  2. Disabilities Accommodations
    • Students requiring special accommodations for medical or other needs should first review “ Information for Students with Disabilities”.  This page will explain the basic process by which the university meets special housing accommodation requests.  Students SHOULD NOT contact the Office of Housing and Residential Life directly, as the Office of Housing and Residential Life does not assess requests for special accommodations.  The Office of Housing and Residential Life will meet student accommodation needs only as directed by the Counseling Center.

    • Students interested in Gender Neural Housing accommodations must complete the Gender Neutral Housing Application and return it to the Office of Housing and Residential Life.

5.  Room Transfer Request Processes

  • Post-Room Selection Transfer Request – students who attend Room Selection but are not satisfied with the room they secure may request a change of assignment using reslutions.pace.edu between April 16 and August 1.  Requests submitted this way will be used throughout the summer to change student assignments based on the preferences indicated.  Requests submitted through the summer will become void on opening day, and students wishing to change rooms from that point forward must participate in the fall room transfer process.
  • Administrative Freeze: With respect to room transfers, the first few weeks of each semester are referred to as an Administrative Freeze period.  During this time room transfers are extremely limited.  This period allows students an opportunity to become acclimated to their new environment, community, and roommate(s), while allowing the Office of Housing & Residential Life, Admissions, Office of Student Assistance, and Academic Departments to verify student status, accounts, and occupancy.  The Freeze can last from Check-in through the second full week of classes, but we work to begin allowing room transfers as quicly as possible.
  • Fall and Spring Room Transfer Request Procedure: Students interested in transferring into a different room may submit a request for transfer through reslutions.pace.edu.  If, after the end of the Administrative Freeze period, space is available to accommodate the request, the Director of Housing will approve the request and the student will be notified by email of the room change.  They will then need to work with the appropriate building staff (RA's and Resident Directors) to properly check out of their old space and in to their new room assignment.
    • Students with continuing and serious room conflict issues should IMMEDIATELY contact their Residence Director in person to discuss the issue.
    • Students requesting transfers may be required to go through a mediation process to identify potential roommate conflicts and community standards violations.
    • All transfer requests are subject to review and availability.  They are NOT guaranteed.
    • Improper Room Transfer: A resident who moves to another room/unit without proper authorization from the RD is considered to have conducted an Improper Room Transfer.  The resident will be will be assessed an improper check-out fee of $50 and may be subject to disciplinary action.
