Housing Assignments FAQ's

Room Assignments-Fall Semester

All applications submitted by May 31st will receive their room assignment sent to their RU email address in July. Students who submit their application after May 31st will get their room assignment later in the summer. Assignments will be done on a rolling basis.

Room Changes

After the first three weeks of classes the Office of Residence Life is able to look at room changes. If you are interested in a room change please email the office at with your specific request. We will look at the possibility of changing rooms at that time. We will let you know via your RU email if a change can occur. Please note that we cannot guarantee that we will be able to accommodate all changes. 

Cancellation Fees


Please email the office at if you wish to cancel your housing application/contract. You will need to fill out the Cancellation Form (if you are new and cancel by July 15th there is no penalty for the fall semester; if you are continuing and cancel by June 15th there is no penalty for the fall semester).  If you cancel after that date, the $500 housing deposit will be forfeited.

Roommate and Suitemate Agreement

These documents will be used when you move in to make agreements with your applicable roommates and/or suitemates. It will be helpful to look at the topics you will be discussing as you get to know your roommates and/or suitemates before moving in.
