Moving out of transitional spaces
If all three residents agree, students may remain in transitional housing. Please know that students who turn down the opportunity to move will not be eligible for the credit. Moreover, RCL will not be able to make another offer until all other students in transitional housing have been offered the opportunity to move.
RCL attempts to move transitional students into permanent spaces as close to their transitional space as possible. Therefore, we typically use the following process in offering students permanent room assignments.
(1) If a vacancy occurs on residence hall floor, that space is first offered to someone in transitional housing on that floor.
(2) If a vacancy continues to exist, we offer that vacancy to someone else in that building.
(3) If that vacancy continues to exist, we offer that vacancy to someone from another building.
For example, if a vacancy becomes available in Curry 620, we first offer it to people who live on Curry Sixth Floor. Then, we offer it to others in Curry. Then, the room will be offered to someone from another building.
Please note that no resident in the room is designated as the "third resident." When a potential space arises, RCL notifies the residents of an affected room that there is an opportunity for one of them to move into a permanent space. Typically, the students decide amongst themselves who will move. If necessary, the Residence Education Coordinator (REC ) or Associate Director (AD) will work with them to determine who will move.
