Housing Consolidation


University housing is in high demand and we strive to provide as many students as possible with the opportunity to live on-campus. The University routinely identifies vacancies that can be offered to continuing students on waiting lists or new students preparing to join our campus. However, in order to make the best use of space, we first provide current residents with the opportunity to participate in the Room Consolidation process.

Consolidation is the process of reassigning residents from one space into another when specific situations occur, including the following:

Room Consolidation occurs after the 3rd week of the quarter, once assessment of room vacancies is completed, and may continue through winter quarter. Residents in shared rooms (doubles, triples and quads) that qualify for consolidation may be offered different options depending on the circumstances and the needs of the community. Those options may include:

*roommate requests will be honored during this process, if possible

Housing staff will work to communicate effectively and timely with you should your room/apartment qualify to be consolidated. In the meantime, if there is a vacant space in your room/apartment, please make sure to leave the space open for a new assignment.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact your Housing Coordinator.

Note: The Colleges, Housing and Educational Services (CHES) reserves the right to consolidate vacancies and/or reassign students, if necessary, for the most effective use of housing and community space. Housing/residential staff work with students involved in the consolidation process to help explore options and work towards a quick and amicable resolution.
