Submissions are binding. If you are authorized for a transfer, you agree to abide by the following rules:
 
  1. If Housing is able to meet one of your choices, you will be required to move within 24 hours. Failure to move will result a $250 penalty that will be charged to your student account.
  2. If you begin moving and do not complete your move within 24 hours of signing your contract, the items in your old room will be considered trash and discarded. The fee for this will be $250.
  3. Pay the daily charges for the space into which that resident transfers, from the day the transfer becomes effective until the last day of the contract period.
  4. Pay the daily charges for the space from which you transfer, from the first day of the contract period until the day the transfer becomes effective, or when all personal property is removed and the keys are returned, whichever is later.
  5. You must check out of your old room properly. Please complete the Web Inventory Report and return your old key.
Since you will be required to move if one of your preferences is met, it is recommended that you use the comment box to state any special requirements you may have for a preference. Please note that applications are processed according to seniority and availability, then based on the application date.
 
If a student is discovered living in a room other than the one for which s/he has a signed Occupancy Agreement, s/he will be charged a $250 administrative fee and will be required to return to his or her assigned room.

 

Please rank your housing preferences below:

Disability Housing Accommodation
 
If you wish to request accommodations on the basis of a disability, you must complete the Disability Housing Accommodations process in addition to completing this form. More information about the process, including required forms and guidelines for disability documentation are available online. For further information, please contact Disability Services at 212.854.2388.

Other Housing Needs

Students may request a housing accommodation for a variety of reasons beyond disability-related accommodations (e.g. safety concerns, identity-based needs, etc.). All housing accommodations will be reviewed by Housing in partnership with the Office of Residential Life and campus partners and resources on a case-by-case basis. If you have any additional questions, please email housing@columbia.edu.

In order for Housing to better understand and try to meet your need(s), please describe below what need(s) you have for a housing accommodation.

Please provide any comments, additional information, or special requirements. We will not move you unless we can meet ALL of the requirements you specify on this form; you may indicate limits on room size, direction of window, etc., but be advised that this will seriously limit our ability to move you.

Confirmation

I agree to abide by the Terms & Conditions above. I agree to pay the new room rate for whatever room to which I am transferred.  (Typing your name in the box below is an electronic signature and is as binding as a written one.)
