The Office of Residential Life seeks maximum occupancy throughout the year. In the event that a vacancy arises in your room, you should expect a new roommate at any time. You will not be notified in advance. If you discourage or fail to accept an assigned roommate, you may be subject to disciplinary action that may include termination of your Housing Agreement. Examples of discouragement include obvious/subtle verbal statements or occupying a greater area than your assigned space.
The beginning of the spring semester is a time when a large number of new assignments are made. If you have a vacancy in your room, be sure the space is clean and available before you leave for winter break. If the space is not ready for another occupant, staff will arrange to move your belongings, at your expense, to make space for the new resident. Failure to comply may result in disciplinary action including restitution.
