Students moving in

Changing Room Assignments

We understand that students seek a room change for any number of reasons. Whether you are experiencing roommate conflict, simply want to swap rooms or merely want a change in environment, our staff is here to help you. Students who wish to change their room assignment should submit a request via their Housing Self-Service portal located on their MyFurman account. From there, students will meet with one of our Assistant Directors.

Room changes will be made based on space availability. If space is not available for a student to change to, our staff will continue to work with you.

Requests approved by the Assistant Directors by Tuesdays at 5 p.m. will be submitted to our Assignments Coordinator for final verification and upload into the university system. Students will be notified by noon on Thursdays about when and how to move. All moves must be completed over that weekend. Requests that are approved after 5 p.m. on Tuesdays will be processed the next week.

If you have a vacancy in your room, please make sure the extra furniture and closet are free and clear for a new student to move-in. Additionally, you will receive 24 hours notice (when possible) of a new roommate via your Furman email. While there may be some situations that we cannot provide 24 hours notice, we will make sure that you are aware of a new roommate.
