Winter Vacancies

Contributed by Amanda Walrad on 12/06/12 

As the fall semester comes to an end, some of you may have an expected or unexpected vacancy in your room, suite or apartment.   Whether you anticipate a vacancy or not, the Office of Residential Life strongly recommends that you complete a vacancy form indicating the individual you would like to pull into your room in the event that a space opens.  If a vacancy occurs in your room, suite, or apartment and we do not have this form on file, we will assign that space to a student interested in living in that particular area.
