Room Transfer Procedure

Room transfers are offered to facilitate the development of mutual friendships, similar academic interests, relocation to a more desired area, and to mediate roommate conflicts.

We encourage residents who are having challenges with their roommates to work with their Resident Advisor (RA) to request a roommate mediation prior to requesting a room change. All room changes must be pre-approved by Student Housing & Residential Life.

The room change period begins on the 12th class day and ends 2 weeks prior to the first day of final exams. Room changes are only applicable to Moody Towers, Cougar Village I, Cougar Village II, Cougar Place, Quadrangle, Calhoun Lofts, and Bayou Oaks.

Submitting a room transfer request does not guarantee we will be able to accommodate your request.
