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, Residential and Student Life 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 Residential and Student Life .

Room Swap

Students may directly swap rooms with each other only after making an official request to Residential and Student Life. Students who swap rooms without permission will receive a fine for improper room change. After a room swap request is received, Residential and Student Life 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 Residential and Student Life.

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, Residential and Student Life will confirm that both students are eligible to live in the requested area.
