2018 Summer Room Change Requests

Room changes are not available for students living in Summer Housing.

If you do not have access to a scanner or fax, you can use a website like http://pdfescape.com/open to fill in the PDF form electronically (there are also lots of iPhone & Android apps that can do this) and then email it to us as an attachment -- just make sure that you use the drawing tool to DRAW (not type) your handwritten signature on the form.

Note: Columbia students living at Barnard as part of the BC/CU Housing Exchange are not eligble to apply for any summer room changes, room swaps, or for the Studio Single Wait List.

 

Studio Single Wait List (rising-Sophomores, Juniors, Seniors)

Students who participated in 2018 Room Selection process and were not able to pick a Studio Single (110th St) may sign up for the Studio Single Wait List. Priority will be determined by lottery number order from Room Selection.

Completed forms must be received by the Residential Life & Housing office (110 Sulzberger) no later than 4pm on Friday, June 22, 2018. The form must include your handwritten signature.

Students on the Guaranteed Assigned List who wish to be considered for assignment to a Studio Single can include that as a room preference on their form (they don't need to submit this form). If you wish to update your Guaranteed Assigned List room preferences, please make sure that you do so on the Barnard Housing Portal before 4pm on Friday, June 22, 2018.

Studio singles cost more than regular singles.  To see the room rates, please visit https://barnard.edu/reslife/policies/housing/room-rates.

 

Rising-Senior Summer Room Change Requests

Rising-Seniors only may request a room change over the summer before the start of the Fall semester. Priority will be determined by Lottery Number order from the 123 Lottery (or randomized number if a students took part in the 4, 5, or 6 Lottery or a pre-Lottery placement process).

Completed forms must be received by the Residential Life & Housing office (110 Sulzberger) no later than 4pm on Friday, June 22, 2018. The form must include your handwritten signature.

Room change results will be communicated via Barnard email by the end of July. If given a room change, you will forfeit your room assignment from the Room Selection process (i.e. it will be given to another student requesting a room change or to someone on the Wait List, etc).

Rising-Juniors & Sophomores may apply for room changes during the Fall Room Change Request process (room changes are not available over the summer, with the exception of the Studio Single Wait List above & Summer Room Swap Requests below).

 

Summer Room Swap Requests (rising-Sophomores, Juniors, Seniors)

Students who participated in 2018 Room Selection process may look for other students to make a 1-for-1 room swap with. This could include students who picked a suite together and want to swap assignments within a suite OR students who want to request swaps between rooms / suites / buildings.

Room Swap requests must be finalized through the Housing Portal by no later than 4pm on Friday, June 22, 2018.

Note: Room Swaps requests may only be submitted between 2 students with an active Fall 2018 room assignments. A student may not request to swap their room with another person after they have cancelled their room assignment via a Housing Cancellation Form or submission of the Notice of Study Leave (NSL) form (to confirm they are studying abroad). If you plan to cancel housing but wish to arrange with another student for them to take your room assignment, the Room Swap Request must be submitted and finalized before you cancel your housing. Room swaps cannot be done for RA rooms and/or rooms in the Columbia Housing exchange. The College reserves the right to reverse any room swaps as needed.
