If we cannot do so before move-in day, we will be able to revisit this request after our three-week assignment freeze, at which point we will better understand what spaces are available due to no-shows and cacellations. We cannot promise a re-assignment, but we will do what we can to accommodate you.

Requests received during the week will be processed the following Monday.
