Tenochca to South Campus Plaza Move - 2016-17

The Tenochca community will be transitioning to the South Campus Plaza complex at the end of the Fall semester and beginning of Spring semester. There are several important steps for each resident to follow to make this a smooth transition. 

Steps for T2SCP Transition

  • We understand that many of you will want to stay with your current roommates and current room-type. You will be able to do so if you choose. You will also be able to select a double occupancy room-type and different roommate(s) if you would like to do that instead.
  • The Residential Education staff of Tenochca will be hosting a number of Roommate Matching Parties for those seeking other roommates on Wednesday October 5 and Thursday, October 6 at 6:00pm. Look for posters in Tenochca.
  • Housing Administration will need to know your preference by Monday, October 10 at noon. For those who do not notify Housing Administration of their selection, assignments will be made for them.
