Room Changes

Sometimes changes of room assignment are necessary. Generally, room changes are not allowed during the first two weeks of any semester. If you wish to initiate a room change, contact your RA or your Area Coordinator for information on the procedures. All students who are part of any proposed move must freely agree to do so. Students who change rooms without approval are required to return to their original assignments. RISD reserves the right to change a student's room assignment at any time, for any reason. Students in shared rooms who find themselves without a roommate are contractually obligated to accept a new roommate at any time. Behavior on the part of the original occupant that discriminates against a newly assigned occupant of the room may result in the reassignment or removal of the original occupant.
