Room Swaps

Pre-Semester Room Swaps

Students who want to change their room assignment before moving into their residence hall for the academic year may utilize the Room Swap system. It is designed to allow students to complete a one-to-one person "swap" of assigned rooms by connecting students with other students on campus who are also looking to change rooms. The Room Swap process can only be used during published Room Swap time periods.

Mid-semester room changes throughout the 2022 - 2023 academic year are made on a case-by-case basis and are not facilitated through this Room Swap Module. Please know that room changes are not automatically granted due to high residential occupancy. Additionally, we offer resources for navigating roommate conflicts.
