Private Room & Consolidation Policy


All students who live in a single room must pay Robert Morris' private room rate. The Office of Residence Life has the authority to require students, if they are the only student living in a double occupancy room, to take a roommate or consolidate. (The process of consolidation means a student can relocate to another room where a student lives with an open space or accept a new roommate. Students can proactively talk to an Area Coordinator or Assistant Director of Residence Life to find a roommate before being assigned one.) If the option is available, students who refuse a roommate will automatically be charged for a single room. The cost of the room may be prorated to coincide with the time the student lived in a single. To avoid this, a student has one week to select a new roommate before being charged a single rate. However, the Office of Residence Life is not required to provide this option to students.

 

If a student is residing in a room with an open space and not paying for the single room, they are not permitted to take over the furniture (bed, desk, dresser, closet, space) of that empty spot. These areas must be ready in case a student is assigned to that room.
