Room Consolidation

As you may be aware, we experienced an overwhelming demand for on-campus housing this year. At the start of the fall semester, we tend to have a waitlist of students who we were not able to accommodate and jeopardized their ability to attend classes.

The Housing License Agreement provides opportunities to help these students by using the process of consolidation to create more spaces. Consolidation is the act of reassigning residents from one space into another when specific situations occur including the following:

  • 50% or less occupancy in a suite, apartment, and/or bedroom.
  • Safety
  • Administrative needs

Our goal is to keep you and your roommate together when consolidating spaces but that is not always possible. During the semester, most consolidations will happen during the 3rd week of the semester and/or during the break period.

By utilizing consolidation, we are able to create spaces that will help students on the waiting list. Student Housing and Residence Life will work to communicate effectively and timely with you should your room/apartment qualify to be consolidated. In the meantime, if there is a vacant bed space in your room/apartment, please make sure to leave the space open for a new assignment and avoid the charge for occupying 2 spaces at once.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to visit with your Resident Assistant (RA) or Residence Life Coordinator (RLC) or feel free to visit the Housing office in Lassen Hall.
