Western Kentucky University

Room Assignment Process

Room Assignment Process

 

The University agrees to determine room assignments based upon:

  • Date of receipt
  • Indicated preferences
  • Priority Status

Returning residents who renew their housing agreement prior to the established deadline are given "priority status" and are reassigned first. Incoming freshmen and transfer students are assigned next. Returning students who apply after the deadline are not guaranteed a hall/room assignment for the upcoming academic year.

The University makes all assignments without regard to race, sexual orientation or national origin, and rejects all requests for changes of assignments based upon these factors.

A resident may not sublease or rent a room assignment, or permit another person to share a private room assignment.

The University reserves the right to modify room assignments for disciplinary reasons, catastrophe, closing of the facility or unresolvable roommate incompatibility. This agreement may also be canceled by the University for disciplinary reasons. Students removed from University housing for disciplinary reasons will remain obligated to the terms of this agreement and any applicable fees.

If housing demand exceeds capacity, the University reserves the right to use a limited number of temporary room assignments on campus.

Room Change Process

Residents must observe the room change procedures established by the University. They must have prior written approval before making a room change.

If a vacancy occurs in the assigned room, the remaining resident agrees to:

  • Seek out another roommate,
  • Accept another roommate as assigned,
  • Move to another room if requested,
  • or pay additional charges based upon lower occupancy of the room.

Private Rooms

If space is available, requests for private rooms will be approved on a first-come, first-serve basis. The resident of a private room agrees to pay the additional charges either before the semester begins or before the move is complete.
