This section applies to everyone but new, first-time students (freshmen). Once you have successfully assigned yourself to a room, you may make changes by following one of the processes below. Be sure to read through both before you make a decision.

To "Room Change Re-Assign" means to select a new room while keeping your old room, without cancelling your housing application. Once Current Campus Residents, Upperclass Non-Residents, or Transfer students have selected a room, they will be able to see available/unfilled rooms to make changes to their selection. If you don't see a space you are interested in, you might want to consider Room Swap instead.

    • Name
    • UNCG ID Number
    • Hall and Room to which you are currently assigned
    • Name of the Student with whom you want to switch rooms
    • His or her Hall and Room assignment
