Room Changes

Room Change Process

Housing and Residential Life is committed to fostering roommate relationships centered in open communication and mutual respect.

The majority of students share a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, and/or common space with one or more roommates. Once you receive your room assignment, you can find your roommate’s name(s) and Husky email(s) in your Housing Online portal. We strongly encourage you to contact your roommate(s) through their email. Breaking the ice and starting to communicate before move-in will allow for you to begin the process of getting to know one another and ease any anxieties you may have about sharing your space. Once you have started to build a relationship, you can start to discuss expectations on how you will share your room such as cleanliness, sharing of items, and much more.

After moving in, you will complete a roommate agreement that outlines these expectations. First year students are required to complete the formal agreement, and all returning students are strongly encouraged to complete the agreement, as well. Each roommate should approach the agreement with an open mind and clearly communicate the aspects of common living that are most important to them.

If you are having a roommate conflict, it is important to address it immediately. If you need assistance approaching your roommate, your Resident Assistant can assist by practicing talking points or joining the conversation. Residential Life staff of all levels will work with you and your roommates to resolve conflicts. All attempts to resolve conflict so that roommates can maintain a respectful living environment will be explored prior to considering requests to change your room.
