Room Change Process

Room Change Process Information

  • Residents who are approved for a spring room change during the fall semester must remove all of their belongings at the end of the fall semester and check out. Upon check-in for the spring semester, approved residents will move their belongings into their new room. Detailed information concerning this process will be emailed to those with approved room change requests.
  • Once a room change request has been approved, the resident will be required to check in to their new housing assignment at the beginning of the Spring semester. Failing to fulfill the approved room change may result in a $75 improper checkout fee, charged to the student’s account. The student may still be required to relocate, as room changes may impact other residents’ approved room changes.
  • Room change requests are not guaranteed, as requests are contingent upon spaces that are available to the specific resident, at the time of placement.
  • Residents who reside in traditional residence halls such as Mackin, Bischoff, Pine, and Laurel are not permitted to have household appliances, as per the prohibited items list. Residents who reside in The College Park Apartments or The Village are permitted to have most household appliances. All students who relocate are encouraged to refer to the prohibited items list. Please review this list before moving.
  • Residents who reside in traditional residence halls such as Mackin, Bischoff, Pine, and Laurel are required to have a meal plan. Only resident’s assigned to The Village and The College Park Apartments have the option of forgoing a meal plan. Residents relocated to The Village or The College Park Apartments during the open room change period, have the option of dropping their meal plan (if applicable); these residents must email mealplan@ramapo.edu between December 1 and January 3 to request that their meal plan be removed. Residents who do not select a meal plan will automatically be assigned the Simple 7 meal plan. Residents relocated to The Village or The College Park Apartments, after the semester deadline date to drop a meal plan, will not have the option of removing their meal plan if they have one.
  • Please note that it is the resident’s responsibility to review room and board costs, which are posted on the Office of Student Accounts website.
  • Residents who are approved for a room change are responsible for updating their parking information (if applicable). Residents with current parking permits must go to the Office of Public Safety (ID room) to return their old parking permit for a new one. Residents requesting a parking permit for the first time must apply: www.ramapo.thepermitstore.com. Questions regarding parking should be emailed to the Office of Public Safety at parking@ramapo.edu.
