We understand that in some cases your room assignment may not meet your needs, and when a change in assignment is possible we will be happy to help. However, we do require that changes take place only after they have been approved by Residence Services. This will ensure that your student account and our occupancy records are kept accurate. It also helps you avoid charges that are associated with unapproved room changes. A transfer fee of $50 and cleaning charges will be applied to your account. Cleaning charges are $10 for every 15 minutes required.
Priority Room Transfers
In general, transfer requests are dealt with on a first-come, first-served basis but UFV Residence Services reserves the right to adjust transfer priorities as needed. If you have special needs for a high-priority [expedited] room transfer, please explain this on the transfer application. Documentation of medical or other special needs may be required. If you have not already done so, please complete the Special Consideration Form.
Room Transfer & Residence Fees
If you wish to change rooms before or after you move in, you will have to submit a Room Transfer Request form and email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You may pick up one of these Transfer Request forms at the Front Desk. Once submitted, we will work on this as soon as possible, but please be aware that this procedure may take a few days due to the availability of rooms. When a space becomes available for you Residence Services will contact you and advise you to come to their office to obtain your necessary written authorization and pick up the new keys. It is at this time that the transfer fee of $50 and the necessary cleaning charges will be applied to your account. Cleaning charges are $10 for every 15 minutes required.
If wish to cancel your Residence Contract and find accommodations off-campus, please submit a vacating form and send an email to email@example.com indicating so. Please note that cancellation charges will apply. Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact us.
