Room consolidation is required of any student with a vacancy in an under-assigned living unit. When a space becomes available in a room, that student has three options:
- move to another room with a vacancy
- accept a roommate who is also being required to consolidate
- buy out their vacant space from the Residence Life Office (See below for details)
If a student ignores or refuses attempted contacts for the purpose by the Residence Life Office, decisions about consolidation may be made at the discretion of the Residence Life Office. This may result in possible fines and conduct action.
If a student has a vacancy in his/her living unit, he or she may contract with the Residence Life Office for a double-as-single room rate at an additional cost of current room charges.
Priority for contracting for double-as-singles will be determined based on the waiting list of the Office, with consideration given to upperclassmen first.
Triples which are only occupied by two residents as the time of consolidation may be contracted as triples-as-doubles, provided that the space is available.
If a student ignores or refuses attempted contacts for this purpose by the Residence Life Office, decisions about consolidation may be made at the discretion of the Residence Life Office This may result in possible fines and conduct action.
Students living in College managed apartments are not required to consolidate.
During the year it may become necessary to assign new students or to move current residents to different spaces. If the student has not purchased the double room as a single (or triple as a double), but has occupied it alone for an extended period of time, a roommate can be assigned to the space at any time during the semester and the room must be ready to accommodate them at a moment’s notice.
