Request a Roommate OR Room Change

For All Roommate Requests:

You must match with a roommate in the Housing Application BEFORE you select a room space.

Both students requesting to live together MUST have a contract for the same hall and room type. If they do not, at least one student must complete a Hall Change Request.

For Contracts Beginning August through December:

Roommate notifications will be available in the Housing Application approximately two (2) weeks prior to move in. You will receive an e-mail to your UTA e-mail when this information is available. Room and Roommate assignments are subject to change without notice for a variety of reasons including student cancellation, consolidation, etc.

Prior to July 31:

  • If you HAVE selected a room:
    • Use the room/hall change request form in the Housing Application (opens mid-April)
  • If you have NOT selected a room:
    • Use the Housing Application to search and match with roommates

After July 31:

  • Requests will not be accepted until move in day. At that time, you may request a change as follows:
    • If you would like to request a roommate or change rooms within your Residence Hall, please visit the front desk of your Hall to request this change.  
    • If you are requesting to change to a different Residence Hall or room type, please visit University Housing located in the E.H. University Center building.
  • Requests will not be processed until the third (3rd) week of the fall semester. This allows us to verify who has and has not moved in as well as to house students who do not have housing.

For Contracts Beginning January through May:

Roommate notifications will be available in the Housing Application approximately one (1) week prior to move in. You will receive an e-mail to your UTA e-mail when this information is available. Room and Roommate assignments are subject to change without notice for a variety of reasons including student cancellation, consolidation, etc.
