Both converted and temporary housing allow Housing Services to maximize its use of housing space to place more students into housing, at the beginning of the year. Since the demand for housing usually exceeds the amount of units available, Housing Services has identified different units on campus that are able to accommodate more students in need of housing.
Converted housing occurs when students are assigned to regular residential spaces that have been converted from a double unit to a triple unit. Students who are assigned to a converted space are considered permanent residents of that unit and all residents will receive the same amenities and furniture.
Converted housing residents are not required to move during the academic year. Should a resident of a converted unit request a move to a standard unit, their request will be processed ahead of regular room change requests. Want to get a better idea of a converted unit?

Temporary housing is when residents have been assigned to a residence hall study lounge that has been adapted to a private residential space. All necessary furniture for each resident is provided. The residential space is temporary and as soon as a permanent space becomes available, the temporary resident will be required to move to a new space.
