regarding your residential space.
- Residential Life owns all residential spaces. Residential Life reserves the right to fill all spaces as needed and does not need permission to fill a vacant space. Residential Life will provide notification should a change occur, but will not require a meeting in order to fill a vacant space.
- Your residential space is now available to Residential Life to fill as needed. Keep all vacant spaces clear in the event that we will need to fill the space. (This will only apply to single rooms for the 2020-2021 academic year).
- Should a resident receive a new roommate, you will be required to complete a new living agreement prior to them moving into the space. This should be completed virtually in order to support physical distancing.
- Residential Life reserves the right to fill vacant spaces when needed. Should the current resident of a space not want a roommate and be responsible for creating a purposefully unwelcoming environment, the resident will be referred to the Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards. One potential consequence for this behavior could be being released from their housing contract.
