Room Changes

Room Change Requests for Current Residents

During fall and spring semesters, a flexible room change opportunity will be offered to students who wish to change rooms, buildings, or apartment complexes. Information about this process will be sent to residents via Ole Miss Gmail after each semester begins. Room change options will be based entirely on space availability. During the times that room changes are unavailable, student housing staff will be conducting necessary inventories of rooms and accounting for available spaces. 

Room changes available for Fall 2018: 9:00am on August 28 – 4:00pm on November 15

Room changes available for Spring 2019: 9:00am on January 30 – 4:00pm on April 6

To request a room change, submit an online form that includes your building preference. You may also enter a specific room number.

Once you’ve submitted this request, your Community Coordinator or Graduate Community Director will schedule a meeting with you within five business days. If the building or room you requested is not available, you will have the opportunity to review other options. If you feel unsafe in your living environment, please contact your Community Coordinator or Graduate Community Director immediately.

Once your room change has been approved, you will be notified via Ole Miss Gmail and will have 48 hours to complete your move.

Please be aware that room changes are not guaranteed and are based on availability. Note that rates vary by building and room type.

You may submit multiple Room Change Requests during your student housing contract period.

Students wishing to relocate to one of the residential colleges will complete an additional application process. Please contact the RCs directly for availability and information on the application process.

Room Changes for Incoming Freshmen

As students participate in room selection, availability of buildings and rooms changes frequently. If you would like a space other than the one you have selected, you may use the Room Change section in the housing application to view available spaces and select a new one. The extended deadline to change rooms prior to move in is 12:00pm on July 27, 2018. The next available opportunity to change rooms will be after the semester begins.
