How to request a room change for fall 2017

Students can request a room change or a room swap online.  The requests are reviewed every Thursday.  Students will receive an e-mail response to their Kean University e-mail either approving or denying the room change/swap request.  The last day to request a room change will be Thursday, August 10, 2017.   Anyone wishing to request a room change after August 10, 2017, will have to wait until Fall Room Change Day on Sunday, September 10, 2017.
