Mid-Semester and Late Assignments
The first two weeks of each semester will be used to settle occupancy confirmation and room availability. After this process, unassigned spaces will be used to house students on the waiting list. Room changes are not recommended at this time. Please remember that:

~ Deposits are due at contract signing

~ Mid-semester or late assignment move-ins and room changes will be scheduled Wednesday thru Friday

~ Waitlisted students must respond to a housing offer within three (3) business days

~ Mid-semester or late assignments will be prorated to the scheduled move-in date

~ Mid-semester withdrawals and Change of Status will not be pro-rated

Waiting Lists
Residence Life maintains three separate and distinct waiting lists:

~ New/first year students

~ Returning students

The Admissions Office forwards their housing waiting lists to the Office of Residence Life at the beginning of each semester. Residence Life adds those names to the appropriate waiting list.

Room Changes
The Office of Residence Life believes that part of the educational process for resident students is living in community. However, roommate conflicts are bound to arise as students matriculate through college. While empowering students through conflict mediation, the Office of Residence Life hopes that students and parents are open to these steps that are engineered to engender not only the mission of the university but also equip students with life skills necessary for success. Residence Life conducts most room changes during breaks of the academic year and at the end of each semester. Room changes are not recommended the first two weeks of the semester.


Routinely, these are the steps preceding a room change:

~ Resident Assistant(s) lead a conversation with occupants to complete or revisit Roommate Agreement.

~ Residence Life Coordinator mediates conflict between residents and a Roommate Contract is drafted. At this meeting, students, aided by professionals, develop long term and short term solutions to on-going conflict.

~ Conflicting residents will meet with Residence Life Coordinator and Director of Residence Life to discuss the possibility of a room change.

~ Sophomore Housing: Greccio House 3 in LLC I will house sophomore students next fall and focus on academic enrichment and support as well as social and spiritual development.
