I'm supposed to move in next week and still haven't gotten a room assignment. I've called them multiple times and been promised that I would have a room yet I am cautious since a friend of mine got an email yesterday apologizing and stating that he could not move in until the 18th even though he has been in constant communication with them about moving in early.
Needless to say, I'll be on the phone with them first thing in the morning.
Are they making you pay a fee for moving in early? I am interested in moving in early also but I am not sure if they will let me since I currently live in Houston.
Sorry for the (very) late response. They are making me pay pro-rated rent for the month. It was extraordinarily difficult to move in early, but finally happened on-time. There are tons of rooms that are empty, so if you still want to move in early it may be possible given an appropriate amount of pressure and phone calls. Try speaking to Melissa in the main housing office. They are the only people really able to help. Even then, it will take both emails and phone calls.
