Room Changes

You may only change rooms with proper authorization from your hall coordinator or other professional staff member. Residents desiring a room change must submit a Room Change Application online through your Housing Dashboard. Approval for room changes is at the discretion of the professional staff member. 

Generally, changes are only granted for specific reasons and during a designated window of time during the beginning of each semester.

SPRING 2019 ROOM CHANGES: Room change requests will be accepted from Tuesday, January 15, 2019 until Tuesday, January 22. The requests must be submitted by 11:59pm on January 22. Any requests submitted after this deadline will not be considered. Notification of approved room changes will be sent to a students UNM email address by the end of the day on Wednesday, January 23, 2019.

Approved room changes require that you move from your current space to your new room over the weekend of Thursday, January 24, 2019 to Sunday, January 27, 2019. You will be able to begin moving no earlier than 4:00PM on Friday, September 1 and must complete your move, including the check-out of your old space by 10:00PM on Sunday, January 27th. Full details on checking-in and checking-out will be included in the notification emails sent to students on January 23, 2019.

All residents who have been granted a room change must complete their move and cannot withdraw their request for a move once it's been granted.
