Room Assignments

Priority is given in room assignments to returning residents and full-time students from outside the Memphis metropolitan area, which includes Shelby, Tipton, and Fayette counties in Tennessee; Crittenden County in Arkansas; and DeSoto County in Mississippi. Second consideration is given to full-time students from within the Memphis metropolitan area. Part-time students will be given third priority, except in the case of graduating seniors during the trimester prior to graduation who do not need 12 hours to graduate. These seniors will be considered as full-time students for residence purposes.

Students must abide by all rules and regulations governing the residence hall as outlined in the current Residence Hall Handbook. Residents must be registered for college credit at Baptist College of Health Sciences in order to be assigned a residence hall room and gain housing privileges. Students who do not abide by campus housing policies and procedures will be asked to vacate the residence hall without refund.

Baptist College reserves the right to make all initial room assignments and to make any subsequent assignment changes or transfers considered necessary.

Roommate Requests
Roommate requests must be mutual. Every attempt will be made to honor requests. Final roommate assignments are made at the discretion of the residence life specialist or director of student services and housing.

Room Changes
All students interested in changing rooms need permission from the residence life specialist or director of student services and housing. Students who request to change rooms will be required to explain the reason for their room change.

Students making unapproved room changes without proper notification, approval, and paperwork will be fined $50 each and will have the room changes negated.

Where there is a vacancy in a double room, the room must be maintained by the occupant in a manner that will allow another student to move in at short notice. Students who do not have a roommate for reasons beyond their control will have the option to find another roommate. If they do not find another roommate, one will be assigned. A roommate may be assigned at any point during the semester, or the student may be asked to move to another double-occupancy room.

Reservation of Rights
Baptist College of Health Sciences reserves the right to:

1.) assign applicants to available space in campus housing;

2.) alter any assignment at any given time, in the case of administrative or disciplinary action; and

3.) deny the privilege of college housing to any student who has demonstrated behavior that significantly disrupts the residential community.
