Washington Center

Mediation and Room Change

Room Changes

Room changes occur based on the referral of a coordinator, the Director of Student Services (DSS), and/or the logistical needs of the Center. You may contact a coordinator in person or by email to discuss a room change, in most cases a roommate/apartment mediation meeting will need to occur before a referral will be made. Residential Services will not accept room change requests earlier than two weeks after your orientation date.

Room changes based on requests are final; therefore, it is important that you follow the mediation process outlined above to resolve conflicts. We work hard to create apartments with groups of students that match based on roommate preferences, so it is not guaranteed that a room change would place you in a more ideal situation.

To request a room change, you must:

1. Contact a coordinator and explain your request.

2. Discuss/Complete the mediation process with a coordinator. After which the coordinator will provide a referral for a room change (as necessary) directly to the DSS.

3. Follow the instructions provided by the DSS once a referral has been received.

If a room change is approved the DSS will explain how and when the room change will occur. Please note that very few spaces are available throughout the building and not all room change requests can be granted.
