The Office of Residence Life believes that a vital component of the co-curricular, residential experience includes the opportunity for students to live with one another in community. During the course of the semester, it is possible that students assigned to multi-resident rooms may find themselves without a roommate or may find that their current living situation has begun to negatively impact their Elmhurst experience. In order to minimize the effect of these occurrences, the Office of Residence Life offers students the ability to initiate mutual room changes three times during the academic year. All room changes must be approved by the Assistant Director of Administration and Assignments. Students with questions about the room change process should contact the RLC or AD of their building. To participate, if eligible, fill out the Room Change Request Form, secure all the necessary signatures and turn in to the appropriate professional staff member. The form may be accessed through MyHousing accessible at the College portal my.elmhurst.edu.
Directions are posted in early September.
Current resident room changes for January Term will occur in December prior to the end of Fall Term.
The spring room change date is only available for residents who received a new assignment or roommate due to housing changes initiated by the Office of Residence Life. This date occurs after the two-week freeze period at the beginning of Spring Term.
If you wish to change rooms outside of established Room Change events, contact your Assistant Director or Residence Life Coordinator for proper procedures. All room changes must be approved by the AD/RLC.
