Room Change Information and Online Form
Students are allowed to switch rooms at any point during the semester, except for the first and last three weeks of the semester. A student may only change rooms once per semester. If a room is not available at the time the application is turned in we will hold the application until a room becomes available.
Room change notifications will be sent via email. Please check your SJC email address for specific information about keys and moving. You will be given 48 hours to move and return your room keys. Please know- Private rooms, Schwietermann rooms, and the Residential Suites (Apartments) are an additional cost per semester.

Room changes are processed by date of submission, quality points, and in consideration of available bed spaces. Not all room changes will be approved.

Room Change Options
PRIVATE ROOM: Students have the option of paying for their room to be a single, or moving into a private room on campus.
Some private rooms may have only 1 set of furniture, but all furniture already in a room must remain in the room. Private rooms are an
additional cost and only available in Bennett, Justin, Merlini, Seifert, and Schwietermann. For the specific cost please contact
