Room Selection (University Housing – Incoming Students)

June 17, 2013 – June 29, 2013 all-day

University Housing room selection information:

The Room Selection process is done on a First Come, First Serve System. Students that are eligible to participate in the Room Selection Process may do so as long as space is available. The first phase of room selection takes place in the spring for returning residents. If a returning resident misses the deadline for the first phase, the student will be allowed to select a room the Friday at noon, following their application contract received date. Once a selection is made, it will not be changed until the open room change period.

Room selection at Georgia State University is an on-line process. After a new or returning resident completes an on-line application, pays their Room Reservation Fee, he/she will have the ability to choose the Residence Hall/Living Space where they wish to reside, if eligible. Room selection is based on eligibility and availability.

Roommate Swaps/Changes

Residents may submit a request for a room change prior to the start of classes.  Room changes that occur before the start of the semester must be submitted by the resident through MyHousing.

Deadlines for room change request before the start of classes:  Fall – August 2 and Spring – November 27.

Room change requests that occur after the start of semester require approval by the Resident Hall Director (RHD).  Room changes, if approved will occur between the following dates:

Spring Semester: February 4, 2013 – March 4, 2013
Fall Semester: September 18, 2013 – October 30, 2013
Spring Semester: February 5, 2014 – March 5, 2014

Room change fee is $50 per move and additional charges for room rate increase.

No room changes are to take place until written approval is received by the Resident Hall Director (RHD).  Any student making a room change without approval from University Housing may be subject to disciplinary action, reassignment to their original room, and/or illegal room change fee of $225.  University Housing does not guarantee that a room change request will be approved, room changes will not be made based upon race, creed, color, sexuality or national origin.

If request is approved, the resident must change rooms within 48 hours after receiving approval.  Failure to move during the designated time may revoke the approval and improper check-out fee will apply.  Resident may change rooms only once per semester.  Any living standard conflict that may arrive that cannot be resolved by the resident will be addressed through mediation by the Resident Assistant or RHD.

University Housing makes every attempt to accommodate resident needs, but does not give the resident the right to occupy a specific room.  Resident may be relocated at any time at the convenience of University Housing.
