Private Room Fee and Consolidation Policy
Based on availability and with the
approval of the Office of Residence Life, a student may request and occupy a
double room as a single by payment of 150 percent of the rate for that room.
The student will be guaranteed single occupancy only by the payment of this
private room fee. Once approved, the private room fee will apply to every term
remaining in the current academic year. It may be deleted only if a roommate is
Residents who do not have a roommate
at the start of the fall or spring semester and who have not requested a
private room will be required to consolidate with another resident who also
does not have a roommate. The Office of Residence Life will make available
lists of other students in rooms without a roommate to assist in this process.
In the fourth week of classes, the private room fee will be charged to all
residents remaining in a double room as a single.
Should a resident lose his/her
roommate after the fourth week of classes, he/she will be allowed to remain in
the room as a single for the remainder of that term only without paying the
private room fee. The vacant space remains available to the Office of Residence
Life for assignment to any student needing housing at any time, and the
resident may not reject any roommate assigned. The resident may be required to
move to another room where a single vacancy exists at any time the Office of
Residence Life has need for the current room as a double vacancy. Any student
occupying a double room as a single, for any reason, will be charged the
private room fee unless otherwise determined by the Director of Residence Life.
