During the Academic Year you may need to move out or change rooms.  This includes any Room Change approvals, Graduating or Study Abroad, Transferring to another university, Required or Voluntary Leaves/Withdrawals, changing from a Residential to Commuter Student, and when required because of behavioral sanctions.  Once you are notified by the office that you must move out, this should happen as soon as possible.  Please note that delaying vacating your room may result in charges.  You should work with Residence Life on this move-out date and should contact your Complex Residence Director with further questions. winter asbury jpg

If you are switching rooms on campus:

If you are interested in doing a room change during the academic year, please visit us for the room change procedures or  fill out the online form to begin the process. If you have any questions, please contact the Housing Coordinator at rmeade@drew.edu or call 973-408-3681.

If you are going abroad or graduating and will not be here for the Spring semester:

1) Contact your RA or CRD to schedule an appointment to check-out. Check-out should only be completed when you are completely moved out of your room and you are ready to hand in your key. Take your final exam schedule into consideration. During check-out, your Room Condition Report will be completed, you will sign off on it, and hand in your key. At this point, you are not allowed back into this room (even if your roommate is still there).

2) Inform the Housing Coordinator, remade@drew.edu or  973-408-3681 of your situation and follow all Housing procedures so you are not billed for living on campus for the Spring semester or incur any other charges.

3) If you have rented a refrigerator or a loft, please contact the point person (who you contacted to receive it) and let them know you are leaving. They will inform you how to go about returning the rented item.

4) If you are Studying Abroad, make sure to check with the Center for Global Education to make sure affairs are in order. If you are graduating – contact the Registrar’s Office.

If you are changing to Commuter Status:

All full time, enrolled, undergraduate students are required to live on campus during their years of study at Drew.  Students may apply for commuter status if they will be residing with a parent or with a family member designated by a parent, and live within a fifty mile radius of the campus.  For more information and steps for this process, please fill out the change of housing form.

If you will no longer be a residential student after the Fall Semester:
