Room Change (Spring 2018)
Students have an opportunity to change room assignments and/or meal plans for the spring semester. Students who are leaving Wake Forest University for any reason must officially request to terminate campus housing and dining membership and consequently not incur charges for the spring semester. Those students studying aboard during the fall semester will select on campus housing and a meal plan for the spring semester in December. If you have an on campus assignment and wish to petition to be released to live off campus, please read the Off Campus Housing Policy closely.
Some students want to make a change for the spring semester. Because of mid-year graduations and the spring Study Abroad program, many students wants to “Pull-In” a new roommate of choice rather than have a randomly assigned student to the room. Students interested in making a change in their current room assignment or roommate should submit a Spring Room Change Request by 5:00 pm Friday, November 3, 2017. Decisions letters will be emailed to WFU email addresses by Monday, December 4, 2017.
Requesting a Single Room
To request a single room, students should complete the appropriate section of the Spring Room Change Request form. Any available single space outside of Theme/Greek Block Housing will be filled in priority number order (based on the same priority number from the Fall Room Selection process during the previous spring semester). Residence Life and Housing will contact the student should space become available. Typically very few, if any, single spaces become available for the spring semester.
Theme/Interest Housing/Greek Block Housing
To request a room change to or within the Theme/Interest Housing/Greek Block Housing, students should complete Section II of the Spring Room Change Request and the Community Liaison or the Greek Group President must have completed the Spring Room Change Roster and returned to Kristy Eanes in Residence Life and Housing with your name appearing on the roster. Students current assigned to Interest/Theme Housing/Greek Block Housing are only eligible to move within their designated housing blocks. Students who are currently assigned to, or move into, a Theme/Interest Housing/Greek Housing area are not permitted to move outside of the Theme/Interest Housing/Greek Housing area for the remainder of the academic year.
“Pull-In” A Roommate
If a resident has a vacancy in their room during the fall semester, or one roommate is leaving at the end of the fall semester, the remaining roommate may “Pull-In” a new roommate of choice rather than having a new roommate assigned randomly by Residence Life and Housing. The person chosen to be pulled into the room with the vacancy must complete the Spring Room Change Request as the person requesting a room change. In order to complete this change request to be pulled into another room the “puller” must send Kristy Eanes, Assignments Coordinator, an email at email@example.com to confirm they agree to pull you into the vacancy.
Change Rooms and/or Buildings
To request to move within or to another building, students must complete the Spring Room Change Request making sure to indicate only acceptable building/room preferences for a new assignment. Any specific requests should be made in the “Other” section at the bottom of the form.
Study Abroad (STAB)
If you are studying abroad for the fall 2017 semester you must log on and choose your on campus assignment in December.
- In Mid-December 2017, you will be required to electronically self select your actual spring 2018 room and dining membership.
- An e-mail from Residence Life and Housing will be sent to your WFU e-mail account November 30th with log on times. This e-mail will contain specific instructions on self selecting your spring room assignment electronically.
- Wake Forest University views living on campus as integral to a liberal arts education and the Wake Forest experience. In support of that view, Wake Forest University has a policy requiring all students to live on campus for 3 years.
- If you are being pulled into a room by a friend who is currently on campus and has a vacancy, you and the person pulling you in must send an email to Kristy Eanes at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Greek Block Housing – If you are living on a Greek Block in the Spring, you must communicate with the organization President or House Manager.
Leaving Campus Housing/Wake Forest University
Any student currently assigned to any campus housing location who is leaving Wake Forest University for any reason (i.e., studying abroad, graduating, transferring to another school) must petition to be released from their Housing/Dining Membership Agreement by completing the Petition to be Released from Housing form.
Moving Off Campus
Students living on campus during the fall semester who desire to move off campus in the spring should first review the Off-Campus Housing Policies and Process.
All petitions for release from the current academic year Housing Agreement will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis and are not guaranteed. Students should be aware that official release from the Housing Agreement is required prior to signing any off-campus lease. Also, release from the current academic year Housing Agreement does not guarantee approval through the Off Campus Housing Process nor release from the Dining Membership Agreement. Students who desire to petition to be released from the current academic year Housing Agreement should complete and submit the Petition to be Released from Housing form by Wednesday, March 1, 2017.
