Room Change Procedures | Pepperdine University

Room Change Procedures

Due to the need to establish the hall community and provide a smooth transition into the academic year, no room changes will be permitted during the first three and last three weeks of the fall and spring semesters.

During the semester: The student must first contact his or her Resident Advisor (RA) to make him or her aware of the desire to initiate a room change. The RA and Resident Director (RD) will decide whether a room change is necessary by working with the student and his or her roommate through the BHR and mediation process to address any issues that exist. The HRL Staff will determine which, if either, student will move, if the situation cannot be resolved.

If the student's room change request is approved, he or she will receive confirmation from the HRL Office regarding the details of the move. All bed spaces must be left empty and ready for a roommate to move into the room at any time. If a new roommate is placed, HRL will do its best to give notice 48 hours in advance, but there are special or emergency circumstances that necessitate immediate moves. Please review the fines associated with improper room changes and roommate preparation below.

Between semesters: Any student can request a different space for the spring semester directly though the HRL Office. After a room change offer is accepted, the resident is required to move to the new assignment. Students currently living on campus but moving to a new assignment must move all of their belongings out of the old room before leaving for break.
