Remember, once you choose as space you are locked in until room changes open in May. Room changes are also made easy this year! Just log back into the room selection piece of the application to find a new space from May 13th to July 31st.
But remember, you can only make edits to your room selection until July 31st! You can check the room change daily to see if a space in your preferred location become available!
It is important to note that spaces may not be held for roommates. Roommates should plan to call DIBS on their space at the same time.
