Housing Assignments FAQ's

Room Assignments

All applications submitted by May 1st will receive their room assignment sent to their RU email address by June 1st. Students who submit their application after May 1st will get their room assignment after June 1st. 

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.
