Room Change & Waitlist Requests | Next Semester
The room selection process doesn't have to end unless you want it to. If you ended up in a residence hall you aren't satisfied with, or you and your friend had to choose a room away from each other, you can fill out the Hall Waitlist or the Room Change Request Form.
How to request a room change after you select your room:
If you are going through the room selection process and looking to change your room assignment before you move-in, you need to understand the distinct differences between the waitlist form and the room change request form so you know which type of request you should make.
Requests on both forms are granted on a first-come, first-served basis and we process requests throughout the summer. You will be notified through your BGSU email if your request is approved. On average, we are able to fulfill 70% - 80% of the requests we receive but this is solely determined by factors outside of our control. Requests can only be granted if space becomes available.
The waitlist is for Centennial Hall and Falcon Heights only. Students who have a room assignment for next fall semester in a different building, and would like to be reassigned to Centennial Hall or Falcon Heights if space opens up, can place themselves on the waitlist.
If you have a room assignment in Centennial Hall or Falcon Heights, they you will need to fill out the room change request form instead.
LEARN MORE ABOUT THE WAITLIST PROCESS:
Step 1: Fill out the form. The Waitlist Form is for Falcon Heights (returning students) and Centennial Hall (new students) only. If the hall you wish to be re-assigned to isn't listed, you should fill out the room change request form instead.
Step 2: Wait to hear from us. After you fill out the form, and you are next on the list when a spot opens up, a call will be made to the phone number you provided. You will be given 24 hours to accept the offer. If there is no answer, a voicemail will be left. If there is no ability to leave a voicemail an email will be sent to your BGSU Email Account notifying you of the space and deadline. If you do not return the call, respond to the email within 24 hour -or- if you do not want to accept the offer, your name will be removed from the waitlist. The next person on the list would get the offer for the spot.
Helpful tip: Make sure your voicemail is set up so you don't miss this important call.
You can only fill out the waitlist as an INDIVIDUAL. It is very rare two spots in the same room, will open at the same time you and your roommate are next on the list. Because of this, when you get the call to move into the waitlist building, the space will only be for you.
You have 24-hours to accept or deny the reassignment when we call you. You will not be able to wait to see if your roommate gets offered a space before you make a decision.
Yes. You can identify what residence hall and what type of room in the hall you want to be on the waitlist for. If you want to be considered for a single and double in the same hall, you must fill out the form for each.
Yes. You will be able to preference double or single on the waitlist. If you do not want to be considered for both room types, please only select one room preference in the waitlist.
If we reached out to you about an opening and you do not respond within the 24-hour window, the next person on the list will receive the offer and your name will be removed from the waitlist. If you would like to still be considered for an opening in a waitlist hall, please contact our office so you can be removed and then you can re-add yourself.
ROOM CHANGE REQUEST FORM
If you already have a room assignment for next fall semester, the Room Change Request form can be used to make a room change within your hall, building change request, roommate request or to swap rooms with someone else.
Students who want to request to have their room assignment changed to Centennial Hall or Falcon Heights need to fill out the waitlist forms instead.

Step 1 | Figure out which type of request you want to make. There is one request form but there are four different types of request you can make. Please read the information below carefully before filling out the form.
*Conklin Hall and Kohl Hall are options only for new/transfer students.
Step 2 | Fill out the form. The request form can be completed according to the date the system will open up for you. WARNING: If you are a new or transfer student and fill out this form prior to your assigned date, your request will be REMOVED and you will need to re-submit your request after it is officially open.
Step 3 | Wait to hear from us. Our office will process requests throughout the summer and you will be notified through your BGSU email if your request is approved.
