Petition to Oppose Housing Changes

The Department of Housing and Residence Life has proposed significant changes for the way housing sign-ups are done in the future. Among the changes is the removal of squatters/pull-in rights. If we understand correctly, this would mean that students could no longer count on staying in any on-campus residence for more than one year. Students could no longer replace old roommates with new roommates of their choice. By approving the changes, Res Life would essentially reset the housing system each year. The changes are bad for anyone who likes the room/apartment in which they live and wishes to remain in the same place on campus beyond one year. It disallows rights that are granted to anyone who pays rent to live in an apartment. Moreover, since housing is already comparatively overpriced, these changes would further remove any living advantages that on-campus housing once offered.

This petition is signed by people who are against the housing sign-up changes proposed by Saint Louis University\'s Residence Life. Although the housing sign-up process is not without its faults, we feel that the proposed changes are not the answer. We feel the proposed changes take away too much of our freedom as paying customers to SLU to choose with whom and where we live. Overall, we believe the changes would be bad for the students of Saint Louis University
