Moving 2 electrical switches, but cant re-wire the apartment

I'm converting a studio which has 2 doors into a walk in closet in an apartment that I'm renting. One of the walls that I will be blocking in with the closet, has the current electrical switches for the lights. How can I control the lights from the other wall? I would ideally move the whole electrical box, but since this is not my property, I can't do that. any suggestions are welcomed.

Suggestions? Have the LL call and electrician to do this job properly.
You SHOULD NOT be doing electrical work in a place that your rent.
