Students seeking a room change have many options. If you are currently on campus and would like a room change for the following term, go to DartHub, Housing StarPortal and fill out the relevant term's housing application by the appropriate deadline, making sure to check on the application that this is a room change request. Requests are reviewed, along with all regular applications, by priority number.
Assignments for winter and spring terms will be available on DartHub, Housing StarPortal. We will send you an email to let you know how to access your assignment.
When to Seek a Room Change
If you apply for room changes between terms, you will be able to check if your room change is approved online at the same time all new assignments are posted.
If you are looking for a room change after the term starts you should contact the Assistant Director of your community. The Assistant Director will work with the Housing Office to determine where any vacancies may exist.
Room changes within the same term are not permitted after the housing application deadline for the following term.
Finally, students can seek a room swap after opening. A room swap is a person-for-person room change that occurs during the first half of a term (the deadline is the housing application deadline for the following term). For a room swap to be approved, all affected residents must email their consent to the change to the Undergraduate Housing Office. Once all roommates are heard from, the change can be approved and all involved will receive a confirmation email.
Please note that students who went through our online room selection and were able to choose their roommate(s) for the term must have any room change or room swap approved by the Director of Housing.
