Trading Spaces Information (First-Year)

Trading Spaces allows incoming first-year students to submit one of three requests:

1) Request to Trade Spaces to a different Learning Community
2) Request to Trade Spaces to a different Learning Community AND preference a roommate
3) Preference a roommate within your current Learning Community

The primary goals of Trading Spaces are to:

  • Support students in getting their preferred Learning Community.
  • Support students in getting their preferred roommate.

Trading Spaces allows students to make one request to change to a different Learning Community on campus and/or request specific roommates.

First-time, first-year students can submit a Trading Space request from Wednesday, June 1 to Friday, June 10.

Results of Trading Spaces requests to change to a different Learning Community will be communicated on July 15. Trading spaces requests for a specific roommate will be available on August 1 when room assignments are released (July 15 for Wellness Environment).

The next Trading Spaces period will begin soon after the Fall add/drop period ends September 12.
