If there is a vacant space in a room, the remaining roommate(s) may request the option to buy out the additional room space. Room buyouts are offered on term-by-term basis and are subject to current availability and occupancy needs.
In the event that a room buyout is approved, no additional roommate would be assigned to the vacant space for the rest of that term, and the extra space and furniture in the room is available for use by the remaining roommate(s). No furniture is removed in the event of a buyout.
An increased room rate will apply to students who buy out vacant space; the rate is typically about 1.5 times the amount of the current room rate. For example, a student assigned to a double who buys out the vacant space, would pay 1.5 times the amount of the current double room rate for the rest of that term.
Student with a vacant space in their room who would like to request the option of buying out the remaining space for the rest of the term should contact University Housing & Dining Services for information about the process and rates.
