Room Change Process
The Office of Community Engagement strives to provide every student with a safe, welcoming community, and that includes each student’s room. If you are having a problem with your room or your roommate, please see your Residence Coordinator first.
All students must speak with their Residence Coordinator (RC) prior to requesting any room changes from the Office of Community Engagement. In cases of an issue with health or safety, a Residence Coordinator or other Community Engagement staff member may inform you of a temporary or emergency room change.
Once a room assignment has been made, students have two options for changing rooms. These options are: requesting a room change or identifying another student to conduct a direct room swap. Please reference the billing and dining policies regarding room changes.
Room Change Request
There are no student moves allowed during the first two weeks of the semester.
Room changes can be requested by emailing CEG@purchase.edu. After a room change request is received, the office of community engagement will communicate with the appropriate Residence Coordinators within the areas where a change will take place. No request is guaranteed and is only approved after an official confirmation email is received by the student from the Office of Community Engagement.
Students may directly swap rooms with each other only after making an official request to the Office of Community Engagement. Students who swap rooms without permission will receive a fine for improper room change. After a room swap request is received, the Office of Community Engagement will communicate with the appropriate Residence Coordinators within the areas where a swap will take place. No request is guaranteed and is only approved after an official confirmation email is received by the student from the Office of Community Engagement.
Students can request room swaps by emailing our office at CEG@purchase.edu Both students requesting to swap must email our office.
Once a request for a room swap is received, the Office of Community Engagement will confirm that both students are eligible to live in the requested area.
