Room Changes

If you would like to request a room change, you may pick up a Room Change Request Card at the Office for Residence Life.

Room Change - Roommate Conflict

If you would like to request a room change due to a roommate conflict, you may pick up a Room Change Request card from the Office for Residence Life, however you will be required to get your RA's signature on the card to verify that you have discussed your situation with your RA.  Residence Life will not accept Room Change Request Cards from students desiring a room change due to a roommate conflict without the RA's signature.

Freshman Room Change Requests 

Students in triple room assignments will be given first preference for openings which become available in freshmen halls, if there are no serious roommate conflict situations pending.

Students with roommate conflicts, which cannot be resolved will be given high priority with regards to facilitating room change requests.

After detripling requests and roommate problems have been accommodated, students looking for room upgrades will be given preference in the order their Room Change Request Cards are received.

Upperclass Room Change Requests

Students with roommate conflicts, which cannot be resolved will be given high priority with regards to facilitating room change requests.

After requests from students experiencing roommate problems have been accommodated, students looking for room upgrades will be given preference in the order of the date their Room Change Request Cards are received.

Note:

  • We do not process Room Change Requests based on the time a card was submitted.  We review all cards processed on a specific date and give all equal consideration.
  • Students do not have to accept a room change offered to them by the Office for Residence Life, if it is not what they desire.  If a student declines a room change, the student will not lose his/her place in order.
  • Upper-class/transfer students residing at Kaul Hall will be given the same preference, as other upper-class residents with regards to room change requests (please see above).
  • The Office for Residence Life cannot predict when or if we will be able to accommodate your room change request.  All changes are dependent on the number of vacancies confirmed after move-in and any housing cancellations that come up throughout the year. If we have not contacted you by phone, we do not have anything to offer you.  If you have questions regarding your room change request, please contact marie.schauder@villanova.edu.

Moving Assistance

Moving assistance can be coordinated by the Office of Residence Life through a local moving company.  Prices range from $100-$200, depending on the extent of the move. Moving assistance is available at no charge for Freshmen who are moving out of a converted triple room.  Please contact Jenniifer Fleckenstein for more information or to coordinate a move on a weekday when the movers are on campus.
